Apple Music gains limited Siri support in new Apple TV thanks to tvOS 9.1 beta

Siri Apple Music tvOS 9.1 beta

Six days ago, Apple released the first tvOS beta, for tvOS 9.1, and now an important new addition has been discovered in the software.

According to a report published by iDownloadBlog, Siri has picked up some limited support for Apple Music and voice commands in the newest software. As showcased in a newly-published video, which you can watch below, Siri can be used to search for albums, artists, songs, and even Playlists from the new Apple TV’s home screen. This can all be handled without actually opening the new Apple Music app.

Going a bit further, Siri can also be utilized to play and pause music that’s being played from Beats 1 Radio.

These capabilities aren’t present in tvOS 9.0, the software available to the public right now, but it’s good to see that Apple is building in support for the new set-top box, Siri and the company’s music streaming service. The company recently confirmed that Apple Music would be getting Siri support, but only confirmed an “early 2016” release window.
