Apple seeded the first beta of its tvOS 16.2 beta to developers earlier this week, and it enables Siri voice recognition on the Apple TV to provide a more personalized experience.
The new feature allows Siri to personalize your Apple TV features by recognizing your voice and switching to your Apple TV user profile. The feature will play your music, make personalized recommendations, and more. The feature supports up to six family members.
The new feature should be available to the public when tvOS 16.2 is released later this year.
Screen Times editor-in-chief Sigmund Judge tweeted on Tuesday, saying it is possible to associate your Siri voice profile from your iPhone or iPad with your Apple TV. Judge said it is not fully functional yet in the beta.
Here’s the setup process on iOS 16.2
Still plenty of questions to be answered. Unfortunately the feature doesn’t seem to be fully functional as of beta 1. pic.twitter.com/e7x80SAb63
