Siri is going to start having a stronger presence in Apple’s tvOS and the new tvOS 9.1 beta might be proof of this.
Apple recently confirmed that Siri is coming to Apple Music on the new Apple TV at the beginning of 2016, but a quick study has discovered the virtual assistant can now be used for certain music-related commands on the latest tvOS 9.1 beta ahead of time.
User Jeff Benjamin shared a video demo of Siri being used to search for songs, albums, artists and playlists on Apple Music from the Home screen on the new Apple TV, without needing to open the Apple Music app. Siri can also be used to play and pause Beats 1 radio.
Apple will likely continue testing limited Siri support for Apple Music before making the feature publicly available in 2016, so the functionality may be spotty or unavailable entirely for some users.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
