Following the release of the third iteration of iOS 10, macOS Sierra, and watchOS 3, Apple has seeded developers with the third beta of tvOS 10 for testing purposes and debugging. This comes two weeks after the second build of the software update for the Apple TV was released.
Here’s the release notes for tvOS 10 beta 3:
Fixed in this beta
For games that use the GCEventViewController, the game controller’s controllerPausedHandler will no longer be called when the Menu button is pressed, if controllerUserInteractionEnabled is true. This restores behavior established in tvOS 9.2.
• Songs played on Beats 1 can now be added to existing playlists.
• Song playback now functions when accessing songs from Go to Album.
• Go to Artist pages now load.
• Using Siri can now be used to “Like this song” or “Dislike this song”.
ReplayKit’s RPPreviewViewController in sharing mode now properly dismisses the view controller when selecting the “Done” button.
Siri Sports queries in the Norwegian, Dutch, and Swedish languages are now supported.
SKEmitterNode focus issues have been resolved.
Also, you can now ask Siri to direct you to the Now Playing screen in the Music app (this feature disappeared in the previous build for some reason however is back now) alongside ask her to turn on the dark theme found inside tvOS 10.
There’s also a few notable changes in the third beta of the upcoming Apple TV Remote app for iOS. You can read those release notes right here.
tvOS 10 has already brought us updates to Siri including YouTube video search, a new dark mode, Single Sign-On for pay-TV applications, support for entering text via your iPhone, an updated Photos app to correspond with iOS 10’s, and much more.
