Following today's WWDC keynote event that saw the introduction of iOS 13, macOS 10.15, watchOS 6, and tvOS 13, Apple has seeded the first beta of the new tvOS 13 operating system to developers.

Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV, the new tvOS 13 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode.

tvOS 13 introduces multi-user support for the first time, along with an immersive new Home screen experience. With multi-user support, each family member can access their own TV shows, movies, music, and recommendations.

Apple has added support for Apple Arcade, and the Apple TV now supports PlayStation and Xbox controllers. There are also new under-the-sea themed 4K HDR screensavers.

The tvOS 13 update is limited to developers right now, but Apple will provide a public beta of the software to public beta testers later this summer. tvOS 13 will see a fall launch alongside iOS 13, macOS 10.15, and watchOS 56

Wasn't "dolby atmos playback" written on the iOS feature recall slide? If so, I hope that also means atmos passthrough on tvOS.

Already posted this in another thread, but this one may get more eyes on it...

Conspicuously missing... any mention of "Computers" (even in the below-the-fold icons) or Home Sharing. Home Sharing not mentioned in any materials related to iTunes split-up either (that I've found).

"Houston, we (I) may have a problem."

Can any beta testers confirm there is a "Computers" app?

I hope it stays but maybe at Apple HQ it went down like this "Can we make money off that?" NO "Then remove it"

I suspect they get constant pressure from the studios to remove it as well.

For me, I use it to easily stream my Home Movies saved to my desktop computer.
I know I can use other means (Plex/Infuse/etc) but this was an easy way.

Does this mean we will be able to use SteamLink.app on Apple TV with X-Box One Controller now?

I’m happy to see support for different users. This is great for families with kids.

It’s hilarious right now seeing my Apple TV suggest watching Paw Patrol after Game of Thrones.

Any word on AirPod sharing on Apple TV? That would be so much more useful than sharing on a phone....
