Apple today seeded the seventh beta of the upcoming tvOS 15 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming one week released the sixth beta.

Developers can download the new tvOS 15 beta by downloading a profile onto the ‌Apple TV‌ using Xcode.

Apple shared little about tvOS 15 when it was unveiled, but there are some new features that are coming to the operating system. SharePlay, a FaceTime feature that lets multiple users watch TV shows or movies together, will integrate with tvOS, and there's a new "For All of You" recommendation engine that suggests shows everyone might enjoy.

A Shared With You section also displays movies and shows that were shared with you through the Messages app so you remember to check them out. When paired with AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, the Apple TV supports Spatial audio for a theater-like surround sound experience, and there's a new feature for automatically connecting your AirPods through Smart AirPods routing.

Hey Siri commands can be used to launch Apple TV+ shows, and two HomePod mini speakers can be paired with the Apple TV 4K for stereo sound. If you have HomeKit cameras, you can also now view multiple cameras at the same time on the Apple TV.

Did they finally add Spatial Audio when two Airpods Pro (what's the plural anyways??) are connected?
Or even make it usable when just one is connected? I tested the latest and audio still goes out of sync very quickly. It’s improved over the betas but still awful. Does it work well for you with one pair?

The only nuissance that i have is that it resets the location where it approximates the TVs location too frequently. I can barely look away for ten seconds before it resets.
Otherwise, it’s been stable and good for me!

Interesting. Is your Apple TV flat on a table or something? Mine is vertically mounted behind the TV. I wonder if that makes a difference.

I've had the same multiple bugs on two Apple TVs, beta after beta, despite reporting each time...What exactly are they updating with each build?! :)
