For those of you with the tvOS 14 beta, does this fix the issue where your profile picture won't work if you use a different apple ID for iCloud & purchases?

I'm finding it pretty buggy. I would even noticed anything about my Avatar traveling well.

Does PiP work out of the box for apps that uses the build in video player or do they have to be updated?

I guess Netflix and infuse have to be updated since they use their own player.

Love to hear it.Ive been hearing that all the new software is pretty stable already. This might be a good year of updates.
tvOS proper is not stable unfortunately. Lots of playback bugs in third party apps. Losing remote control, no back/forward. No resume. No setting of the view flag when finished etc etc.

Yes. Picture seems to show up and be updated pretty much instantaneously like other devices now
This may sound silly, but news of this finally working properly has me more excited than the rest of the tvOS update, haha. I've been waiting for a fix for this for forever. Glad to hear it's working!

Now the other question is, does Big Sur fix the exact same problem in the macOS App Store where only the profile picture with initials showed there too.

Dang I didn’t even know there was a profile picture spot in the Mac App Store. Now I can’t unsee it lol

Maybe 2021 is our year!
