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.

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!

Also, has anyone else experienced their profile pictures getting squished on Apple TV and the Mac App Store, but nowhere else? My wife's profile picture works just fine since she is not using separate iCloud and Purchases accounts. But on the Apple TV and Mac App Store, the profile image is zoomed out and stretched. Whereas on the iPhone it fills in the full bubble as I'd expect without stretching.

edit: Apparently making the image a square photo fixes the issue for me. What a debacle tvOS profile pictures are...
