Apple Seeds tvOS 17.4 Beta 5 to Developers

Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming tvOS 17.4 update to developers for testing purposes, with the software coming one week after the release of the fourth tvOS 17.4 beta.

Registered developers are able to download the tvOS 17.4 update by opting in to the beta through the Settings app on the Apple TV. A registered developer account is required.

tvOS software releases are usually minor in scale compared to other operating system updates, focusing primarily on smaller improvements rather than outward-facing changes.

The tvOS 17.4 update adds support for Apple Music SharePlay on the ‌Apple TV‌. The ‌Apple TV‌ user can pull up an ‌Apple Music‌ QR code that can be scanned by anyone, which then allows multiple people to contribute to what’s playing via ‌Apple Music‌. An ‌Apple Music‌ subscription is not required.
