Here’s how to install tvOS 15 beta on your Apple TV

In addition to iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, and macOS Monterey, Apple also released a public beta of tvOS 15 this week. And if you’re wondering how to install a tvOS release beta on your Apple TV, read on as we explain how to do just that.

tvOS 15 is not exactly a major update, but it does come with some nice improvements. Users will be able to watch a movie or TV show with friends and family simultaneously through FaceTime with the new SharePlay feature, and Apple TV software update enables this option.

Apple TV users will also be able to set a stereo pair of HomePod minis as the default audio output, and Dolby content can be watched with Spatial Audio when using AirPods Pro or AirPods Max connected to Apple’s set-top box. If you want to get a preview of tvOS 15 before its official release, there are two ways to do this.

Public beta

The easiest way to install tvOS 15 beta on your Apple TV is by using the Public Beta option, which is available to anyone interested.

First, go to the beta.apple.com website and sign up with your Apple ID (preferably the one you use with your Apple TV). If you have never joined the Apple Beta Software Program before, the update might not appear on your Apple TV, so make sure you are registered in the program.

After that, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app on your Apple TV
  2. Enter the System menu
  3. Click Software Updates
  4. Turn on Get Beta Updates option
