Apple TV’s latest tvOS 9.2 beta brings Live Photos, iCloud Photo Library

Apple rolled out its second tvOS 9.2 beta on Monday, and it includes two major new features users should be very excited about. One is the ability to view Live Photos, and the other is support for iCloud Photo Library.

tvOS 9.2 will be the biggest upgrade the new Apple TV has received since making its debut, adding a long list of new features and improvements, including support for Bluetooth keyboards for easier text entry, home screen folders, and an improved App Switcher interface.

The upgrade also supports the new Podcasts app for Apple TV, support for MapKit, and Siri for those who use U.S. Spanish and French Canadian.

With yesterday’s second tvOS 9.2 beta, two new features arrived. iCloud Photo Library, which can be found in the iCloud settings menu, gives you quick and easy access to all the images you have uploaded to the cloud.

What’s more, you can now view the Live Photos you’ve captured on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Installing the tvOS 9.2 beta is tricky because it requires your Apple TV to be plugged into iTunes using a USB-C to USB-A cable. But providing Apple’s testing goes well, it shouldn’t be too long before the update is made available to all over-the-air.
