In addition to the above features, Siri on Apple TV will also be revamped to include a new card-style interface. The new Siri pop-ups will now appear at the bottom corner of your TV featuring a “more compact design.” Apple’s release notes states, “Siri on Apple TV features a complete redesign, and will be able to recognize each user’s voice, so they can easily access their movies, shows, music, games, and apps, and pick up where they left off. By using the Siri Remote and asking “What should I watch?” users can get tailored recommendations. The more compact design of Siri on Apple TV allows users to quickly view results without leaving the action onscreen.”
As for the final rollout, Apple has not specified as to when the new tvOS 16 features will be made available to the public. However, we can expect the features to tag along with the upcoming tvOS 16.1 release, which will happen on October 24, 2022. If not, the iPhone maker might plan a separate update to be released by the end of this year.
