If you have been keeping track of all the latest beta versions, you should note that the version will probably come with support for AirPlay 2, enabling the set-top box to be added in the Home app as part of the HomeKit setup from Apple. This will allow users to enable multiple Apple TV models in individual rooms to play the same song. While the functionality was removed in tvOS beta 3, there’s no official word if Apple is planning to add it again.
