New Apple TV Siri support for Apple Music will have to wait
Cupertino’s new Apple TV has so far gained some mixed reactions from the media. While it is cool to have an expensive set-top box that can play games and that listens to your voice, so far it hasn’t proven to be much different to anything else out there, at various price tags. One major caveat with the service is that even though Siri is being sold as its primary asset, it can’t really do much right now, and Apple plans to address that.
So far the new Apple TV can help you find the content that you want through Siri. You can simply ask for something to watch and Siri will suggest, but the fun ends when you ask it to find you some music. Today Apple has confirmed that it is working on bringing Siri support to Apple Music, but that won’t happen until early 2016. This also looks to be one of those features that will only work if you actually pay for Apple Music as well, so we wouldn’t suggest buying an Apple TV for this in particular.
The new Apple TV is already available for many of you, though this is yet another product you don’t really need, and specially given its “work in progress” launch.
