Multi-user support is coming to Apple TV
Finally, multi-user support!
Today, at WWDC 2019, Apple announced a bunch of improvements to tvOS, the operating system that runs on the Apple TV. One of the biggest announcements, the inclusion of multi-user support.
Multi-user support at long last
Alongside new screens, support for console controllers, and a couple minor changes, the biggest new change is multi-user support.
That means system-level multiple user logins for tvOS, so you don’t have to change your logins in every app. Now Apple TV will automatically change your user account inside the apps, fixing one of the most annoying parts of tvOS. That also means that the Apple TV app and Apple Music app will bring personalized recommendations for everyone in your home.
If you’re a karaoke fan, Apple Music will also show lyrics that are in sync to the song you’re playing, so you can finally sing along without misheard lyrics. The home screen has been redesigned as well, with full motion previews of shows, similar to how other streaming services already do.
Oh, and Apple TV will have some new underwater 4K HDR footage for screensaver use, in case you ever wanted a deep-sea aquarium but hate water.
