Apple TV_Remote_MetalMorph-PRINT

Apple has already started taking pre-orders for the new Apple TV, the new set-top box is expected to arrive in stores tomorrow. It took the company a long time to come out with an updated model of the only TV offering that it has right now but it’s certainly a big improvement over its predecessors. Siri is now integrated in Apple TV and according to a new report it will get support for Apple Music on the set-top box next year.

This will enable Apple TV users to search for artists and songs via the set-top box by simply asking Siri to do that, since Apple now has a music streaming service of its own, it doesn’t have to tap into a search engine to bring up music from an artist. Apple Music’s library has tens of millions of tracks as most of the major labels have signed on to the service.

Apple has confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it is going to add voice-controlled search next year that will enable Siri to bring up results for artists and music just like it’s able to bring up movies and TV shows right now when the user simply asks for it. It goes without saying that the entire experience will be effortless and very easy.

Call it limited functionality if you will but Siri can only do a handful of tasks on the new Apple TV right now, it only supports a small number of applications and isn’t as advanced as it is on the iPhone. Though development is underway and Siri will surely get support for more applications and get more functionality down the line, with support for running searches via Apple Music confirmed for next year.
