At WWDC 2019, Apple unveiled several new tvOS features, including new screen savers, a new control centre and multi-user profile support.

First up, the company changed the look of the interface to match its modern design. Not only is the design changed, but Apple has also made it easier to find content to watch.

Part of this update will let apps play full-screen previews on the homescreen.

Swiping in from the side opens a new ‘Control Centre’ for the Apple TV. One of the controls available in the new menu is the ability to switch between different users.

Since the home screen is tailored to each user it makes a lot more sense to have multiple users than it did before.

Tim Cook also announced that Apple is adding support for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers to Apple TV.

Finally, Cook showed off some new underwater screen savers that were shot by the BBC Natural History unit.

The developer beta for tvOS is coming out today. The public beta is coming out later in June and the full version is going to come out in the fall for Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD.
