The company has finally brought its podcast app to the set-top box. As part of the latest update for the new Apple TV, it was a strange oversight as a podcast app has been available on older Apple TVs for years, but somehow was left off the newer Apple TV which is more expensive and more powerful.
The podcast app was initially a part of the tvOS 9.2 beta, but Apple saw it fit to release it early in today’s release of tvOS 9.1.1. The tvOS 9.2 update will bring Bluetooth keyboard support, folders, and an updated app switcher when it’s released to the public later this year. The rest of this update is mainly minor bug fixes.
