The latest iteration of Apple TV’s operating system, tvOS 9.1, is out of beta and ready for the big screen.

The new update includes support for searching Apple Music with your voice, via the fantastic Siri Remote, so you no longer have to type in long artist names with the weird keyboard line that Apple offers you.

You can update your own 4th Generation Apple TV (the one with the apps and the Siri Remote) right now by going to the Settings app on your Apple TV, then System, then Software Updates.

Besides being able to search Apple Music with your voice, we’re not sure what tvOS 9.1 brings to the table: the release notes are unavailable at this time. One developer has found evidence in the code that might support app folders, but the new tvOS doesn’t seem to have any, yet.

There have been three betas for this version of tvOS, and Tuesday’s update launched along with new versions of OS X El Capitan, watchOS, and iOS 9.2.
