Owners of the new fourth-gen Apple TV can finally play podcasts on the big screen thanks to a new software update that was seeded to users this morning.

Apple released tvOS 9.1.1 to the public today and while it’s a minor update containing mostly bug fixes and performance, Apple has added one major new feature that lets podcast lovers get their fix.

Testing on Apple TV’s next big update, tvOS 9.2, began earlier this month, but it is currently only available to developers. tvOS 9.2 will bring a host of new major features, include channel folders, Bluetooth keyboard support, an improved app switcher, and much more.

Apple TV users can download the tvOS 9.1.1 via Software Update option inside the settings app, or if you have automatic updates turned on it will be ready for you as soon as you turn on your TV.
