Apple TV now has over 50 apps included in universal search

21 Dec 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Apple has been steadily adding partners for the universal search feature on Apple TV. Apple’s tvOS has topped 50 apps in the US plus local partners in other regions.

Universal search is one of the more helpful features on Apple TV. It lets you find a TV show across various apps simply by asking Siri or performing a text search.

If you ask Siri to find “the latest James Bond movies” she will give you results from across all the apps that offer it, and highlight any option where it is included in one of your current subscriptions. That way you can easily find what you are looking for and identify the cheapest option. It will even include results from within apps that are not currently installed on Apple TV.

There are now over 50 apps included in universal search in the US. The more apps that are included, the more accurate search results will be.

Universal search is not available in every region as it ties in with Siri. The feature is currently offered in the US, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Span, and Sweden.
