tvOS 9.1 adds support for Siri searches in the Apple Music service. Release notes for tvOS updates are not provided by Apple, making the extensive list of improvements and changes unknown.

Digging around in the tvOS code, developers have also found evidence of support for app folders. As of yet, folders are not available in tvOS 9.1.
