Apple just launched the second beta of an upcoming macOS Monterey 12.1 developer update for testing purposes. A week after the first beta and a week and a half after the official launch of macOS Monterey. Apple is getting away with updates. He does not want anything to go wrong and what is there is corrected.
Registered developers can download the macOS Monterey 12.1 beta profile through the Apple Developer Center, and once the appropriate profile is installed, the beta version will be available through the software update mechanism in System Preferences. Apple has also launched a new beta version of macOS Big Sur 11.6.2 for those who have not yet upgraded to Monterey or cannot install it due to an older machine.
macOS Monterey 12.1 brings SharePlay to Macs for the first time. It is a new feature that is designed to allow you to watch TV, listen to music, and play games with friends and family through FaceTime. It allows all types of applications to work with FaceTime, with content synchronized for all the people who are part of the FaceTime call. You can listen to music with Apple Music and access shared playlists. Watch TV shows and movies together in sync. Exercise together and even share your screen for things like travel planning.
Apple designed SharePlay to work with first-party app options like Apple TV, Apple Fitness +, and Apple Music, but there’s also a developer API so third-party apps can also use SharePlay features in FaceTime. very interesting for games, for example.
Remember that whenever we talk about a Beta we have to be careful with what we install and take into account that it should be done on a second device, not in the main.
