First macOS 12.2 beta released to public testers with new Music app

A beta version of macOS 12.2 is now available to those enrolled in the public beta program. A native Apple Music app is now available, with faster search and scrolling, and a fix for Safari scrolling on MacBook Pro with ProMotion.

Public and developers are now able to test the first macOS 12.2 beta through OTA updates. You’ll be able to download this from Apple’s Developer website or public beta website if you’re not using the beta yet.

9to5Mac reports that developers testing the next macOS Monterey update, 12.2, found an updated version of the Music app that addresses some of those issues. 

There are still iTunes-like parts of the Music and TV app, but the app now uses native AppKit views instead of web views, which should make the app run faster and be easier to use when interacting with streaming services.

You may notice the biggest difference when searching for music or scrolling through content.

Even better, if you’re willing to run the public beta, you can try it out yourself on your laptop or desktop. You will also notice improved ProMotion scrolling in Safari if you have one of the new MacBook Pro laptops.
