Voice dictation is on its way to Apple TV. Currently, Siri is supported by the device, but you are not able to utilize dictation for searching (including the App Store) or entering user account information, but that will change when Apple releases its tvOS 9.2 beta 3.

The update will also add support for Bluetooth keyboards, iCloud Photo Libraries, and Live Photos, as well as the ability to group apps into folders on the home screen.

9.2 should launch this spring; a hard date may come next month.
