Just after release of macOS 12.1 Monterey Apple publishes first beta of macOS 12.2.

Notable change in new beta is rewrite of Apple Music app. It is now uses native controls instead of web-like experience.

Some reports are attributing this to internal Apple framework called JET which should allow porting of web apps to use native controls on macOS.

Also Apple Silicon Mac users report smoother scrolling in Safari.
