LG rolls out Apple Airplay 2

August 2019 Home Security

LG Electronics (LG) has announced that Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit are now available on its 2019 AI TV line-up, making LG the first global TV manufacturer to support HomeKit. These Apple features will be available through a firmware update for 2019 LG OLED TVs, NanoCell TVs and UHD TVs with ThinQ AI capability.

With AirPlay 2, LG 2019 AI TV owners can effortlessly stream content - including Dolby Vision titles – from iPhone, iPad and Mac straight to their TVs. Users can stream their favourite movies and television shows from the Apple TV app and other video apps as well as view photos directly on their LG AI TVs. Users can also play Apple Podcasts, Apple Music and music from their library or other streaming services through their LG AI TV and other AirPlay 2-compatible speakers in their home at the same time – all in sync.

HomeKit enables users to conveniently control their smart home with the Home app or via Siri on their Apple devices. LG AI TVs can be easily added to the Home app, from which users can access basic TV functions such as power, volume and source. LG AI TVs can also be added to scenes or automations along with other HomeKit accessories.

Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit have begun the rollout to owners of LG OLED and NanoCell TVs in more than 140 countries, with the update continuing over the weeks to follow.
