How do I get AirPlay to work on my LG TV?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To get AirPlay to work on your LG TV, you would need to follow a few steps. Please note that AirPlay is a feature available on Apple devices, so you’ll need an iOS device to use it.

1. Ensure that your LG TV supports AirPlay: Check if your LG TV is compatible with AirPlay. This feature is available on LG TVs with webOS 4.0 and later versions. You can usually find this information in your TV’s user manual or by checking the LG website.

2. Connect your LG TV and iOS device to the same Wi-Fi network: Both your LG TV and iOS device need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network for AirPlay to work. Make sure both devices are connected to the same network before proceeding.

3. Access Control Center on your iOS device: Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to access Control Center. On newer iPhone models without a home button, swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen to access Control Center.

4. Tap AirPlay: In Control Center, you’ll see various options and shortcuts. Look for the AirPlay icon, which looks like a rectangle with an arrow pointing upwards. Tap on it to proceed.

5. Select your LG TV: After tapping on the AirPlay icon, you should see a list of available AirPlay devices. Look for your LG TV’s name in the list and tap on it. You might see icons of a TV screen or speaker next to each device to indicate the type of content you can stream.

6. Stream content to your LG TV: Once you’ve selected your LG TV, you can start streaming content from your iOS device. This could include videos, music, photos, or even mirroring your device’s screen. Simply open the app or content you want to stream and it should appear on your LG TV.

7. Adjust AirPlay settings (optional): If needed, you can access additional AirPlay settings by tapping on the AirPlay icon again. This allows you to adjust options like video quality, enable or disable mirroring, or control playback on multiple devices.

It’s worth noting that the steps may vary slightly depending on the iOS version you have installed on your device. However, the general process should remain the same. If you encounter any issues, make sure your LG TV’s firmware is up to date and that both devices are connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.

I hope this guide helps you get AirPlay working on your LG TV. Enjoy streaming your favorite content!
