Step-by-Step Guide: Casting from Apple Devices to Android TV
Ever wanted to enjoy your favorite shows, video clips, or movies from your Apple device on your Android TV? This guide is exactly what you need! We will walk you through how to cast content from your Apple devices such as iPhones and iPads to your Android TV. 📲 ➡️ 📺
Please note, in this guide we are using an NVIDIA Shield as an example that runs the Android TV operating system. However, the process will be similar regardless of whether you have an Android TV box or a smart television with the Android TV’s operating system built into it. Ready to dive in? Let’s get started! 🚀
Step 1: Check Your Internet Connection
First things first, you need to check which internet your Apple device and Android TV are currently connected to. This is crucial for successful casting as both devices must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. 🌐
On Android TV, you can do this by navigating to the Settings found in the upper right hand corner of your screen. Click on Settings and then go to Network and Internet under the General settings where you will find the Wi-Fi network you are connected to.
On your Apple device, go to Settings, find and click the Wi-Fi section and check the name of the Wi-Fi network it is connected to. If the network name is different from your Android TV’s, choose the correct network from the available options. 📶
Step 2: Open a Video Application
Once you are connected to the same Wi-Fi network on both devices, go back to your Apple device’s home page. Begin by opening an application with video content such as YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, and so on. 📺🎬
After you launch the app, you want to look for a casting icon. This icon is typically found in the upper right corner of your screen. 👀
Step 3: Choose Your Android TV
After clicking the casting icon, a list of devices you can cast to will appear. As long as your Android TV is powered on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network, it should appear in this list. In our case, we see the NVIDIA Shield. Simply select it and wait for a few seconds. ⌛️📡
Your Android TV will notify you that it’s ready to be casted to as soon as you start playing video content. 📹✅
Step 4: Enjoy Your Content
That’s it! Now your chosen video content will play on your Android TV. Day made, right? 🎉
Keep in mind, each application may have slight differences but the overall process remains the same. If you want to stop casting, just click on the casting icon again and select ‘disconnect’.
We hope you found this step-by-step guide on casting from an Apple device such as an iPhone or iPad to an Android TV helpful. Now, you can comfortably watch your favorite video content on the bigger screen of your Android TV without investing in additional gadgets. Happy watching! 🍿🛋️
