Ask Siri to play and control video on your TV

Ask Siri to play a movie or TV show in the room where you want to watch it. Or to send a video that you’re watching on your iPhone to your Apple TV or AirPlay 2-compatible smart TV. And control your TV with just your voice.

Here's what you need


Ask Siri to play what you want to watch

Ask Siri to play a movie in the living room or the latest episode of your favorite TV show in the bedroom.

Just say "Hey Siri," or press the button for Siri. Then you can say things like:

  • "Play Greenland on the living room TV."
  • "Watch the latest episode of Ted Lasso on the bedroom Apple TV."

Some apps and video services require a subscription to play their content.


Tell Siri to send a video from your iPhone to your TV

While playing a movie or TV show on your iPhone, say "Hey Siri," or press the button for Siri. Then say something like:

  • "Play this on the living room TV."
  • "Play this on the bedroom Apple TV."

Use Siri to control what's playing

Ask Siri to turn your TV on or off. Or to play, pause, rewind, and control what's playing.

Say "Hey Siri," or press the button for Siri. Then you can say things like:

  • "Turn on the living room TV."
  • "Stop the bedroom Apple TV."
  • "Play the bedroom Apple TV."
  • "Skip 30 seconds on the living room TV."
