Add TVs and speakers to the Home app

Add every AirPlay 2-compatible smart TV, Apple TV, HomePod, and AirPlay 2-compatible speaker that you have to the Home app. Then you can play what you want, where you want.

Add AirPlay 2-compatible smart TVs

  1. On your smart TV, go to the settings for Apple HomeKit and find a QR code. If you need help finding these settings, contact the manufacturer.
  2. On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, open the Home app, tap , then tap Add Accessory.
  3. Use the camera on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to scan the QR code on your TV screen.
  4. Wait for your smart TV to be added. 
  5. Give your TV a name and choose a room where it’s located.

Samsung AirPlay 2-compatible smart TVs don’t support HomeKit and can’t be added to the Home app. You can still use AirPlay with Samsung smart TVs but can't use Siri to play videos and control playback. To use AirPlay with a Samsung smart TV, make sure that your Apple device and smart TV are on the same Wi-Fi network.

Some smart TVs might require a software update or additional setup with the manufacturer’s app.

Add Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD

  1. Make sure that your Apple TV is updated to the latest version of tvOS, connected to your home Wi-Fi network, and signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID as the Home app.
  2. On your Apple TV, go to Settings > AirPlay > Room.
  3. Choose a room you have set up in the Home app or select Add New Room.

Your Apple TV will appear in the Home app in the Home or Rooms tab.
