Part 1. How to Stream Apple Music to LG TV via AirPlay

In September this year, LG launched an integrated Amazon Music app for the OLED, NanoCell, and smart LCD TVs produced between 2016 and 2020 for LG TV owners. This is good news for Amazon Music subscribers, but what are the other LG smart TV music apps available? Well, there aren't many options. But don't worry. We can still stream music to LG smart TV 2019 models, and now let's take a look at how to do that.

Supported devices: iPhone 4 or above, iPad or iPad Mini, iPod Touch 4th generation or above.

Step 1. Make sure that your LG TV and iOS devices are connected under the same WiFi network.

Step 2. Press the 'Home' button on your TV remote control to open the LG menu. Go to 'Home Dashboard' and open AirPlay menu. Enter and make sure your AirPlay is turned on.

Step 3. Swipe up from the bottom of your iOS device to access Control Center and tap on 'Screen Mirroring' to choose your LG TV. A code will show up on your LG TV and enter it on your phone to pair.
