If you are an Apple user from 2020 Toshiba or Insignia 4K UHD Smart Fire TV, keep an eye on the latest software updates for your TV as it adds support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. AirPlay 2 lets you stream audio and video content from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac to a compatible device. It is also possible to map the screen on your iOS device. In the meantime, you can use the HomeKit to control your TV using the Siri app or the Home app on iOS and macOS. With voice commands, you can turn the TV on and off, as well as adjust the volume and control playback.
To take advantage of the latter functionality, you’ll need to dig up the settings menu on your TV, scroll to the “Screen and sounds” section, and select “AirPlay and HomeKit.” From there, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup process. If all you want is to use AirPlay, you don’t have to do anything special; the function is enabled by default after installing the new software.
