LG starts rolling out Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support to 2019 AI ThinQ TVs

After rolling out Alexa support to its 2019 AI ThinQ TV lineup back in May, LG has announced that it will add Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support to 2019 LG OLED TVs, NanoCell TVs and UHD TVs with ThinQ AI capability via an update starting July 25. It said that LG is the first global TV manufacturer to support HomeKit.

With AirPlay 2, LG 2019 AI TV owners can stream content — including Dolby Vision titles — from iPhone, iPad and Mac straight to their TV sets. You can stream movies and TV shows from the Apple TV app and other video apps as well as view photos directly on their LG AI TVs, play Apple Podcasts, Apple Music and music from the library or other streaming services through their LG AI TV and other AirPlay 2-compatible speakers in their home at the same time — all in sync.

HomeKit enables users to conveniently control their smart home with the Home app or via Siri on their Apple devices. This lets you access basic TV functions such as power, volume and source. LG AI TVs can also be added to scenes or automations along with other HomeKit accessories.

Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit will be rolling out to LG OLED, NanoCell TVs and UHD TVs with ThinQ AI in more than 140 countries starting this week and will continue for  the next few weeks.
