How to control Apple TV with Apple Watch : Why do you have to look around for your phone or remote when you can control your TV from your wrist? Here’s how to set up your Apple Watch as a remote control for Apple TV.
To add an Apple TV to an Apple Watch, first open the built-in Remote app on the Watch and then write down the code it provided for you.
Once you get the code, it’s time to go to Apple TV and pair your watch with your phone. Open Settings on your Apple TV.
From the setup menu, select “Remote and device.”
From this menu, you can choose to add “Remote Applications” under the “Other Devices” category.
After selecting “Remote Application”, you should see the Apple Watch appear. Go ahead and choose it.
Now enter the code displayed on the Apple Watch remote app into the results screen.
After entering the code, Apple Watch will be paired with Apple TV. It will appear on the main Remote menu. With Apple TV, you can now control Apple TV with Watch.
Let’s quickly review what you will find on a remote application. You can swipe your watch’s screen just like you would with Siri Remote’s trackpad. This will allow you to navigate the Apple TV interface or any Apple TV app you are using.
The play/pause item should be quite self-explanatory, and the Menu button will return to the menu of the Apple TV or current application. For example, if you are in the Settings menu as described above, clicking the Menu button will return to a screen.
In the top left corner of the remote app, there are three blue lines that you can click to return to the home screen.
Unfortunately, Apple Watch is still not as convenient as using an iPhone or iPad. Fortunately, you can now control the 4th generation Apple TV with the Apple Remote iOS app, just like the previous generations (this was not the case when the new Apple TV was first released).
After that, if you can’t find the main Apple TV remote (or if it’s always on the other side of the room and you don’t want to get up), then using your watch as a remote is still very neat. Plus, this is a party trick that impresses your friends.
