AppleTV & airpods

#1

I like listening to the AppleTV with my airpods. Since I also use them on my iPhone, I need to always switch the AppleTV’s audio to use the airpods. I am starting to dislike needing to dig through the AppleTV’s system preference menus to get it to switch to the airpods. Is there any way this can be done with a siri shortcut or other utility?

From the home screen press and hold play, or from a playback screen swipe down from the top and it should be in the right most menu.

Ah no. thats not what i want. I want my AirPods connected to appletv, not back to the phone. Swiping down i can direct my iphone’s audio to play over earpods yes, thats clear. In my case you want to go into thenopposite direction; I want a simple way to connect my airpods to appletv

I love using my AirPods on my Apple TV also (young kids at home).

I have done a lot of research. Can’t do Siri shortcuts. What rose described is the quickest way to change Apple tv’s audio source to AirPods
