All Macbooks have built-in AirPlay functionality. You can easily connect your MacBook to your TV with a simple cable. One of the most common ways to use AirPlay on your MacBook is to connect it to an Apple TV device, which then connects over Wi-Fi to your TV or speakers. However, regardless of how you’re using it, connecting your MacBook to a TV with AirPlay is as easy as plugging in a cable and making sure everything’s set up correctly:
Start by downloading the AirPlay application from the App Store
Start by downloading the AirPlay application from the App Store. If you’re using a Mac and want to use AirPlay on your TV, this is the best way to do it. You can also use Apple’s web browser, Safari, which has a built-in feature for streaming content from your computer or iPhone/iPad over to your TV via AirPlay (you’ll need an Apple TV).
If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can use its built-in AirPlay functionality—as long as both devices are connected to Wi-Fi and on the same network—to stream content from one device onto another.
Open the application and connect your MacBook and Apple TV to the same Wi-Fi network.
To start, open the AirPlay application on your MacBook. Next, connect your Mac and Apple TV to the same Wi-Fi network.
If you’re having trouble connecting, make sure that your MacBook is on the same Wi-Fi network as your Apple TV (don’t worry—this will only happen if they are not near one another). If this is not an option for you, then check out our troubleshooting tips below:
- Ensure both devices have updated software; if they do not, head over to (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202039) for instructions on updating them!
Next, select your Apple TV from the list of devices
Now that you have your Apple TV connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Mac, you can select it from the list of available devices.
To do this:
- On your Mac, open System Preferences. Select Displays and look for the AirPlay icon in the menu bar. If it’s not there, click on Show All at the bottom right corner of the window. The AirPlay menu will show up on top of all other windows. You should see icons for each of your nearby Apple TVs or other AirPlay-enabled speakers and displays (if any).
- Click on any of these icons to select it as a target for audio output from iTunes or other apps that support AirPlay streaming (like Spotify).
You can also mirror your MacBook screen on your TV using AirPlay
If you want to mirror your MacBook screen on your TV, you can use AirPlay. You simply need to be on the same Wi-Fi network at home.
To do this:
- Make sure that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. The MacBook and Apple TV should be able to see each other for this feature to work correctly. You’ll know if they’re connected because a green light will appear next to each device’s name in the list of available devices at the top of iTunes’ Source list options (or AirPlay window). If there’s no green light next to either, click “AirPlay Mirroring” in iTunes/QuickTime Player and check that both devices are connected via Wi-Fi again before continuing with these steps below!
- Select “Apple TV” when prompted by choosing “System Preferences” > “Sharing” > “Screen Sharing.” A pop-up message will appear asking whether or not.
Open up System Preferences on your Mac and navigate to the Displays section.
- Open up System Preferences on your Mac and navigate to the Displays section.
- Your Mac will automatically find AirPlay-compatible displays, but you can also connect by choosing “Choose Display” from the dropdown menu in this section.
- Once you’ve selected which display you’d like to mirror from, click on Mirror Displays at the bottom of the list.
Select the AirPlay display and be sure to choose Mirror Built-In Display
Now it’s time to select the AirPlay display. This means you will be able to send the sound and video from your Mac over Wi-Fi directly to your TV or sound system, with no wires needed (if you have a newer TV).
To do this, go to System Preferences > Sound and turn on Mirror Built-In Display. If you’re using a MacBook Pro or iMac Pro, you can also enable audio output by going into System Preferences > Displays > Audio Output and selecting your preferred output device here—the same one that came with your Apple TV 4K or any other AirPlay speaker system.
