TCL Europe's new Google TVs support Apple AirPlay 2, HomeKit for the first time

18 Apr 2022 | Rasmus Larsen |

TCL has partnered with Apple to let users share media files from iOS and Mac devices to their C935, C835 and C735 TVs with AirPlay 2 and control certain TV features through HomeKit.

Apple's TV features were already available in TCL's latest North American models and are coming to three European models this year. The news was not part of TCL's press announcement last week but was confirmed and demonstrated to FlatpanelsHD during a separate presentation.

AirPlay 2 and HomeKit will be supported in TCL Europe's new C735, C835, and C935 models only.

AirPlay 2 lets you share videos, photos, music and other media files from an Apple iOS or Mac device wirelessly to your TV screen, and use streaming service that are not supported directly on your TV. AirPlay 2 in TCL's new TVs works like you would expect – same user interface and setting options as in TVs from other brands.

It is worth noting that TCL's Google TVs – like Sony's – also support Chromecast and Google Home meaning that you get both Apple and Google's casting and home automation features in the same package. Check FlatpanelsHD's TV Database to see which features are supported in which TV models. TCL's 2022 models will be available in Europe in April/May.
