“You can control your Apple TV right from your wrist using the Remote app on Apple Watch,” Lori Gil writes for iMore.
“With the Remote app on your iPhone, you can navigate and interact with content on your Apple TV to your heart’s content — and the Apple Watch is no different. You can swipe through your Home screen content, pause and play movies, and control music,” Gil writes. “The Remote app is installed by default on your Apple Watch: All you have to do is set it up and start using it.”
Gil writes, “If you have already turned on Home Sharing via your iPhone’s Remote app, you won’t have to do a thing: It should automatically connect all your computers and Apple TVs together with any libraries linked to your Apple ID.”
