How to use AirPlay on a Mac | Digital Trends Spanish

One of the biggest oversights of MacOS is not allowing users to AirPlay content to their Mac screen from their iPhone or other Apple devices. Then we tell you how to use AirPlay on a Mac (for now; that problem will be fixed in the next MacOS Monterey update).

How to use AirPlay on a Mac

Use AirPlay to send your screen to AppleTV

To stream from your Mac to an AppleTV via AirPlay, follow these steps:

Step 1: Make sure both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. In most cases, you only need to do this once to sync them. After that, you can normally use AirPlay and Airdrop without the devices being on the same network.

Step 2: in the menu bar at the top right, tap the icon Airplay (a box with an arrow pointing in). AppleTV should appear automatically. If it doesn’t appear, check to see that it is set up on the correct network.

Step 3: once you’re connected, the AirPlay icon will turn blue. At this point, your screen should stream to your AppleTV. To adjust settings, such as color or resolution, go to the regular settings of the Screen. By default, the AppleTV will mirror your screen, but you can also configure it to function as a secondary monitor, making it a great option for a wireless setup.

Use AirServer

If you are more interested in streaming to your Mac, we recommend the AirServer app. If you want to stream media from your iPhone to your Mac, this is the way to do it. Once installed, AirServer works the same as AirPlay, except that it is also compatible with Chromecast, Android, and Windows devices.

After downloading AirServer and following the installation instructions, it should automatically appear on your Menu Bar and Mac in any AirPlay search you do, so there are no extra settings required.

AirServer is free for 30 days; then there is a one-time fee of $ 20 for lifetime use. That might be a bad deal now that AirPlay is officially coming in an update, but it might be worth it if you need that feature right now, or don’t plan on getting the update.
