The long wait for easy access to AirPlay in hotel rooms is over. Sort of. Apple announced Thursday that a hotel chain is supporting the feature that allows iPhone and iPad users to wirelessly stream content to hotel TVs.

It’s a limited rollout, so travelers are left hoping there’ll be wider adoption.

Easy AirPlay to hotel TVs from iPhone or iPad

Way back At WWDC23 in June of last year, Apple promised to add support for AirPlay in hotel rooms to iOS 17. It wasn’t part of the initial release of this operating system, though, so users have had to wait.

No longer. Starting Thursday, guests staying at select properties from IHG Hotels & Resorts have access to AirPlay in their room.

Users scan a QR code on their room’s LG TV and securely connect to it with an iPhone or iPad. The wireless system can be used to stream shows and movies from Apple TV+ and other popular streaming services, listen to Apple Music or other platforms, view photos, practice a presentation, play games on Apple Arcade, or get a workout or meditation in with Apple Fitness+.

More than 60 IHG properties in North America (including ones in the U.S., Canada and Mexico) added support for AirPlay today, including Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Hotel Indigo, Candlewood Suites, and InterContinental Hotels & Resorts. More are expected to be added in the future.
