AirPlay Streaming to Apple TV Now Available to Android Users



Everyone who owns an Apple TV loves AirPlay – it’s a fantastic way of streaming your moves and music straight to your TV that was previously a luxury only iOS and iTunes users could enjoy. However, thanks to the doubleTwist software, users can now send content to the Apple TV from their Android smartphones.

The doubleTwist software for Mac & PC advertises itself as “the iTunes for Android” and allows you to wirelessly sync your iTunes playlists, photos and videos to your Android phone with the accompanying Android application. Its most recent update introduced the ability to stream all of this content to the Apple TV over AirPlay.

AirPlay functionality requires an additional add-on called AirSync, priced at $5, but we think it’s well worth it. The add-on will also allow users to stream to DLNA and uPnP devices like the Xbox 360, Google TV, and the PlayStation 3; as well as some Sonos devices.
