It’s game on with Apple TV
Make sure your party is anything but boring with tons of fun games now available on Apple TV. Get your family and friends involved in some friendly competition and stay entertained for hours. Whether it’s trivia you love, or getting your groove on with some dancing and karaoke, there really is something for everyone.
Do you love a good old school game of Pictionary? Then the Sketch Party TV Free app is the perfect game for you, without the mess of papers and pens! Just enable AirPlay Mirroring, pick teams and you’re all set. Everyone can join in on their own iPad or iPhone as well. Now with different colours to choose from and support for up to 16 players your guests might be sticking around for a whole lot longer than you thought!
If you want to get everyone to their feet and breaking it down at your party then the Just Dance Now app will do exactly that. You and your guests can dance the night away to a selection of hits that are sure to get the party started. The better your moves, the more points you earn. You can even track how many calories you’ve burned so you can have fun and not feel bad about that gym visit you’re planning to skip because you’re sleeping in.
If we’re honest though, what is a games night without a really good round of Trivia? The Trivia Night Companion app works in conjunction with the Trivia app for Apple TV. With everyone using their own iOS device, this game will have your guests hooked and competing for victory to the very last question.
Whether it’s background music to set the party mood or a some traditional Christmas Carols to sing a long to, Apple TV has got you covered. With Airplay you can play your music wirelessly from your iOS device or opt to play directly off Apple TV. Even better, if you’re an Apple Music subscriber you will have access to over 30 million songs and all you have to do ask Siri to play whatever you’re in the mood for. Now that sounds like a holiday.
