iTunes Remote is the best way to control Apple Music, iTunes, or the Apple TV app from anywhere in your home. Simply download the app to your iPhone or iPad, and connect directly to Apple Music, iTunes, or the Apple TV app on your Mac or PC. With iTunes Remote you can: • Access your Apple Music, Apple TV, or iTunes libraries • Browse music by artist, albums, and songs • Browse movies, TV shows, and podcasts • Create and edit playlists • See upcoming songs with Up Next • Search your entire Apple Music, Apple TV, or iTunes libraries • Explore shared Apple Music, Apple TV, or iTunes libraries • Listen with AirPlay • Send music to AirPlay speakers • Group speakers together to play music in multiple rooms at the same time • Set the volume on each speaker independently Requirements: • iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 11.4 or later • Wi-Fi connection to Apple TV, Apple Music, or iTunes on a Mac or PC • macOS 10.15.2 or higher for Apple Music and the Apple TV app • iTunes 12.8 or later is recommended for use with iTunes Remote
I’ve been using this app for years. It’s a fantastic app for playing my music library from my iMac to my Apple TV’s. I have 4 older Apple TV’s in different rooms connected to audio sound systems. I also use 1 HomePod. I can control each room for what I want to play and the volume for each. One request, I wish this app was available for the Apple Watch.
If you’re going to have an app in the AppStore, make sure it actually works and not sometimes. Won’t connect over home sharing OR manually.
Best app in the App Store
You can only play iTunes “Remote” through your home computer. Then Why on Earth would this be called “Remote”? It’s definitely NOT “remote”. If it were, I could play my iTunes playlists on any device I wanted to. You can’t do that with this app. You have to get AirPlay Speakers for it to work. Tsk tsk! This app is useless as I may as well just use regular Home Sharing from my phone and connect it to any device I wish.
Remote is a cool concept. It lets me adjust the Music volume playing on my Apple TV or iMac from my iPhone or iPad. In theory, it could also let me change what’s playing. The in theory part is that I subscribe to Apple Music and have had my subscription for over 5 years. Remote let’s me select among “my” recordings in my Apple library. This is basically the music I ripped or purchased before I started subscribing to Apple Music. It does not let me select Apple Music subscription tracks. It does not let me select Apple Music radio stations. At this point it basically lets me select tracks I’m not very interested in. That’s really limiting.
Love being abele to access my collection exactly as it is on my laptop, unmediated by the AppleMusic iOS app. I really should use it more.
While looking at what’s “now playing”, you can’t take like your song or add it to a playlist.
Not good as in the past
Add lyrics to it and it’ll be much better
I want to be able to control my iPhone music library using my other iPhone. Ie iPhone to iPhone.
