The Apple AirPlay feature allows you to quickly share content from an iPod to a nearby TV or set of speakers. Using AirPlay, you can stream photos, videos and music to a compatible device. You can also mirror the Safari app, which allows you to browse the Internet on a large screen. AirPlay works with an Apple TV or AirPlay-compatible speakers, and is a great way to enjoy your content with friends.
