Voice control with Siri
Talk to your 4th-gen Apple TV without Siri Remote
The biggest feature of Apple TV Remote that the older Remote app lacks is the ability to use your iOS device’s mic to control Apple TV. Much like the equivalent button on Apple TV’s Siri Remote, you need to place your finger on the button that has a microphone icon and then hold your finger on the screen. Unlike other buttons, this one triggers a vibration, so you don’t have to look at your iOS device’s screen to know you’ve pressed it. Don’t worry about keeping your finger over it, just on the screen; Siri will listen until you lift it, and only then will it react.
