Hi there, @Lokiofasgard. 👋

If you have a Smart TV, you should be able to cast from your iPhone device to your TV using AirPlay.

The AirPlay button will only show when another source (Airport Express/Apple TV) is available on the network you are on. With that in mind, you can find the AirPlay button in a couple of different places:

  • On the Now Playing screen, when the album art is full screen, the AirPlay icon will appear under the album art to the right of the track info.
  • Whether or not you are in the Pandora app, as long as it is playing you can access Airplay by swiping up from the bottom of your screen to reveal the Control Center and tapping on the Airplay icon there.

Once connected to Airplay, you can use Siri to control playback on Pandora. Pandora Premium and Pandora Premium Family listeners can ask Siri to play stations, Pandora generated playlists, albums, podcasts, and songs on Pandora. Free and Pandora Plus listeners can request their favorite stations. 

You can also find out more about how AirPlay works (including photos) here.

I hope this information is helpful. 🎧
