I have an Apple TV. The main Apple account that is used to set-up the TV is mine. Without pairing my AirPods, it shows up on the TV when I want to use it while watching something.
Sometimes, someone in the house would use the TV and they have a different Apple ID than me. They have paired their AirPods to their phone. However I couldn't figure out how to have another AirPods that belongs to another Apple ID to connect to this TV.
What I've tried:
- Opened Settings app > Remotes and Devices > Bluetooth. The AirPods does not show up because it's already paired to someone's Apple ID.
- Created a new account on the Apple TV by going to Settings > Users & Accounts > Add new users. This is linked to the Airpods owner's Apple ID. The Airpods still does not show up.
