Introducing a new Flickr experience on Apple TV

Every day at Flickr we are committed to inspiring photography by building world-class tools and beautiful photo displays across devices. Ten years ago we defined online photo sharing as the first major online community to store, organize, tag, and share digital photos. Today, we are excited to provide a stunning new experience for sharing and accessing billions of photos on one of the most dynamic platforms in the market, Apple TV.

Our new service for Apple TV brings all your photos to life on the big screen, where you can engage with the Flickr community, explore the world’s most interesting photos, and use our powerful search capabilities to browse billions of photos within the most extraordinary online photo collection.

Share life on the big screen

Beautiful photos deserve beautiful displays and if you’ve ever shown off your photos on a TV, you know how stunning they look on a large high definition screen! For the first time with Apple TV, sign into Flickr and view all your photos, videos, Favorites, Albums, and Groups. In one click, make any album into a slideshow or screensaver ready to share with friends, or customize in real-time with over fifteen different slideshow and screensaver modes.

Discover the Flickr community

Share your photos and discover others! The beauty of the Flickr community is on display with a dedicated “Explore” section highlighting our top trending photos, weekly photographer spotlights, daily curated galleries and videos, and public photo archives. See photos that you like? Fave them to automatically add to your Favorites. Find someone interesting? Visit their profile to see more or follow them.

Find inspiration

Explore Flickr’s extraordinary photo collection with powerful search capabilities that help you seamlessly find people, photos, or groups that interest you. Simply start typing, and we will automatically suggest topics that are relevant to you. Browse search results by creating a slideshow or screensaver. Or find inspiration in your own work! With up to 1000GB of pictures all in one place, easily search and find your photos anytime you want.

Out of the box and ready to go

Whether you are new to Flickr, or a long-time community member, we invite you to try our new Flickr experience on the big screen. You can immediately enjoy these features by turning on your Apple TV or signing in for a personalized experience. If you have any feedback, please let us know on Flickr Ideas.
