Golden Girls Randomizer (Disney+)

Plays a random episode of Golden Girls on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple TV


Golden Girls Randomizer

Disney+ is the exclusive home for streaming all Episodes of Golden Girls. There are all 7 seasons available in Germany (and some other countries except US). Unfortunately Disney+ forgot to offer a random episode option.

That's why I built this shortcut which chooses a random Golden Girls episode and plays it either on your iOS device or even on your AppleTV.

Upon installation the shortcut also asks for your desired target device where you want to watch. Besides watching on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch it's possible to choose your Apple TV here as well! In this case your iOS device will AirPlay the episode to your Apple TV automatically.

Of course you can change your output later by editing the Shortcut. You can also build an automation, e.g. NFC-triggered which just runs this shortcut. You can also use a Siri phrase to run it. Since iOS 13 Siri is using the name of the shortcut for that. So you could rename it and say: „Hey Siri, what‘s going on in St. Olaf“? Siri will read the chosen episode.

Preconditions: You need an active Disney+ subscription and an iOS device with the Disney+ iOS app installed. If you want to use an Apple TV please make sure to install the Disney+ app there as well.

The output is in german (for now). There will be an english one in a few weeks.
