How to use AirPlay 2 with iPhone, iPad, Mac and HomePod

A couple of days ago Apple officially released iOS 11.4 for all compatible devices. It is a great update that came with two important news that had long been announced and Apple had delayed .

One of them is AirPlay 2. Basically with AirPlay 2 you can connect your devices to several speakers at the same time. So you could listen to music throughout your house or synchronize two that you have in the same room . The list of compatible speakers is very long and today we are going to tell you how to use AirPlay 2.

But AirPlay 2 also brings other important news. Now the substantially larger streaming buffer, which helps reduce interruptions due to network problems. In addition Siri now takes center stage. You can ask Siri for something on your iPhone while the music is still playing on the speaker . One of the things you can ask him to do is change the music in the room and he will do it without problems.

How to use AirPlay 2 from iPhone, iPad, Mac and HomePod
Using AirPlay 2 is as simple as AirPlay was. From our iPhone or iPad we do it from the control center . In the music widget we keep pressed or press hard. Now click on the AirPlay icon on the top right and select the device where you want it to play.

Devices that have a circle on the right are compatible with AirPlay 2 . The Apple TV 4 and 4K is compatible with AirPlay 2, so we can play music through the TV speakers or those connected to an Apple player. If we have a HomePod it will appear in the list with the name of the room in which it is.

From the Mac we will have to press the sound icon of the status bar . If it does not appear, we activate it from system preferences. There we will get the compatible speakers. Another option is from iTunes, in the top bar appears an icon and AirPlay as the iOS, by clicking it we will see the available speakers.

Something interesting is that we can play any song or video on an AirPlay 2 speaker from any application we have . It does not matter if we use Apple Music, Spotify or YouTube.

What do you get AirPlay 2, do you have compatible speakers?
