APPLE AIRPLAY 2 ARRIVES TO BLUESOUND PLAYERS

Apple AirPlay 2 Arrives to Bluesound on December 11th enabling Bluesound's Generation 2i Players to be now certified for Apple's AirPlay 2 technology.

Following our recent review of the Bluesound Node2i the Canadian digital audio company has announced that all Generation 2i streaming music players will receive the much-anticipated software update that will enable Apple AirPlay 2.

On December 11th, all Bluesound customers will be prompted to update their players to the latest version of BluOS, Bluesound's award-winning, proprietary hi-res multiroom platform.

For customers with Bluesound's newest Generation 2i players, the software update will enable AirPlay 2. Gen 2i users can then stream music services, podcasts, audiobooks, movies, games, YouTube audio, TV sound and stored music from their iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer to any Bluesound Gen 2i player on the same WiFi network.

The integration also gives Apple Music listeners the ability to control playback on their Bluesound Gen 2i using Siri voice control.

The good news continues for Bluesound Gen 2i users with older Bluesound products in their home network. Using the BluOS Controller app, the previous generation Bluesound players can be grouped with a new Gen 2i unit, allowing them to play the same AirPlay 2 streamed content.
