Based on the release schedule, the company expects that the rollout of AirPlay 2 support will take place in the next 6 weeks or so. This is also expected to cover 10 existing speakers which will come in the form of a free OTA update. This includes the Beoplay M3, Beosound Shape, Beosound 1 (1st gen), Beosound 2 (1st gen), Beoplay A9, and also the recently announced Beosound Edge.
According to the company’s announcement, the rollout was meant to be done earlier but due to quality issues, they decided to delay it. “We did communicate that we would have the AirPlay 2 integration ready by September. However, we have concluded that the integration into our products wasn’t not good enough, so we have decided to do a step by step release over the coming months to ensure a strong customer experience.”
