Bang & Olufsen: AirPlay 2 compatible speakers on CES 2018. The electronics manufacturer from Denmark finally announced details in Las Vegas for future support of Apple's AirPlay-2 technology. The technology cooperation was already known in the summer of 2017 as part of the WWDC. Since then, however, there has been no new information for customers and media representatives. The nice thing: 10 products already available on the market are updated by software update.
Finally, Bang & Olufsen, casually worded, gives butter to the fish, and since last summer we know that the manufacturer is one of Apple's premium partners when it comes to AirPlay 2.
New details on AirPlay 2 at Bang & Olufsen
Since then, however, there have been no further details as to what this cooperation looks like, let alone what products would be compatible Even on demand (we tried it) gave Apple's premium partners no information. It is quite possible that Apple was the reason for that. The manufacturer from Cupertino has also postponed its own AirPlay 2 HomePod speaker and did not want to release it before the end of 2017 (now early 2018).

From then you can also address the speakers for multi-channel sound through your iPhone or iPad, but also the Apple TV. You can also control multiple devices simultaneously.
