    Is airplay 2 enabled yet?

    I want to stream to multiple Apple TVs. I updated my software but no dice. Is it correct it’s not enabled?

    I have this feeling Apple will refuse to release airplay 2 until HomePods are ready to ship.

    What device do you have with Airplay 2? I don’t know of any on market.

    IFAIK HomePod, will be the first, and its not available yet.

    From what I could gather from the web, most likely in December.

    I thought I would be able to use two Apple TVs to output to two digital audio speaker sets.

    I don’t think that’s how it works. You can control multiple Airplay 2 speakers at once, not send audio to two Apple TVs at once. AirPlay 2 does what iTunes can already do, just on an iPhone.

    I could be wrong, but I haven’t seen otherwise.

    Are you sure about that? I was fairly sure iTunes could do that.. I’ll try when I’m home later.

    I have three Apple TVs in my house. When I start playing on one, and then attempt to add the "check" next to the second one, playback stops on the first.

    Maybe its a bug? But it has never worked for me.

    There are two tabs on Airplay on iTunes. One for a single device and one for multi. You're just on the wrong one.

    Eh? There is only one Airplay section in iTunes. I can select an Apple TV and Airport Express, I cannot select both Apple TVs.

    That functionality will be expanded to iPad and iPhone with air play 2.

    It’s already on iOS. The receiving speaker needs to have AirPlay 2 and so far there aren’t any, other than AppleTVs on a tvOS beta.

    My Apple TVs are update and don’t have the functionality. Are you sure it’s on in the beta? Maybe I will upgrade
