Apple are supposedly going to release an update enabling stereo for homepods later this year. But Airplay 2 has been removed from the latest beta of iOS 11.3. In fact apple never said it would come with iOS 11.3 - but many people assumed it would. So it might even come with iOS 12. However you can enable stereo homepods now even without the update. It can be done with a mac or with an iOS device as follows: For a mac you can use Airfoil. For an iOS device you can use a mac, Airfoil and Reflector. There may be other ways to do it too, but this is how I got it to work. First set up Airfoil 1. Download AirFoil from Rogue Amoeba’s website. AirFoil is a paid application at $29 per user. 2. Once you have AirFoil downloaded, copy it to your Application folder. 3. Open it and ensure that all of your AirPlay-enabled devices appear. 4. Choose your audio source. Easiest way is to choose System Audio. Then all sounds from the mac will play. But if you are a bit fussy about mouse clicks not coming through for example you can select specific apps instead which will exclude such noises. 5. Go to your Applications folder on macOS and find the AirFoil app. Right click on that file and choose “Duplicate.” This makes another copy of Airfoil called Airfoil copy. 6. Open Airfoil copy. It will open right over the Airfoil window. Move it away from it. 7. In AirFoil, choose the HomePod that’s on the right side of your configuration. Click the equalizer icon along the top and drag the “Balance” slider all the way to the right side. This will play only the right channel through that HomePod. 8. In AirFoil copy, choose the HomePod that’s on the left side of your configuration. Click the equalizer icon along the top and drag the “Balance” slider all the way to the left side. This will play only the left channel through that HomePod. Now you can run stereo homepods with your mac. Then set up Reflector (if you want to run it from an iOS device) You can get reflector here: http://www.airsquirrels.com/reflector/ Now you can airplay stereo music from your iphone to the homepods - via the mac and the 2 apps airfoil and reflector running simultaneously. I tried this and it works really well. Stereo homepods sounds much better than 1 homepod.
