With iOS9, can you play music to multiple AirPlay sources at the same time?

    That hasn't changed. Still only one at a time.

    At least it's cheaper.

    I don't think this is right. You can have Airport Expresses all around the place and they will even compensate for lag to play the music in sync.

    Here's an app if you don't have a computer to run iTunes:

    Thanks for that link. Interesting product for sure! The fact that it doesn't work with Pandora or Apple Music kinda makes it a no-go for my mom, though...

    The Mac can definitely but iOS cannot natively. In my opinion multi-room AirPlay streaming from the Mac is not a great solution. It ends up cutting out quite a bit.

    Just checked the link. Interesting. Though if it doesn't work with Apple Music that's a huge negative.
