Roku In Talks To Support AirPlay 2
However if you are a Roku user and you are hoping that the company will support AirPlay 2, then you might be interested to learn that according to a report from MacRumors, it appears that the company is in talks with Apple to support it. The plans are apparently not finalized yet which means that there is a chance that it could fall through, so don’t get your hopes up just yet.
However if it does go through, it is expected to be made available through a Roku OS update where in theory it should apply to a wide variety of devices. The report also claims that this partnership could extend to Apple Music where Roku OS could come with its own Apple Music app, making it available alongside other music streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, and Amazon Music.
Roku has yet to officially confirm anything yet, but they were previously asked about it in which they did not explicitly deny that they were in talks with Apple, but instead said, “we don’t have anything to share regarding this now.”
