All owners of Bluesound Generation 2i Players can now update to Apple AirPlay2 thanks to a software update, enabling owners to stream audio to their player from an iPhone, iPad or Mac.

‘If owners simply follow the update prompts to update to the latest version of BluOS, Bluesound’s award-winning, proprietary hi-res multiroom platform, that will enable AirPlay2 after which they’ll be able to stream music services, podcasts, audiobooks, movies, games, YouTube audio, TV sound and stored music from their iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer,’ said Geoff Matthews, of Convoy International, which distributes Bluesound in Australia. ‘It also gives Apple Music listeners the ability to control playback on their Bluesound Gen 2i using Siri voice control.’

There’s also good news for owners of older-generation Bluesound products. If they add in a Bluesound Gen 2i product to their home network and group in their old units, they will also be able to play back the same AirPlay2 streamed content. ‘With AirPlay2, Bluesound Gen 2i has become the ideal solution for Apple users looking for premium sound quality and seamless multi-room convenience,’ Matthews told Australian Hi-Fi Magazine.
