Re: SA-5 & AirPlay 2

Hello Tohuwabohu,

 

Thank you for the question. 

 

Apple Music has not been a confirmed music source that will be available for SoundTouch. If there is any new information on additional music services, we will let the community know.

 

Regards,

Joel

Re: SA-5 & AirPlay 2

Hello Nastra,

 

Thank you for posting.

 

The reason being for the Series 1 and 2 SoundTouch system not being available for the update is a limitation of hardware. If there is any new updates, we will absolutely let the community know.

 

Regards,

Joel

Re: SA-5 & AirPlay 2

Hello Joel, 

 

After reading your reply I have an add. question. I'm also owner of a cinemate (with ST capabilities: wifi & Bluetooth). Can/will this system also receive a retrofit for Airplay 2 compatibility?

 

Thank you for your info,

 

Brgds,

Re: SA-5 & AirPlay 2

Hello Silla,

 

That is correct, your product has Bluetooth capabilities so it will be included for the Airplay 2 implementation.

 

Warm Regards,

Joel

Re: SA-5 & AirPlay 2

Hello Joel,

The result is that I can group the Amplifier and cinemate by using the iOS control panel? And the Bose 500 can be added to the group while using Airplay 2. So both ecosystems can play together?

Thx for your feedback,

Silla

Hello Silla,

 

From the available information regarding Airplay 2, it appears that you can group speakers using the iOS control panel. That being said, we won't know for sure until we can test which we'll be able to do once the update is released for the new products. Stay tuned!!

Re: SA-5 & AirPlay 2

I saw a respose form Greg_B that Bose will support Airplay 2, with a free update in 2019... I guess, they are still working on the tech.

 

@Greg_B are you able confirm any timings around the 2019 date for Airplay 2?

 

Many thansk in advance.

 

Regards,
Emil

Re: SA-5 & AirPlay 2

Hi Emiljones,

 

We can't confirm specific dates for Airplay 2 availability, except that it should be available in early 2019.

 

We'll update the Community when it's available.
