Airplay 2 on Soundtouch 300??

I heard today that Airplay 2 was made available on Bose Smart Speakers today. Good to hear that! Finally something. But when is it releasing for Soundtouch devices? In fact, I was expecting it to be released on Soundtouch first as Smart Home speakers were just recently released, whereas Soundtouch users have been waiting for ages!

This is incredibly disappointing.  AirPlay for SoundTouch was announced in 2017.  Seems like we're on our way to 2 more years of moderators telling us no specific timeline can be provided. 

 

Step #1 to the entire SoundTouch line being pushed into obsolescence.

You also don't seem to have any plans on releasing airplay 2. You said ealy 2019 and that is over. How about doing some thing you guys nver really do and give us an answer. When are you going to release airplat 2?

Sorry, but you don’t understand our frustration about the lack of AirPlay 2 support on SoundTouch speakers. 

 

If you did, Bose would have done something about it a long time ago. 

 

Yamaha announced AirPlay 2 support for 15 home devices today and Bose is once again late to the party.

It's been three months since this reply. Is Aiplay 2 coming anytime soon to the Soundtouch 300?

Well, you just got an indirect update this morning from Bose in the form of another big “F U”. It’s Firmware Update (see what I did there?). But it’s an FU that doesn’t include AirPlay 2.
