Roon 2.0.37 and ARC 1.0.54 are live!

Our newest software update is guaranteed to be music to your ears: AirPlay 2 streaming support has officially landed in Roon!

Since Roon’s earliest days, our mission has been to seamlessly integrate with as many devices as possible. This is why “Roon works with all your gear” is one of our most enduring slogans and a guiding principle that underpins everything we do.

We fully understand the flexibility, ease, and simplicity that convenience streaming formats bring to your systems, and AirPlay 2 is synonymous with the most popular network receivers, streamers, and wireless speakers on the market.

Over 10% of Roon listeners own HomePods, and starting today you can enjoy them with Roon as stereo pairs or in a hybrid array, maybe with an Apple TV. Simply create a stereo pair using the Home app, and Roon will treat them as a single stereo device.

You can also group HomePods with other AirPlay 2 or AirPlay 1 devices. And all your first-generation AirPlay devices will continue to work with Roon as well. This update is about expanding your options, not replacing them.
