Bose brings AirPlay 2 support to its Alexa-enabled smart speakers
Bose announced last week that owners of its smart speakers will be able to enjoy AirPlay 2 support after the last update is installed. This is quite unexpected considering that Bose's products weren't among the third-party AirPlay 2 speakers list published by Apple.

In any case, if you own a Bose Home Speaker 500 and installed the latest firmware update, which is deployed OTA (over the air) automatically, you'll benefit from AirPlay 2 support. Besides smart speakers, Bose confirmed Soundbar 500 and Soundbar 700 are getting the same improvement as well.

With AirPlay 2 support, those who own an Apple device will be able to stream music, podcasts and audio to the Bose products mentioned above, including Apple Music.

Last but not least, Bose announced that it's working hard to bring AirPlay 2 support to SoundTouch customers, although the US company didn't offer a timeline for the release. Well, if you own a SoundTouch speaker, at least you now know that something nice will come to you at some point.
