Apple has just released an update to the AirPort Express, which adds support for AirPlay 2 and the Home app.
If the Wi-Fi hotspot was approached to be abandoned, the Californian firm decided otherwise. Indeed, it is now possible, thanks to version 7.8 to add AirPort Express to the Home app and then take advantage of AirPlay 2, which, let us remember, is also used on the HomePod.
For the record, AirPlay 2 allows you to synchronize several speakers to listen to a song simultaneously. This new standard was introduced only a few months ago.
