And the year has started with a bang as Apple’s AirPlay 2 will now be available across Sony smart TVs. Sony TVs run Android TV software, it is soon going to be capable of playing content — music, movies and even screen mirroring via AirPlay2. A9G OLED 4K and Z9G 8K LCD models are all set to receive the AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support.
Talking about this feature, Sony commented: “Sony Z9G Series, A9G Series, X950G Series TVs will be compatible with Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. AirPlay 2 lets you effortlessly stream content from your iPhone, iPad and Mac right to your Sony TV. Watch movies and TV shows from iTunes and your other video apps, and view photos directly on your Sony TV. Listen to Apple Music, your iTunes music library, podcasts and your other music services on your television and AirPlay 2 speakers throughout the home — all in sync. HomeKit lets you easily and securely control smart home products using the Home app or by asking Siri on your Apple devices. These TVs can be added to the Home app and included in scenes or automations with other HomeKit accessories. For example, users can create a “Movie Night” scene in the Home app to easily turn on their TV and dim the lights, and simply ask Siri to launch the scene. AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support will launch in Z9G Series, A9G Series, X950G Series later this year.”
