Apple adds new category for AirPlay 2 receives to HomeKit accessories page

Apple has added a new category for AirPlay 2 Receivers to its Home Accessories page, joining the list of HomeKit-compatible accessories such as lights, switches, thermostats, and door locks. While the list of AirPlay 2 compatible receivers appears to be completely dominated by Denon right now, the list will presumably expand as other manufacturers come on board by adding AirPlay 2 support, either retroactively or to new models. A separate category for AirPlay 2 Speakers was added to the page a few months ago, highlighting products from Bang & Olufsen, Libratone, and Sonos, along with Apple’s own HomePod.[via 9to5Mac]
