Apple also released iOS 11.4 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, along with HomePod 11.4.

AirPlay 2 supports speakers in multiple rooms, and Apple says compatible speakers are coming from Bang & Olufsen, Bluesound, Bose, Bowers & Wilkins, Denon, Libratone, Marantz, Marshall, Naim, Pioneer and Sonos.

With an Apple TV or AirPort Express you can use other speakers, too. You can, for example, play the same music on your HomePod, Apple TV speakers, and speakers connected to an AirPort Express in different rooms without any latency.

Apple TV updates install automatically, but you may have to wait a few days before that happens. To install the tvOS 11.4 update now launch the Settings app on your Apple TV and go to System > Software Updates.
