Roku maybe adding AirPlay 2 support to their hardware soon

Roku is reportedly in talks with Apple to add AirPlay 2 support to their hardware lineup. The two companies are currently working out the details surrounding the partnership, according to a source familiar with the matter. The plans are apparently not finalized and could change.

The AirPlay 2 support will likely arrive in the form of a Roku OS update for Roku media players, which can be used with virtually any smart TV. The software update could also be extended to smart TVs with Roku OS preinstalled, which include select models from Sharp, TCL, Insignia, Hisense, Sanyo, and RCA. It's not clear software update might be released or if it will be limited to select Roku players and TVs.

With AirPlay 2 support, Roku users would be able to stream video, audio, photos, and more directly from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to their smart TVs.

Last month, Apple announced that select AirPlay 2-enabled smart TVs are coming from leading brands such as Samsung, LG, and Sony.
