Thanks to support for AirPlay 2 the aforementioned speakers and audio systems can be used in a multiroom system. All AirPlay 2 systems can be controlled via an iPad, iPhone or Mac, and you can connect different systems to create a multiroom system. In addition, there is integration of Siri so that you can play music on a specific speaker or in a specific room by means of a voice command. When you add an Apple HomePod to the system, you can also control everything with voice without having an iPhone, iPad or Mac at hand.
