AirPlay support comes to older HTC flagships courtesy of HTC Connect

The HTC Connect app is set to bring one of the HTC 10's most interesting features to the flagship's older siblings: native AirPlay support. Through the updated HTC Connect app, which allows wireless streaming from your phone to a number of other devices, the HTC One M7, M8 and M9 will all support Apple's AirPlay protocol.

As Apple fans are aware, AirPlay support will allow older HTC flagships to push audio and video to other devices that support the protocol. If you have an Apple TV in your home, for example, you'll be able to push video or apps to your TV screen. And if you have AirPlay-enabled speakers, you can of course wirelessly pump your favorite jams as well.

While AirPlay support may not appeal to everyone rocking an Android handset, it's always good to see more standards supported rather than less.
