- LG has announced new sound bars with AirPlay 2 support.
- The new soundbars also support Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
LG has announced a new range of sound bars for 2021 with support for AirPlay 2 and more. The new sound bars also include support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, too.
The addition of AirPlay 2 support means users can take advantage of multi-room support when listening to audio, while a reduced latency is a big deal as well.
You can read all about the various sound bars on offer in LG's press release. Note that only three of the new releases support AirPlay 2, though. They do all support Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound at, however.
Anyone picking one of these things up could do worse than bag another AirPlay 2 speaker to go with it, too.
