Any update on Airplay 2 coming to Roku? There were numerous articles about it earlier this month. Anxious for this to be a thing! (also would love to see iTunes come to Roku)

At this time, no Roku supports Air Play. There is talk about support for Air Play 2 coming, but nothing firm has been released yet.

Tanner said to watch the Roku blog, as that place, not here, will be the first source of official information. And that’s absolutely true.

If you’re just wanting rumors, heck, we can make some up. That’ll be about as reliable as anything.

For example, a Google search for “Roku AirPlay 2” gets one that says “Apple’s AirPlay 2 TV integration crashes Roku stock after investors call company ‘uninvestable’” and another that says “Airplay 2 may come to Roku devices, leaving the Apple TV high and dry

As you can see, not a lot of facts, but tons of opinion, often contradictory.

You can ask for rumors, and that’s exactly what you’ll get. Truth takes time, and will go through channels.

I’m curious about it myself. I figure if Facebook isn’t going to release their Facebook watch app on Roku, the best thing that could be done is to enable casting from the Facebook app on iOS. I wouldn’t have to switch devices as often to cover the few events I do that are streamed on Facebook. Would be a major help for me even though I would obviously prefer the standalone app Facebook has for video content to be on Roku, but getting a request into Facebook for it is like trying to get into alcatraz. Hopefully these respective tech giants will figure out a way to coexist where buying multiple devices for different purposes is no longer a necessity.

Airplay with Roku

Jump to solution

Hi

I'ver got the Roku Streaming Stick+ and have added the Apple TV app to my Roku. Everything seems ok, I can sign into my Apple account and play free stuff so there are no issues there. But I've also got an iPad Pro which I would like to AirPlay to my Roku. So any video I'm playing on the iPad will mirror over to Apple TV. Should that be possible? When I try to AirPlay the video the iPad doesn't find/see the Apple TV on my Roku. Any help much appreciated.
