Why No Airplay 2 Audio Out

Was really excited for Airplay 2 on Roku so that my tv could take advantage of the various airplay speakers in my setup.  Very disappointed to learn that audio output is not a feature provided.  Is there a plan to have audio output from Roku to airplay speakers?

Thanks for the reply. Is this a limitation from Roku or from Apple. Was really excited about it as I like the Roku platform but unfortunately I guess I’ll be hooking up an AppleTV and bypassing Roku.

Still would be interested to know if Apple limits audio out on Airplay 2 or if this limitation has to do with the way Roku implemented.

I was about to purchase a roku TV, but if I can't select my airplay speakers for audio out, I won't be purchasing.

Re: Why No Airplay 2 Audio Out

The fact that Roku hasn’t made a comment on this being an Apple imposed limitation leads me to believe that Roku has chosen not to implement audio out.  Seems like if a feature is limited then the Airplay branding should have an * with a footnote informing customers of limitations so we can make an informed decision.
