Apple releases tvOS 11.4 with AirPlay 2 for 4th and 5th gen. Apple TV models

Apple today released tvOS 11.4, the fourth major update to the tvOS operating system designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models.

tvOS 11.4 can be downloaded over the air through the Settings app on the Apple TV by going to System –> Software Update. Apple TV owners who have automatic software updates turned on will be upgraded to tvOS 11.4 automatically.

“The tvOS 11.4 update, paired with iOS 11.4, introduces support for AirPlay 2 functionality. AirPlay 2 is designed to bring multi-room audio to the Apple ecosystem, allowing the same music to be played on multiple devices throughout the home,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors. “tvOS 11.4 turns the Apple TV into an AirPlay 2-compatible device that’s listed in the Home app for HomeKit devices.”
