Bluesound cannot add Airplay 2 until Apple release it, currently still in Beta with Apple.

Still no album total time
Still no technical details of what you are listening to
One hour song still shows as 0:01
On ipad Help/diagnostics that's where it ends, the "more" button died
The "volume" splash screen still shows when switching between apps

But something must have improved.

Ah... I found something that "improved". The number of glitches and dropouts has gone up.
Both in 44.1 and in high res.

Hi,
Airplay 2 will be released in a couple of days (maybe even tomorrow).
iOS 11.4 is really around the corner, because Apple 2018 WWDC starts in 6 days. And they have to release 11.4 before WWDC.
Bluesound had months to be prepared for it.

I am wondering what's the ETA for Airplay 2 for BluOS ?

Same here!!
Bought a Pulse Flex to try the Bluesound eco-system with Tidal (and am very pleased); but AirPlay-support will be the icing on the cake for me, and absolutely essential for my family.

Also, I would really urge Bluesound's team to review their policy of not stating which products might get AirPlay 2 support. I ended up just buying the Flex, but might have gone for another speaker with more information available. Claiming that Apple requieres Bluesound to be 'tight-lipped' about it when other manufacturers (Libratone, Sonos and B&O come to mind) have clarified this sounds like a lame excuse.

I understand Bluesound doesn't want to promise and commit to things they can't deliver - but sometimes a timely update on what can be expected (like Sonos did) makes it easier for potential costumers to make informed choices.

Bluesound is not Apples list unfortunately. Some clarification from bluesound would be most welcome.
