Libratone’s affordable Zipp and Zipp Mini speakers now support AirPlay 2

AirPlay 2 support is now available for Libratone’s Bluetooth
and Wi-Fi speakers, the Zipp and Zipp Mini, the company

announced on Twitter today
.

Apple first announced a
series of third-party devices
designed to work with AirPlay
2 back in May, which included speakers from Sonos and Bang
& Olufsen, alongside Libratone. The Zipp and Zipp Mini run
for $299 and $249, respectively, which is $50 and $100 less,
respectively, than customers would cough up for an Apple
HomePod. The Zipp and Zipp Mini are, however, still more
expensive than
Sonos’ $199 One speaker.

Zipp and Zipp Mini owners can update their speakers for free
through the iOS app, according to Libratone. The company

noted
that AirPlay 2 would not be available on “legacy
speakers like classic Live/Lounge/Zipp/Loop and Diva will not
support AirPlay 2.”

Some Zipp and Zipp Mini users have complained about the update
not appearing in their mobile app. Advice from Libratone’s
Twitter account suggests restarting the app, turning the
speaker off, or trying to log in with another user if this
occurs.
