HTC 10 Has Native AirPlay Audio Streaming Support

By 08:05 Sun, 01 Aug 2021 Comments

The HTC 10 finally became official earlier today, as you may know, following weeks upon weeks of leaks. One thing about the phone that wasn't leaked, though, has to do with Apple's AirPlay.

Specifically, it turns out that the HTC 10 features built-in native support for AirPlay, following in the footsteps of Xiaomi's Android-powered smartphones before it. There's just one gigantic caveat: it's only for audio streaming.

Still, while you're in any music app on the HTC 10, just do a three finger swipe-up gesture to bring up the HTC Connect overlay. Since AirPlay support is built in, the AirPlay devices nearby will be listed and you can connect to them with one tap. This goes for Apple TVs, yes, but also AirPlay-enabled speakers.

Incidentally, HTC Connect also supports other protocols such as Bluetooth, DLNA, and Miracast, but adding AirPlay to the list is quite significant for the Android world, especially since Xiaomi's wares aren't officially srecent in most places. Hopefully more and more device makers will follow suit.
