This is interesting news since Samsung was the first to announce the availability of these functions on its televisions. A few minutes after the news was released at CES in Las Vegas, other brands did the same by announcing the arrival of AirPlay 2 and HomeKit to their smart TV.
In this case it is necessary to highlight several things and the first one is that LG Koreans have an indispensable requirement for the arrival of these options to be met is that are televisions manufactured this year. So only the models that the company presented this year 2019 will be able to be used with AirPlay 2 and HomeKit.
LG has a large catalog of products available and among them we find smartphones, washing machines, refrigerators and all kinds of appliances and yesterday they announced on their official Twitter account about the arrival of these options to their televisions during the next week:
Homekit is releasing in 1 week. Users require iOS 12.4 update to do Airplay2.LGA
– LG Australia (@LG_Australia) July 23, 2019
In the list of devices compatible with HomeKit and AirPlay 2 published by Apple this year we find several LG models:
- LG OLED (2019)
- LG NanoCell SM9X series (2019)
- LG NanoCell SM8X series (2019)
- LG UHD UM7X series (2019)
It is expected that this implementation will begin with the country in charge of announcing its launch, Australia, and continue with the rest of the countries over the next few weeks. At the moment we have no recent news about his arrival in our country, so it will continue to wait until officially pronounced as they have done in Australia.
