Coming along with the Home app and Apple TV updates will be the ability to Airplay Dolby Atmos. This will be a welcome update for some who no longer want to fire up an Apple TV 4K and a television to get Dolby Atmos from Apple Music on their iPhone/iPad to their AVP/AVR provided it is a supported third party device. We’ll see.

This the reason they're losing the ability for multi-room options with the Wiims?

I've been reading about Airplay Cast issue with Wiim. Most people on other forums seem to be blaming Wiim. Who's been awfully hush-hush. A lot of threads on the subject have been pulled from their forum. Both very strange. I've seen some Wiim responses posted where Wiim is saying there's "compatibility issues with future Airplay devices."

I'm not convinced Apple didn't throw them a curve ball. Curious to what really happened behind closed doors.

So, running iOS 18 Beta and apparently none of my receivers are "compatible third party audio equipment" and I cannot get Dolby Atmos to them over Airplay. :confused: I also cannot Airplay Dolby Atmos to my Mac mini M1 which is currently in macOS Sequoia Beta 15. Though, as mentioned in another thread, Dolby Atmos Passthrough/Bitstream now works in the Mac when using Apple Music.

I can however Airplay Dolby Atmos from my iPhone to the Apple TV 4K. So, if anybody wants to listen to Apple Music's Dolby Atmos offerings on their Apple TV 4K without firing the television up, they can Airplay them to an Apple TV 4K and use the iPhone to make their selections. If using HDMI-CEC, the Apple TV 4K will power ON a connected AVP/AVR and television set when playback starts.

I could not get Dolby Atmos from Tidal over Airplay to the Apple TV 4K. But, the Apple TV 4K Tidal app does support Dolby Atmos for those that don't mind using the television set when listening to music.
