    mpf541, it is scheduled for later this year, however, I would not have the exact date as to when it will be released to the 2019 TVs.

    Surely we can get a definitive answer? You sell the tv with airplay 2 advertised. Samsung already have the Apple TV app and airplay 2!

    Airplay2 will be coming September 31 at exactly 3:42pm EST.

    Not sure what you want for a definitive answer. It isn't like they have it sitting on a floppy disk in a hidden vault somewhere waiting for some magical day to arrive before they release it. They said back in January that Airplay2 (along with several other features) would be coming in a mid-year firmware update, so by that estimate we should be seeing it any time in the next couple months. Though, Korea will certainly get the update before we do. They probably don't know yet when Korea will get it, so they sure don't know when the US will. I am as anxious as anyone else for the new features, but as with any software, it won't be ready until it is ready. If they rush it out the door without full testing, they won't be doing us any favors.

    LG Australia has announced it will be coming there next week. Hopefully we will get it at the same time.

    Airplay 2 will be pushed to the 2019 OLED & NanoCell models starting 7/29/2019. The update for the UHD TVs will happen in October.

    And... Homekit and Airplay 2 will also be coming to the 2018 LG ThinQ tvs, some time after it comes to the 2019 tvs.

    Edit: LG is walking this back and saying now that it might happen, but they currently are not working on it for pre-2019 tvs. So don't get your hopes up.

    My tv updated to the new firmware. I tried to use airplay 2 and my iPad doesn’t recognise the tv. Anyone got it to work?
