Just Checking in with your progress with integrating Apple Music (natively).
By this I mean not casting from Apple devices using wired Bluetooth or other external means but by logging into Apple Music from my Bluesound devices as I could another Music service like Spotify Deezer etc.. And indeed as it is possible from Sonos kit.
There are several threads where this is discussed and some of your answers indicate that this will only be possible when Apple allow and that this will most likely be when Airplay 2 is introduced.
So last night I installed iOS 11.4 (which stated it includes Airplay2), on my iPhone and a Bluesound update immediately became available so I installed this (iOS App 2.16.2 BluOS 2.16.14), on all my Bluesound kit.,
But still no native support...
I love my Bluesound Kit
But I get despondent that it won't natively support Apple Music, I already had an investment with Apple Music when I bought the Bluesound kit, but was re-assured by the message in several threads on this site from Bluesound that as a Premier Airplay2 Apple partner, Airplay2 would allow Bluesound to integrate natively with Apple Music. Its here now, ( Airplay2, at least thats what Apple lead us to believe), and no Native integration.
So my questions are:
Does Bluesound need to catch up with Apple or is this release of iOS in some way incomplete regarding Airplay2 and Apple,e need to do more work?
Will Bluesound ever natively integrate with Apple Music?
How is it possible that Sonos can already natively integrate with Apple Music, and if they can why can't Bluesound?
I am sure many of your customers, (and potential customers), have the same concerns, and probably you yourselves are fed up with people like me badgering you about this subject.
And whilst appreciating you must operate under various industry and Bluesound/Apple non regulatory of commercial confidentiality agreements, some sort of re-assurance regarding implementation, and timescales would be re-assuring from a customer perspective.
