Airfoil 5.7

With Airfoil 5.7, Rogue Amoeba adds full support for sending audio from any Mac source to Apple’s new HomePod (see “HomePod First Impressions: Let the (Apple) Music Play,” 12 February 2018). Airfoil can also handle volume and playback commands sent by the HomePod, with playback commands passed on to supported Mac audio sources, including Spotify and iTunes. The wireless audio broadcasting app also adds support for enhanced metadata and remote control with Downcast on the Mac, adds title track support to djay Pro 2, stops obscuring entries in the passcode field used for the Apple TV, and clears keychain items when performing a factory reset. ($29 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 14.2 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
