Send any audio from your Mac to AirPort Express units, Apple TVs, iPhones and iPods Touch, and even other Macs and PCs, all in sync! Use Airfoil with web-based audio like Pandora, music services like Spotify, Rdio, MOG, and WiMP, or any other audio playing on your computer. Airfoil for Mac gives you your audio on AirPlay devices all around the house.
What’s New in Version 5: • Bluetooth Devices – Airfoil now works with the thousands of different Bluetooth speakers, headphones, and headsets available. With Airfoil 5, you can stream a single application’s audio to a Bluetooth device (or even multiple Bluetooth devices!), and keep the rest of your audio on your Mac. • Airfoil Satellite – Airfoil for Mac 5.0 includes full compatibility with the new Airfoil Satellite applications, available for iOS, Mac and Windows. If you want to hear your Mac’s audio on another Mac, Windows machine, or iOS device, just run the free Airfoil Satellite there. Airfoil will see it and enable you to send audio to it! Airfoil Satellite also offers remote control of both supported source applications, as well as Airfoil itself. Now you can control playback, toggle outputs off and on, and much more, all remotely. • Speaker Groups – A group is a collection of multiple speakers which appears as one in Airfoil’s main window. Use a Group to send audio to multiple outputs with a single click. Create one group for all the speakers in your house, or divide your speakers into zones. Now you can send audio exactly where you want even faster. • Silence Monitor – Great for workplace or shared home setups, the new silence monitor allows Airfoil to automatically disconnect itself when it’s streaming silence. The output device is then be freed up for others to use. • Custom Equalizer Presets – Adjust the equalizer to your liking, then save it in the Preset menu. Now you’ll be able to access those exact settings any time you like. • Hide Speakers – If you regularly connect to a shared network which contains devices you don’t control, you may wish to hide them entirely from Airfoil. Now you can do so, from the “Advanced Speaker Options” window. • Adjust Sync – Airfoil automatically keeps all outputs completely in sync. However, there may be rare situations where you wish to adjust this, such as when an output is connected to a receiver which adds its own latency. The new Sync sliders in the “Advanced Speaker Options” window make this possible. • Beautifully Refined Interface – Airfoil for Mac and Airfoil Satellite for Mac have both been improved, all without changing too much. The interface will still be familiar to users of older versions of Airfoil, but it also features many improvements. There are improvements like longer volume sliders in Airfoil’s main window, as well as beautiful new graphics that are fully updated for Retina displays. Meanwhile Airfoil Satellite has been updated to include the new controls for controlling Airfoil, while retaining all that the previous “Airfoil Speakers” application offered.
• It’s now possible to clear Recent Applications from the Airfoil Source selector, which will make a small group of users very happy.
•Major Enhancement: Airfoil now offers full compatibility with Apple’s new HomePod, enabling you to send any audio to the device. Airfoil can also handle volume and playback commands sent by the HomePod, with playback commands passed on to supported audio sources.
•Major Enhancement: Downcast for Mac is now supported for enhanced metadata and remote control. As well, an enhanced experience will be provided when using BeardedSpice with supported sites in Safari, Chrome, or Vivaldi.
•Enhancement: Track title support has been updated to support all versions of Djay Pro 2, including Mac App Store downloads.
•Enhancement: Entries in the passcode field, used for Apple TV access, are no longer needlessly bullet-obscured.
•Bug Fix: Airfoil now correctly identifies an improperly configured HomePod (which reports error 400), and will instruct how to adjust settings to enable connections.
•Other: Airfoil now clears its Keychain items (used for password-protected speakers) when performing a Factory Reset.
