Now that connect is becoming available it would be nice to be able to connect to multiple outputs at the same time. For example I have 2 connect compatable speakers... it'd be great to have these in different parts of my house and be able to stream the same music to both.
I would suggest a maximum of 3 devices at the same time. This will allow for most scenarios to be catered for without streatching the bandwidth too much that it will degrade quality.
This idea has been set to Not Right Now for quite a while now, so we discussed it again internally as part of our review process and wanted to chime in with an update.
We definitely understand that this is a popular request, look at those votes, wow! This idea has been looked into thoroughly on multiple occasions and while we really would love to do this, due to the complexity it isn't in our timeline at the moment. As a result, we'd like to be clear that this won't be implemented in the near future and will set the idea's Status to closed for now.
This isn't the end though! We set ideas as closed to set expectations and be transparent on our near-term plans. A closed idea can always get reopened, be reconsidered or be right-out implemented. We believe maintaining a tidier list will improve the overview for everyone and improve visibility on what to and not to expect.
We'll keep revisiting this on regular intervals and if we have any new information to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new Status.
Thank you and keep your feedback and ideas coming!
