tvOS 14.2 brings Apple TV closer to HomePod: home cinema, game...

tvOS 14.2 will bring a nice little treat to video game enthusiasts… as long as they have a HomePod. The future update will indeed allow games to broadcast their soundtrack on the speaker (or pair of speakers) connected to Apple TV. Currently, game sound is only output through the TV speakers, even when the box is paired with a HomePod.

If this novelty does not concern a priori than Apple TV 4K, however all games distributed on the App Store and Apple Arcade are compatible. It will be necessary to check if the function is supported by AirPlay 2 speakers. To avoid latency problems, remember that there is a calibration setting for wireless audio, in tvOS preferences -> Video and audio > Wireless audio sync.

The future update of tvOS, currently in its beta 3, will bring several other novelties, starting with the new “home cinema” function intended for the Apple TV 4K and the HomePod (2018), which will allow the speaker to type in 5.1, 7.1 surround and even Dolby Atmos information from TV content in order to deliver an even more immersive sound “experience”. Note that the HomePod mini will not benefit from this function.

Several developers also had the (good) surprise to be offered the continuous pairing of their Apple TV with the HomePod, the latter becoming a permanent TV speaker. It is of course possible to broadcast the audio of a TV program on a HomePod thanks to AirPlay 2, but the permanence of the link between the speaker and the box is very relative, it must be regularly reactivated in the audio settings.
