AirPlay works across multiple Macs on MacOS Monterey

AirPlay for Mac was one of the big features announced at MacOS Monterey, but we’ve made it even clearer how to use AirPlay across multiple Macs.

As confirmed by MacRumorsWe now know for sure that AirPlaying content from another Mac to a Mac is possible either wirelessly or via a USB cable. The latter keeps the user on the wire, but guarantees a delay-free, stutter-free connection. It is also especially useful in situations where you do not have access to the internet.

Is Main features recently released Users can extend or duplicate the display on one Mac to another Mac. MacRumors has tested this feature and can verify its claims. You can connect your Mac to another Mac via a wireless or wired connection and use it as an external display. This means that Apple has almost returned to its original state. Target display mode functionThrough this, Mac users can use the iMac as a display for another Mac. This feature was seen on Apple’s 2009-2014 iMac models and, like the new features in MacOS Monterey, allows AirPlay from other Macs wirelessly or with a USB cable.

However, it is important to note that there are also important differences between the two. The new mirroring feature is not exactly the same as the target view mode feature in terms of compression and delay. Theoretically, this new feature compresses video, and despite the company’s claim of zero latency, there can still be some delay.

Apart from AirPlaying visual content from Apple devices to Macs, this new feature also allows supported Macs to act as speaker sources. Users can now stream selected audio from their Apple device to their Mac. You can also use your Mac as an additional speaker for multi-room audio.

The latest features of Mac OS are also flexible and compatible. Works with 2018 or later MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, 2019 or later iMac or Mac Pro, and 2020 Mac mini. It is currently in beta for developers only and will be open to the public in July. Sometime between September and November, a software update for all compatible Macs will be released.
