What is Airfoil for Mac

Airfoil allows you to send any audio to AirPort Express units, Apple TVs, and even other Macs and PCs, all in sync! It's your audio - everywhere.

With Airfoil you can take audio from any application and send to your AirPort Express units, as well as Apple TVs, and even other Macs and PCs running Airfoil Speakers! Transmit audio from RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, and other media players. Send audio from web-based applications like Pandora, Last.fm, and other to the AirPort Express. You can even stream audio from audio devices like RadioSHARK, XM and Sirius radios, around your house.

What's new in Airfoil

Version 5.10.5:
  • Initial MacOS 12 (Monterey) Compatibility. Airfoil now has initial compatibility with MacOS 12 (Monterey), with no major issues. Additional updates are in progress.
  • New "Sound Effects" Special Source. A new "Sound Effects" special source has been added, making it possible to capture sound effects like alerts in the Messages app, or the Trash being emptied.
  • New "AirPlay Receiver" Special Source. A new "AirPlay Receiver" special source has been added on Monterey, making it possible to capture audio sent to the Mac via AirPlay. That said, for the best compatibility, we recommend using Airfoil Satellite as your audio receiver on the Mac
  • Updates to ACE 11.7.6. The Audio Capture Engine (ACE) has been updated to 11.7.6, with small improvements for MacOS 12 (Monterey), as well as a fix for capture issue with Catalyst-based (and AVFoundation-based) apps.
  • The "Application block's source selector now better handles iOS apps running on M1 Macs, avoiding duplicating them in the list.
  • Handling for built-in EQ effects has been improved in cases where invalid data is provided from an audio source.
  • Sample rate matching (clock synchronization) for audio devices has been improved.
  • Airfoil now requires MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) or higher. If you're still on 10.13 (or lower), be sure to see our Legacy page.

I bought two speakers, controlled from my Mac computer. One of the speakers keeps regularly cutting out, on average about once every 10-15 minutes. My retailer is helping me try and sort out this problem.

Did not work. Also, it kept muting the sound of my browser. Fits very well, to throw in the trash can.

Airfoil is the central audio management solution of my complex media center system based on a Mac Mini and many iDevices. And since it's NOT subscription based I highly recommend Airfoil for similar setups.

Very good app. I use this every day to stream to multiple Airplay speakers around my house. Apple only provide this functionality in iTunes, and even then they don't implement it as well as Airfoil does. I occasionally notice a slight loss of sync between speakers. Not sure if this is an Airfoil or Airplay problem, though.

Is Airfoil for Mac able to stream to the USB port AND airplay the same time?

My situation is a bit different but probably worth mentioning. I have hearing aids. They're able to bluetooth directly to my iPhone, which is nice, but I wanted to connect them directly to my MB Pro. But there's no application interface by the hearing aid manufacturer that will let me do this. Instead, they want to sell me a $500 device that will run from the laptop headphone port to their device, and then the aids bluetooth to that device. As I was doing a ton of research on how to avoid that $500 expense, I ran across a mention of AirFoil. I already had a license for AudioHijack, so I trusted this manufacturer. (There are some other apps or software that claim to do some of what AirFoil does, but they were nowhere near as user friendly.) Indeed, AirFoil lets me link from my laptop directly to my iPhone, and from there, it bluetooth connects directly to my hearing aids. And for $470 less than I would have had to pay otherwise. Developer: I shall be certain to mention your program to my audiologist. Trust me, they get a lot of business these days.

I have been using Airfoil since the first time it was ever released. I love it and this new update is even better because I have many bluetooth speakers that I use, but my mac is my main entertainment hub, hooked to my tv for a monitor. This is the first time blue tooth connectivity has been offered with airfoil and as much as i like it, it is quite choppy on and off. I am sure it will get fixed but for now it is hard to deal with using. I know it has to be the app, because when i connect natively the speaker works flawlessly and radium connects to multiple speakers better too. When the bluetooth connectivity is better it will be a five star app
