I kind of wish Apple would acquire Plume or Eero, but whatevs. There are good options now, and mesh can extend your home network range without cutting the speed in half with every hop.

I would think Apple could take a huge chunk of this market. I have an AirPort Extreme and it’s the best WiFi router I have ever owned.
And even so, they could upgrade the existing AirPort Express to AirPlay 2 - giving their most loyal customers something that no other vendor supports: a realiable wireless audio feed that can be connected to practically any receiver in existence via a TOSLink cable...

Before Apple Music ever existed I kept wanting to try Spotify, but never did, because it required Adobe Flash to run on the Mac, which I had gotten rid of a long time ago due to security and horrible Flash based web advertising. Now that Flash has officially been discontinued I'm guessing they've finally figured out how to support a Flash free Mac/PC version of Spotify (have they?). So, yes, I ended up getting Apple Music instead of Spotify, because it actually does work everywhere. That and it had a wide music video selection which Spotify didn’t (has that changed?). And to this day Spotify doesn’t support AppleTV (which I use for Apple Music constantly). So no, Spotify doesn’t come remotely close to working “everywhere”
