Supported Apps for an Enhanced Experience With Airfoil for Windows

Remote control and enhanced metadata with supported sources



Airfoil for Windows can stream audio from just about any application running on your Windows machine. With a number of popular audio applications, an enhanced experience offering metadata and remote control is provided.

These Windows applications offer an enhanced experience with Airfoil:

We hope to add more supported sources, but we need help from developers to make their audio applications scriptable. See Supporting Additional Apps for more details!

An Enhanced Audio Receiving Experience

When you stream audio from supported sources through Airfoil Speakers, an Apple TV, or many third-party AirPlay devices, you'll see enhanced metadata, including track titles and album artwork. These outputs will also be able to remotely control audio playback in the source application.

Airfoil Remote, Too

Airfoil Remote is an iOS remote control for Airfoil for Windows and Airfoil for Mac. It allows you to toggle speakers on and off, adjust volumes, and even switch the source from which Airfoil is capturing audio. When Airfoil is streaming audio from one of its supported sources, Airfoil Remote will show enhanced metadata, including track titles and album artwork. It will also be able to remotely control audio playback in the source application.
