Apple today officially released iOS 11.4 to the public.

For iOS users, the software update finally adds the long-awaited Messages in iCloud feature, which syncs your iMessages across all of your Apple devices. iOS 11.4 also brings stereo pairing support for HomePod and AirPlay 2 for compatible devices. Plus, adding AirPlay 2 support for the HomePod should be a welcomed new addition as well.

Apple has released iOS 11.4 today, which includes a couple of desired features in AirPlay 2 and Messages in iCloud.

Messages in iCloud is coming with iOS 11.4 as well. And it also works with SMS across devices.

Getting the iOS 11.4 update is simple enough.

The new update also introduces Messages in iCloud, which means that messaging history is now synced across a user's devices.

Editors' note: This story was originally published at 10:01 a.m. PT. It will show up on newly configured devices, and deleting messages and conversations on one device will also have those changes be reflected in others.

Music can originate from either an iOS device or from the Wi-Ficonnected HomePods themselves. Alternatively, you can go to your account from Settings and then move to iCloud to enable the Messages option. Users can also now ask Siri to play music in any room or group of rooms using AirPlay 2, and music can be streamed throughout the house without any need to manually group speakers. Any messages you sent or received on your iPhone would be nearly instantly synced to your Mac and iPad. You can leverage the new development and store all your messages, photos, and other attachments received through the Messages app directly on iCloud. You can see all your Messages on different devices logged in with the same Apple ID.

Once paired, the speakers rely on the A8 chip to sync and split the left and right stereo channels between the two devices. This helps to save some local storage space on your devices.

But when we reviewed the £319 HomePod, we stated that most of its teething problems could be fixed, in particular the lack of stereo pairing and potential benefits of AirPlay 2.

Stereo pairing allows you to play through HomePods simultaneously. Scroll down to the list of apps with iCloud support and toggle on Messages.
