iOS allows me to connect 2 BT headphones, but Infuse does not allow output to both simultaneously.

Why is this? It's a great thing to be able to watch a movie together with 2 pairs of headphones connected -- like on a plane -- but the app does not seem to allow it.

What type of devices are you using? AirPods, or something else?

I thought it only worked if both headsets contained the W series or H series chips made by Apple.

The iOS 13 page only states this is compatible with AirPods, and it's not clear if it's supposed to work with other devices.

Audio Sharing
Pair two sets of AirPods to one iPhone and enjoy the same song or movie along with a friend. 

* Works with iPhone 8 or later and iPod touch (7th generation) with the latest version of iOS.

Regardless, the choice to connect to multiple headphones is handled through the native AirPlay menu. Are you able to select both of your devices there?

I’ve got two pairs of AirPods and it works. No tried to connect AirPods and a generic pair of BT headphones and it didn’t work.
