Will Gen 3 iPod touch stream music through Airport Express?

The title says it all. Can a third-generation iPod touch stream music through an airport express that's hooked up to a stereo receiver?

If it makes a difference, they can use the old-style Airport express or the new airport express.

Any iDevice that can get on a network that has an Airport Express should be able to stream audio to it.

Yes, it can but you may need to update to whatever the most-recent iOS it can run if not done so already.

Know also that these earlier iterations of Airplay from iDevices could be problematic. By that I mean, you might not see the AirPlay icon show up in whatever app you're streaming from.

If this happens, try either rebooting the iPod or "force quitting" the app (double-click Home and hit the red "-" next to the app down in the tray. I think you'll have to switch over to another app first, like Safari, before quitting the troublesome app in this way.

Nice, I just tried it out with my Gen 3 Touch running iOS 5, and it works great.

I never knew it could do this. This is much nicer than needing to have my iMac on to stream music.

When you activate WiFi, you'll get a little icon that looks like the iTunes speaker selector icon in the lower right of your iPod.
