How to Cast Apple Music to Chromecast Audio
'Can you stream Apple Music to Chromecast?' I am using Apple Music to listen to music. Last weekend, I want to share a good song with my family for dinner. But I failed to cast the Apple Music to Chromecast. Can anyone think of a way to get Apple Music streaming into a Chromecast Audio?
What is Chromecast Audio?
Chromecast Audio is a small media streaming device that plugs into the AUX input of your speaker, making your speaker Wi-Fi enabled. Once set up, simply use your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac or Windows laptop, or Chromebook to stream your favorite tunes to the best speakers in the house.
Chromecast Audio is Google's ultra-affordable Wi-Fi music dongle, which can stream anything from an Android device and many top iOS apps with built-in Cast buttons including Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Google Play Music, YouTube Music, and iHeartRadio as well as support multiroom audio, digital and analog outputs and -- with Google Home -- voice control.
Users can enjoy over million songs from music services like Pandora, Google Play Music, Spotify, and iHeartRadio. However, you won't find Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, Tidal, and Amazon Prime Music in the list of supported music streaming services.
If you get the Apple Music subscription, you can play, enjoy and download these music tracks with the Apple account, but you can't transfer them or copy them to other non-Apple Music players and devices. Once canceled the subscription, you can't access the Apple Music catalog anymore. Besides, the music you have downloaded is not available any longer.
If you are Apple Music subscribers and want to cast Apple Music to Chromecast Audio, what to do? In the following tutorial, we will help you to enjoy Apple Music songs through Chromecast Audio with the two methods.
