Do you like to use Chomecast Audio to stream your music to your home speakers? If so, you may know that Chromecast Audio doesn’t support Apple Music channel yet. That’s to say, if you registered Apple Music service, you are not able to cast the Apple Music songs to other media devices via Chromecast Audio. That’s really annoying. But here in this article, we are going to show you a simple way to play your Apple Music on Google Chromecast in a few clicks only.
What You Need to Know about Apple Music & DRM
Apple Music, like other online streaming music services, is protected by DRM. Due to that limit, users who subscribed Apple Music service can only listen to the music songs on devices with related Apple ID. You are not allowed to copy and transfer the downloaded Apple Music tracks to other platforms or devices. And if you unsubscribe Apple Music, the offline music streams you saved on the devices will become inoperable automatically.
