Chromecast Audio is a small device developed by Google that can plug into your speaker for streaming your favorite tunes from your phones or computers through WiFi. Currently, you can access to around 30 million songs via Chromecast from music services like Pandora, Google Play Music, Spotify, and iHeartRadio, etc. But for subscribers to music streaming service like Apple Music, you'll find it's impossible to play Apple Music on Chromecast at all. That's because Apple refused to support Google Cast ever since the release of Apple Music. However, that's not the end of the story.

So if you are using Apple Music and looking for the way to play your Apple Music on your home speakers via Chromecast, you should read the following article to find out the best solution to cast Apple Music to Google Chromecast Audio with a few steps only.
