Finally, Google Chromecast was chosen to be the lucky one because now Apple Music decides to support Chromecast since Sep 25th. With this support, you can stream your favorite Apple Music songs from your Android phone through Wi-Fi to your speaker. So, catch up on this great news and let the music on.

However, this is not the end of the story. The good news only benefits Android users because the support is only been added to Apple Music for Android. If you are using iPhone or iPad, you will need some extra help to achieve the same result. Next up, I will write about how to stream Apple Music to Chromecast for Android and iOS users separately. Stay tuned if you are interested.

As we all know, unlike the common audio files, the Apple Music tracks are in protected M4P format, due to which you are prohibited from sharing the downloaded Apple Music songs to Chromecast Audio or other non-Apple devices. Therefore, in order to make Apple Music songs playable on Chromecast, you can use TunesKit Audio Converter to convert Apple Music M4P songs to MP3. Once the protection is removed completely, you can then freely stream the unprotected Apple Music files to home speakers via Chromecast Audio as expected.
