Chromecast Audio is a small device developed by Google that can be plugged into your speaker for streaming your favorite tunes from phones or computers through Wi-Fi. Currently, you can access over 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 directly on Chromecast Audio at all. That's because Apple refused to support Google Cast ever since the release of Apple Music service.

However, that's not the end of the story. The good news is that with some tricks, streaming Apple Music to Chromecast could still be possible. So if you are using Apple Music and looking for the workaround to play Apple Music on home speakers via Chromecast, the following guide will provide you the answer. Now let's find out the best solution to cast Apple Music to Chromecast Audio effortlessly.

Stream Apple Music to Chromecast: What Tool You'll Need

As you can't access Apple Music within Chromecast due to the incompatibility, you may wonder whether it's possible to upload the offline songs downloaded from Apple Music to Chromecast. Unfortunately, unlike the common audio files, the Apple Music tracks are protected by FairPlay DRM technology, 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, what you need is an Apple Music DRM removal solution that can help you killing DRM lock from the Apple Music before casting the songs to Chromecast.
