I am using Apple Music to listen to music. Last weekend, I want to share a good song with my family on 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?

Though Chromecast supports many music streaming service, Apple Music is not in the list. And the Apple Music are encrypted with DRM protection to prevent privacy. But you can get help from Apple Music Converter which can convert Apple Music to the format supported by Chromecast. Then you can stream the Apple Music on Chromecast.

The Chromecast Audio dongle is supported by a number of music services and applications including Google Play Music, Spotify, Deezer, Pandora, iHeartRadio and etc. While Apple Music is missing from the lineup.

Since Apple Music was announced in 2015, and it has passed 2 years till now, Apple Music still does not support the Chromecast Audio device. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given Apple’s historic reluctance to work with competitors.

Although Apple Music is not supported, there is way to make it through. The post from DRM Wizard shows one's experience to get Apple Music streaming into a Chromecast Audio successfully, by not bearing or waiting.

To be honest, we have no rights to play iTunes music on Apple unauthorized devices, since all iTunes music are in M4P which DRM(Digital Rights Management) protected, making it can be played on Apple devices only. If you want to enjoy Apple music on Chromecast, you have to get rip of fairplay DRM protection at first. Fortunately, there are many DRM Audio Converter on the Internet to help us remove DRM protection from iTunes music. After that, you will be able to enjoy these music freely.

Currently, Chromecast enables us get access to more than 30 million songs from music services like Pandora, Google Play Music, Spotify, and iHeartRadio, etc. However, Apple refused to support Google Cast ever since the release of the service due to the copyright protection.

In this case, you have to rely on some extra tools in order to sync Apple Music to Chromecast. Something called TunesKit Apple Music Converter might meet your needs as it will help you convert the Apple Music songs to Chromecast supported music format.

Not possible. Apple currently doesn't want to make Apple Music available to stream through the Chromecast device.

Actually there's a pretty simple way - you can cast any sound/visual from smartphone using Google Home.
At least it works on Android.

There's a lot of incorrect information in the responses. I registered to post some easy instructions in case others have the same question and incorrectly assume that all the "no" answers mean you can't do it. You can. It's fairly easy. Alexander Kononenko had the right answer but didn't really tell people the necessary details.

In my case, I'm using the apple music app from an android phone. If you're using the apple music app from an apple phone, you can just cast to chromecast directly from the apple music app. The cast button is conspicuously absent from the Android version of Apple Music.

You can cast audio(or video) to a chromecast device from an android phone even if the android app doesn't directly support casting. You do it with an app called "Home" from Google.

Step 1. Run Home (aka Google Home). It's on the Play Store if you don't already have it installed, and it's free.
Step 2. Touch the "Account" button. On the main google Home screen, it's the bottom right button. The button looks kind of like a circle with a drawing of a person in it.
Step 3. Touch "Mirror Device" from the menu that came up after step 2
Step 4. Click "Cast Screen / Audio". It's the only button on the screen, so it's easy to find.
Step 4. Select your chromecast device. If the chromecast isn't listed, you might not be signed into your home's wifi. If you've got the device already setup in google home, it might be listed more than once. In my case, I'm casting to an Onkyo TX-RZ820 stereo with "Chromecast Built-In".
Step 5. Run the Apple Music app and play the song of your choice!

Actually, you can replace step 5 with anything you like. After steps 1-4, your phone will be using the chromecast for audio/video output from your phone. Any thing you play on your phone will also play on your chromecast. If you're playing video, you might need to tweak the settings on your phone so that the audio and video are in sync. You can google for how to do that separately.

Anyway.. as you can see, there's no hacks, third party apps, drm removal or any of that nonsense required. You can play anything on your chromecast that you could play from your Android phone. That includes music/video played through Apple Music.

Personally, I prefer Google Music over Apple Music but Verizon is giving away Apple Music subscriptions for free (if you've got a Verizon unlimited data plan) so I'm moving to Apple from Google for music. Free is for me after all.

Hope this helps clear up some of the nonsense floating around (and in this message thread). Enjoy your music, and don't worry about DRM. In this case, all the DRM in the world is a non-issue. This method isn't illegal. This method is fully supported by Google (since it uses a Google Chromecast and Google Home). Apple doesn't specify what kind of speakers or listening hardware you use in their EULA, so you aren't violating the terms or anything of the sort.

I know this is almost a year old. And honestly dont know if anyone has suggested this?
But I want to share my way, which I found the easiest (:

I'm using a windows computer btw
And I'm streaming Apple Music to my chromecast right now.
All I did was just open iTunes (the app) and google chrome on my computer, choose 'cast descktop',
mark 'cast sound' and then it worked for me.

When we want share Apple Music to others, we can't send the playlist directly, we need remove DRM protection of Apple Music, and convert Apple Music to MP3, which format is used widely in any player and mobile device. You can have a try.
