Good news is there is a workaround for fixing it! With this method, you can stream your Apple Music to Chromecast and Chromecast Audio on any device - Mac, Windows PC, android phones, android tablets, android TV, even your iPad and iPhone!

Stream your Apple Music to Chromecast/Chromecast Audio on any device

I bet we all know that we can download Apple Music songs on devices for offline listening. But we can't add the downloaded music to non apple software for playing. Chromecast or Chromecast Audio won't have the chance either. Because Apple Music songs are DRM protected audio file.

If we remove the DRM and convert Apple Music songs to normal audio file, say MP3, then we can easily play them on your Mac or Windows PC and cast them to Chromecast/Chromecast Audio.
Or be smarter, we upload our favoriate Apple Music songs from our Mac and Windows PC to Google Play library (in cloud) and then stream them using Google Music app which has support for Chromecast/Chromecast audio on any device we have. Because, yes, we can download Google Play Music app on iOS devices as well!
