Part 1 Chromecast supports Google Play Music not Apple Music

With Google Play Music and a Chromecast device (Chromecast, Chromecast Audio, or TV and speakers with Chromecast built-in),  you can take your favorite tunes to a whole other level by casting them to your TV or speakers. But you can't directly stream iTunes songs or Apple Music songs to Chromecast. If you have local music files on your computer, you can upload them to Google Play Music with Music Manager first. Music Manager allows you to upload up to 50,000 songs from your computer to your Google Play library and listen on your mobile device, computer, Chromecast or Android TV.
