Apple Music is one of the music streaming applications developed by Apple Inc. It allows users to listen to curated playlists along with 100+ million songs. Using the in-built Chromecast feature available on Apple Music, you can cast the songs straight from your smartphone to the TV.
If you have an Android device, you can cast the Apple Music directly. However, the feature is not yet available on the iPhone version of Apple Music. On desktops and PCs, you can cast it with the help of Chrome or Edge browser.
