Google needs Apple Songs to play on Chromecast Audio … but Apple is quiet for now

During the statement of Google’s Chromecast Audio yesterday, the firm made certain to mention that audio subscription leader Spotify will shortly be among the various music flowing solutions supported by the system. With several Apple Audio subscriptions reviving (or maybe not reviving) and Google unveiling a $3-5 dongle that retro-fits our present house loudspeakers with Wireless Local Area Network, some are rightfully questioning: What about Apple Audio?

According to statements from Googler (via TrustedReviews), Google does not have any bar on any system joining in on supporting Chromecast, and the Mountain-View firm has already directly requested Apple to play-along…

Meanwhile, Apple is creating an Android app for Apple Songs, a move many saw as unprecedented for the business. Before that, I’d have said that indigenous Chromecast support for mdash & Apple Songs; particularly in light of rsquo & Apple;s competing mdash air-play &; would be impossible.

Alongside Chromecast Sound yesterday, Google also declared the 2nd era Chromecast, the Pixel C, the Nexus 5X, and the Nexus 6P. Google additionally made aggressive moves toward Apple using the latest variant of its Chromecast app, which allows consumers sift through content in several the same methods the newest Apple TV does — it even contains voice search.
