We all know that SoundTouch wireless and multi-room speakers are the easiest way to enjoy a world of music. With them, users can browse popular music services like Spotify, Deezer or TuneIn, or your stored music library and easily personalize presets for one touch access to the music you love, and control one or many SoundTouch speakers.
As you see, SoundTouch supports many music streaming services, but Apple Music doesn't included. If you are Apple Music subscribers, are there any methods to play them via SoundTouch Speakers?
Don't worry, this tutorial will focus on the complete guide of how to play Apple Music on SoundTouch Speakers in three methods.
If you are using the newer generation of Bose SoundTouch, "Congratulations to you", you can connect it with Apple Music playback via Bluetooth.

AirPlay is a technique developed by Apple Inc. which allows the wireless streaming of audio, video and photos between devices. Airplay supports a good solution to play music files from Apple Devices to other devices. If you are Bose SoundTouch Series II users, just use Airplay to plat Apple Music files on the devices.
