The doubleTwist developers have introduced the ability to stream Google Play Music to AirPlay devices using MagicPlay, their own personal means of streaming music from Android to an AppleTV or AirPlay-compatible speakers. The process taps into the same API that Google uses to stream to the Chromecast and that which Sonos uses for Google Play Music to stream to its devices.
Unfortunately, there’s a catch. According to doubleTwist’s blog post, the Google Play Music app filters out plugins other than those used for the Nexus Q and Sonos.
- Sonos Adds Support For Google Play Music, Including Casting From Play Music Android App
- BubbleUPnP Update Allows Root Users To Stream Audio From Most Apps To Any UPnP Or DLNA Device
- SoundSeeder Does Its Best Chromecast Impression, Adds Google Play Music Streaming In The Latest Update
- ‘Cast To UPnP/DLNA For GMusic’ Can Stream Google Music To PCs, TVs, XBMC, Xbox 360s, And Many Other Supported Devices
