The Ultimate Guide to Streaming your MP3 Files to WiFi / Chromecast and AirPlay Speakers

This guide isn't for Spotify, Apple Music or Amazon Music.

Streaming or casting your music collection wirelessly across your home couldn't be easier, and with the variety of speakers available with WiFi, Bluetooth or AirPlay, including Alexa devices or Chromecast, there is plenty of choice.

Scan your Music Folder

Connect over wifi to your music folder on your computer using MusicStreamer available on iPad / iPhone and Mac. MusicStreamer will scan all your music files and your albums will start to appear quite rapidly.

You can start streaming your music immediately to other devices around the house. Depending on the types of devices you have, streaming or casting your music to several sets of speakers is also possible.

Chromecast

Easily play Apple Music files to your Chromecast speakers

Simply tap the Chromecast icon to the right of the volume control and select your Chromecast device.

Unlike Bluetooth devices, Chromecast works over WiFi so you can connect to multiple sets of speakers. This is called Multi-room. For example you can create a new Group of speakers called Downstairs that has both your Living Room speakers and your Kitchen speakers linked together.
See our guide for setting up Multi-room.


How to Setup Multi-room

Apple's Music app does not work with Chromecast so you will need to use another app such as MusicStreamer to cast your MP3s.
Only MusicStreamer on iOS supports Chromecast.
