The Complete Guide to Stream Apple Music to SoundTouch

Q: Apple Music on Soundtouch? I have been anxiously awaiting for Bose to announce they will begin supporting Apple Music on the Soundtouch products. They claimed last fall that they were moving in the direction to support Apple Music, but I haven't seen or heard that is coming. Amymp asked on Bose SoundTouch Community.

SoundTouch is a full family of wireless speakers, similar to Sonos. With it, you don't need to move your speaker system from room to room, put up with wires and cables trailing under doors and rugs and up the stairs. The wireless speakers are capable of controlling a range of your devices to stream music around your home.

SoundTouch systems let you stream music wirelessly from Internet radio (which offers access to roughly 20,000 stations from around the world) and music services such as Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, SiriusXM, Deezer and QPlay (where available). They also can stream music from a music library stored on a computer or NAS drive.

Why Can't I Play Apple Music on SoundTouch?

Although Soundtouch supports many music services, Apple Music is not in the list. When the Soundtouch products begin supporting Apple Music? Due to licensing issues and fees, you don't know how long it will take. It is a really major disappointment that you cannot use Apple Music with the Soundtouch system. So is there no other way to enjoy Apple Music songs through SoundTouch? You don't have to worry about that, now we implement it in three different methods.

Method 1. Enjoy Apple Music to SoundTouch via Bluetooth

If your SoundTouch system supports Bluetooth, you can easily access your Apple Music songs from smartphones or tablets wirelessly with the ability to connect to Bluetooth.

1. In the SoundTouch app, select Menu in the top left corner.

2. Choose Settings > Speaker Settings and select your SoundTouch system to view the system details screen. Choose Bluetooth and select PAIR.

3. Pair your Bluetooth device to the SoundTouch. To open your devices, go into its settings and turn on Bluetooth. Then select your SoundTouch system from the list of available Bluetooth devices.

Method 2. Stream Apple Music to SoundTouch through AirPlay

A lot of people just don't like using Bluetooth connecting their peripherals to their SoundTouch, in part because of poor sound quality. Fortunately, Apple has unveiled its latest Wi-Fi protocol, called AirPlay 2, which is compatible with Apple new speakers and third-party speakers like SoundTouch.

Go to Settings > AirPlay, you can see all the devices/speakers connected to your home network. Select the SoundTouch home speaker. Now you can stream content directly from the Apple Music app of iOS devices you own, and control the SoundTouch speakers using AirPlay. However, the disadvantage is that it is only available in Apple's devices, including iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV and Mac.

Method 3. Add Apple Music Songs from Your Computer to SoundTouch

Apple Music is definitely a heavily requested feature. More and more SoundTouch users are willing to use this Music service straight out of the Sound Touch box - full access, good quality sound, no limitations. In this part, we will provide an ultimate method to put things right once and for.

According to the SoundTouch's official website: the SoundTouch systems and application are compatible with Windows Media Player, iTunes, and a NAS drive for stored music. And it's supported audio formats including MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC and Apple Lossless.

However, Apple Music and the vast iTunes Music Store catalog are not equal. Songs from Apple Music are essentially a cached stream, and not individually stored songs. And these streaming songs are encoded at 256kbps AAC with DRM protection, which prevents you from copying or transferring to other programs or devices. Thus, in order to play Apple Music on SoundTouch directly, you need to remove DRM from Apple Music songs firstly and then convert them to the audio formats supported by SoundTouch systems.
