If you are curious whether you can play Apple Music on Bose Soundtouch, I can absolutely say yes! But first, let me give you an insight into Bose SoundTouch.
Tips: For those who have installed Kodi as your Home Theater, you can follow this guide on Playing Apple Music With Kodi to enjoy your iTunes library
Bose SoundTouch is designed to be the easiest unified wireless music system that is created for home digital entertainment. It is a combination of both hardware and software that works over Wi-Fi integrated directly into Bose hardware. It is like a growing family of speakers wherein you can start with one speaker until you add more over time. Moreover, you can navigate all the Bose Soundtouch speakers with the use of a SoundTouch app.
One of the reasons that I liked with Soundtouch app is you can set anything you want your speaker to play either individually or as a group, for example, you can play an acoustic song on your living room while pop music on your kitchen or suddenly you wanted both of your speakers to play countryside songs. Aside from these, by using this app you can easily access your famous music services such as Spotify, Deezer, Amazon, Internet radio, or your stored music library on your computer or phones and enjoy or stream music in different areas of your house. Though I mentioned earlier that iTunes is no longer accessible to SoundTouch, you can still use or play Apple Music on SoundTouch by using these three methods: First through Airplay, Second via Bluetooth, and lastly by conversion. I will further each method in the next section.
AirPlay is a method created by Apple Inc. which permits the wireless streaming of music, video, and photos between every device. If you own an iPhone or any other iDevice with you, surely AirPlay is a great choice so you can easily play the music you ever wanted. But the thing is that not all Bose SoundTouch speakers now support AirPlay because of some reason, like in Series III they already removed the AirPlay connection, we are not even sure too if the newer version of the speaker will ever support AirPlay. But so, if you own a Series II, AirPlay is still to consider for you to play Apple Music on SoundTouch.
If you want to know how to use Airplay on SoundTouch you can follow the steps that I provided below:
Once you finished setting up your SoundTouch to your device via AirPlay, you can now stream directly from the Apple Music app of iOS devices you own, and also, you can navigate the SoundTouch speakers using AirPlay. However, the downside of this method, is that it is only works using Apple's devices such as the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, etc.
If you have the latest version of Bose SoundTouch and you want to use Apple Music, Bluetooth is also one to consider just like any other wireless device. It is another useful way to help you play Apple Music on SoundTouch. If you want to try this method, you can check the steps given below:
But the drawback of this method is that some users complain about the playback quality, they say that the quality is not that good and it doesn’t allow users to stream Apple Music using various devices.
