Airfoil 5.5: Now Playing on Chromecast!

One of my favourite Mac util­i­ties has just been updat­ed to add some excel­lent func­tion­al­i­ty. Air­foil now sup­ports Chrome­cast and it works very well.
I’ve nev­er under­stood why Air­Play from an iOS device only allows you to send audio to one speak­er at a time, Air­foil is the per­fect way to fix that. My Mac­Book Pro is nor­mal­ly on and so I Air­Play to Air­foils sis­ter app Air­foil Satel­lite and then using the iOS Satel­lite app send the audio to what ever speak­ers I want. Since I have a Chrome­cast in my lit­tle stu­dio I can now eas­i­ly send Apple Music to my speak­ers with­out faffing around with cables. I put it to good use this morn­ing stream­ing to both my stu­dio speak­ers and kitchen speak­ers while I moved between the two rooms.
