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.
