It should come as little surprise that many of us who own multiple Android devices trust Google to tend to much of our music streaming needs. Even if you don't subscribe to All Access, Google Music offers one of the easiest ways to access your personal collection across multiple devices, including smartphones, tablets, and PCs. But what about your TV? Your Xbox 360? If you want to stream music from Google on devices that aren't officially supported, Cast To UPnP/DLNA For GMusic, from the developer of BubbleUPnP, has you covered.

UPnP1 UPnP2

As the screenshots show, this app makes streaming music to supported UPnP/DLNA devices as simple as connecting to a Chromecast device. In fact, the app relies on the same icon and menu, so it should feel familiar to anyone who already has a Chromecast or two on their network. The developer has provided a video showing just how quickly and easily the app is supposed to work, demoing it streaming from Play Music to an Xbox 360 and XBMC.

Cast To UPnP/DLNA For GMusic is free to download, but the free version only allows twenty minutes of streaming per app launch. You can remove this restriction by buying the unlocker within the app for $1.99.

    This is great. Never even considered this an option, but I will definitely be using this with my Xbox plenty playing Forza.

    • remister

      I am getting bored of the selection of Forza Horizon Hits.

        I got bored of Forza. It's a poor man's Gran Turismo because of it's fake arcade graphics and physics.

        • tanknspank

          To each his own man. My roommate and I frequently play both and while Gran Turismo's simulation is nice, it's often more fun to play Forza 4 with a slightly less impressive simulation. They are just video games after all.

      Does this really work while playing a game? The service can't seem to find my Xbox while I'm in-game.

    The Icon is a bit misleading.

  • Trent Russell

    Holy crap. this works beautifully.

  • Alessio Panacotta

    I'm in Europe and don't see the Chromecast icon, any fix? I'd love to be able to stream gmusic to my xbox!

  • Brett Besa

    Would this be able to work with a PS3?

    • RaviShah

      ps3 doesnt support dlna push

  • RaviShah

    Man if this supported airplay it would be perfect. (My family is all Apple and we have an AppleTV)

    • Nathan Starr

      The developer has airplay apps as well. If your using also using an android device as the "reciever/server", his airplay app would work for recieving info from the Apple devices.

      • RaviShah

        well i wanna be able to stream play music to an appletv from my phone

        • Nathan Starr

          Search AirPlay in the play store and you'll find a few apps that do this. I don't have an appletv, so I can't comment on their performance.

          • ddh819

            There's AirAudio, but you have to be rooted

  • Samvith V Rao

    This is probably the best application of the conversion from free to paid app system

    I'm loving this 'casting' revolution. I was floored when I found that bluetooth devices were showing up in the casting list. It makes so much sense I wasn't expecting it.

  • Nathan Starr

    In 10 minutes I set up two old android devices set up as receivers/servers on my two stereo systems and can stream/cast from my stock Note 8 or rooted Note 2, and switch back and forth easily. Better quality sound than a dedicated BT receiver. I'm a very happy camper.

  • Michael Bailey

    :/ How do you get XBMC to show up in the list?

  • user

    It worked until the Google play music 5.6 update, now the icon doesn't show up anymore
