You Can’t Play Beats 1 Radio Over AirPlay from iTunes

This has to be one of the more ridiculous “features” of Apple Music. A user in my iTunes forum pointed out that he couldn’t play Beats 1 Radio over AirPlay from iTunes on his Mac.

Seriously Apple? This is just weird. You can stream using AirPlay from an iOS device…

You can, however, choose an AirPlay device from your Mac’s audio settings. Or, Option-click the Volume icon in the menu bar (if you have it displayed there) and choose a device to stream to.
