    Thread title says it all. In the latest iTunes on my mac I can of course play any Apple Music stuff, or play the (pre-existing) internet radio stations. I then see them in Remote on my iPhone in 'Now Playing' and can pause or skip ahead. But I can't find or start play of either in Remote.

    I know I can stream from the phone using Airplay, but it's not as reliable as streaming from my mac (hardwired) and also drains the phone battery.

    Something similar happened the last time Apple did a big iTunes update. Took them a while to get Remote in line. Grrr.

    It does not work with iTunes Match as well. I do not use the Apple Music, just the iTunes Match. I can control my offline songs with the Remote app, but I can no longer see the music in the cloud via the app. Previously, it worked pretty well.

    Funny - I just installed the public beta of iOS 9 and Remote now controls Internet Radio stations. But still not Apple Radio. Doh!

    Are you running El Capitan? I am hoping they add this feature soon. It is the only reason I haven't cancelled Rdio yet.
