If you subscribe to the streaming music service Apple Music, you will most likely be listening on an Apple device such as a Mac, iPhone or iPad. But you can also enjoy Apple Music on Windows PC. Here’s how.
Method 1: Use the Apple Music Web Player
Apple has created a web-based music player with an interface similar to iTunes and the Music app that runs directly in your browser. To use it, just open your favorite browser and go to music.apple.com to get started.
Once you have loaded the site, click the “Sign Up” button and you can log in with your Apple account information.
As part of the login process, you may need to verify your login with a passcode on one of your Apple devices. After signing in, you can search, browse, or play music just like you would in iTunes or the Apple Music app.
When you are done listening, bookmark the site and just close your browser. The next time you want to listen, click the bookmark and you’ll be right back where you left off. And don’t forget: the web player also works on Mac and Linux!
Method 2: Install iTunes
You can also access the Apple Music service through iTunes. While Apple has migrated to the Music app on its Mac platform, iTunes is still alive and well on Windows 10. If you don’t already have iTunes, you can download and install it from the Microsoft Store.
Once installed, open “iTunes” and select Account> Sign In from the menu.
After signing up, you can access your iCloud Music Library and also your Apple Music subscription. To listen to Apple Music content, perform a search or click Browse.
For example, if you click “Browse” you can choose an artist from the Apple Music service and listen to the music almost instantly, as the music will be streamed to iTunes from the Internet – no downloads required.
Have fun listening!
