How to Play Apple Music on Multiple Devices

Learn how to download Apple Music songs as MP3 files as an example and play them on multiple devices in simple steps.

Apple Music is a music, audio, and video streaming service developed by Apple Inc. It allows users to stream over 100 million songs to their devices on demand. If you want to play Apple Music songs with multiple devices, you can try to get an Apple Music family subscription which allows up to 6 devices with the same Apple ID to do it at a time. But due to the songs from Apple Music being all encrypted, not all devices can play these songs. And the songs will be invalid after your subscription plan expired.

According to this, we suggest you use a third-party tool to convert Apple Music songs as local files and then transfer them to different devices such as PC/Mac, mobile phones, Apple Watch, etc. Then you can play Apple Music songs with multiple devices simultaneously even if your subscription will expire in the future. Here we recommend you AudiFab Apple Music Converter.

Below we are going to show you how to use AudiFab Apple Music Converter to download Apple Music songs in local audio files in MP3 format as an example for listening on multiple devices.
