apple-music-on-google-home.jpg

It’s easy to play music on Google Home as currently this smart speaker supports multiple built-in music services, including Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube. However, since Apple Music is not a supported service within Google Home, it’s no easy job for Apple Music subscribers to play Apple Music via Google Home unless they use bluetooth to pair the Apple Music with the speaker. But in this case, they can only control the playback with basic commands. So is there another way to stream Apple Music to Google Home with full control? The answer is yes. The following article will show you how to connect Apple Music to Google Home without bluetooth.

What Tool You’ll Need

Generally speaking, to make Apple Music playable on Google Home, the key point is to delete the copyright protection from Apple Music songs firstly. As you should know, Apple uses DRM encryption technology to limit the use of Apple Music streams on authorized devices only. Thus other devices, like Google Home are not allowed to play Apple Music. So if we can bypass the DRM, then it would be possible to upload the Apple Music songs to Google Play Music for playback on Google Home.

Here you meet TunesKit Apple Music Converter, a top-rated Apple Music DRM remover with which you can completely remove the DRM from Apple Music songs and convert those protected M4P music files to popular MP3 or other formats that can be synced to Google Home.

Make sure to connect your device to the same Wi-Fi network that you intend to use to set up your Google Home device. Open the Google Home app by tapping the app icon on your device. Tap “Get Started”. Then choose the Google Play Music premium account that you want to link to Google Home. Tab OK.

Step 3 Play Apple Music on Google Home

Now you can begin to ask Google Home play the Apple Music you just uploaded to Google Play account with voice commands, like “Play (song name),” Play (song name ) by (artist),” etc.

Can’t Sync Apple Music to iPod? Solved!

apple-music-on-ipod

Q: I downloaded some Apple Music songs but when I try to sync them to my iPod nano, I got the error message saying “Apple Music songs cannot be copied to an iPod.” What’s wrong? Can’t Apple’s devices support its own service? Come on. Any solution?

Syncing Apple Music tracks to iPod, especially the iPod nano or shuffle is no easy job at all. According to Apple, currently there’s no way to put Apple Music songs on iPods except iPod touch because of the copyright protection. Can’t believe it? But it’s 100% true. Not only iPods, other popular MP3 players like Walkman, Zune can’t support playing Apple Music either. However, that’s possible now thanks to the rapid development of some special Apple Music tools. Here in this post, we’ll show you one of the best solutions to put Apple Music songs on iPod nano/shuffle for offline listening.

Part 1. iPod won’t sync Apple Music, why?

Firstly, let’s take a look at the reason why Apple Music can’t be synced to iPod nano or shuffle. In fact,  that’s simply because iPod nano and shuffle lack Wi-Fi capabilities without which Apple can’t authenticate whether or not the device has an active Apple Music subscription. In other words, Apple can’t track and control your use of those Apple Music songs on your iPods since in this case you can freely download the Apple Music songs within the 3-month free trial subscription and then cancel the service permanently. To avoid such situation, Apple disables the sync between Apple Music and iPod nano and shuffle as well as other common MP3 players. In result, only selected devices like iPhone, iPad, Android could stream Apple Music tracks properly.

The technology Apple used to track your subscription and authorization of Apple Music is called DRM. Because of which, once the Apple Music subscription is cancelled, the music collections will withdraw from all your devices automatically. Therefore, in order to offline sync Apple Music tracks to iPod nano or shuffle, the key is to find a way to break the DRM restriction from Apple Music.

Part 2. Best tool to remove DRM from Apple Music

To delete DRM lock from Apple Music tracks, a professional Apple Music DRM removal software is necessary. TunesKit Apple Music Converter is such a great 3rd party Apple Music converting tool that can help you completely remove DRM protection from Apple Music songs and playlists. It will also convert the specially encoded Apple Music files to common MP3 format compatible with iPod nano/shuffle while keeping the original quality and ID3 tags. With this smart app, you can keep the Apple Music songs on your iPod forever even when the subscription expires.

apple-music-web-player

Unlike any other music tracks, songs you downloaded from Apple Music are impossible to play through web browsers on computer. They are stuck with iTunes app for playing on Mac or PC.

As one of the most popular speakers worldwide, Amazon Echo is widely used for streaming and playing music, setting alarms, providing real time news, etc. Being a great music speaker and player, Amazon Echo provides us easy access to many of the largest music streaming services, including Amazon Music, Prime Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn via voice control.

Spotify vs. Apple Music vs. Amazon Music: Which Wins

spotify-apple-music-amazon.jpg

With the introduction of Amazon Music Unlimited, there has never been a better time to introduce yourself to paid music streaming services, which continue to gain in popularity.

In this article, you’ll learn more about Amazon Music Unlimited and see how it compares to Spotify and Apple Music.

Amazon Music Unlimited

Not to be confused with Amazon Music (formerly Amazon MP3), Amazon Music Unlimited is a music streaming service that offers “tens of millions” of songs with new releases from today’s most popular artists. Like other premium music streaming services on the market, Amazon Music Unlimited allows you to listen to your favorite songs on-demand. You can also download your songs to your devices for offline use.

Isn’t This Amazon Prime Music?

If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you already have access to over 2 million songs at no additional cost. You also receive a thousand playlists and stations programmed by Amazon’s music experts. A membership to Amazon Music Unlimited, by contrast, increases the number of songs available considerably. You also gain access to new genres and styles of music.

The best way to explain the difference between the two services (in additional to the library size) is how each handles new music releases. Amazon Music Unlimited will almost certainly have the newest album from your favorite artist on day one of its release. Amazon Prime Music probably won’t.

Alexa

Not surprisingly, Amazon Music Unlimited works with Amazon Alexa voice controls, found on devices such as the Echo, Dot, and Tap. For example, you can say “Alexa, play the new song by One Republic” or “Alexa, play the latest album by Rihanna.” You can also try commands like “Alexa, play the most popular rock from the 80s” or “Alexa, play music for a dinner party.”

Availability

Amazon Music Unlimited is available on multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Mac, PC, Fire TV, Fire tablets, and on the web. Additionally, it works with home entertainment products such as Sonos, Roku, and Bose. The service is also coming on new cars from Ford, BMW, and Mini.

At the time of this writing, Amazon Music Unlimited is only available in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and Austria.

Exclusivity

Offering exclusive content is one of the ways music streaming services hope to keep customers. Despite being the newest service on our list, Amazon Music Unlimited got a huge exclusive to end 2016. It’s the first streaming service to feature Garth Brooks’ entire 16-album collection. The best-selling solo artist in US history had never allowed digital downloads for any of his music until now.

Costs

Amazon Prime members can subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited for $7.99 per month, which is $2 off the standard monthly price. You can save a little extra by paying $79 per year upfront. Amazon also offers a family plan for $14.99 per month or $149.99 per year. With the family plan, you and your family can stream music on up to six devices at the same time.

If you only want to stream music from your Amazon Alexa device, the company offers a low-cost option for $3.99 per month.

New users can try Amazon Music Unlimited free for 30 days.

Apple Music

Given that iTunes brought digital music to the mainstream way back in 2001, it’s surprising that it took so long for Apple to offer a music streaming service of its own. First launched in June 2015, Apple Music provides a combination of on-demand music and curated playlists. As with Amazon Music Unlimited, Apple Music allows you to download music for offline use as long as you continue being a subscriber.

When it first launched, Apple Music placed great emphasis on the service’s Beats 1 internet radio station and a blog platform called Connect. Featuring live broadcasts 24 hours a day, Beats 1 features anchors Zane Lowe, Ebro Darden, and Julie Adenuga, among others. Connect is for artists to share their posts, photos, videos, and tracks with subscribers.

Apple Music still hosts Beats 1 and Connect, although the two features have taken on far less importance in recent months. In September 2016, Apple began rolling out two new personalized music playlists called “My New Music Mix” and “My Favorite Mix.” The former is similar to Spotify’s popular “Discover Weekly” playlist. Both offer music based on your listening history.

Availability

Not surprisingly, Apple Music is available across all of Cupertino’s key products, iOS devices, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. It’s also available through iTunes on Mac/PC and Android devices. You can also stream Apple Music through CarPlay and Sonos systems.

Apple Music is available in over 100 countries around the world with more coming online each month. If you’re reading this article, it’s likely that Apple Music is available where you are.

Exclusivity

With iTunes, Apple was a master at offering content before anyone else. The company has had similar success with Apple Music. In its short life, Apple Music has been the home to exclusive music from Taylor Swift, Lil Yachty, Usher, Frank Ocean, among others. These exclusives usually have a short window, allowing the music to spread to other services after a period of time.

Costs

An individual Apple Music plan costs $9.99 per month. A family plan, which is good for up to six people, is priced at $14.99 per month. Student plans are available at $4.99 per month.

New subscribers can try Apple Music free for three months.

Spotify Premium

With 40 million paying customers worldwide, Spotify is the world’s top music-streaming service. First introduced in Sweden in 2006, the service is available in all corners of the world, including most of Europe, the Americas, and parts of Asia.

Unlike Apple Music, Spotify offers a free plan that includes ads. Though highly restrictive, this program allows would-be subscribers to experience Spotify without paying a dime. Offering this type of availability seems to be working, as there are currently 100 million Spotify total users worldwide.

Like the other services on our list, Spotify Premium gives you the ability to play any song, both on-demand and offline. Where Spotify Premium excels is with its “Discover Weekly” feature, which suggests music based on your music preferences and listening history. You also have access to custom playlists, which are put together by theme, decades, and genre.

Availability

You can find Spotify nearly everywhere, including iOS, Android, Amazon devices, Samsung Smart TVs, Roku, PlayStation, Sonos, and more. You can also use Spotify on the web.

To date, Spotify is available in nearly 60 countries with more coming online each year.

New subscribers can try Spotify Premium free for 30 days.

Exclusivity

Spotify isn’t known for offering many exclusives. The biggest news on this front, in fact, has been when artists have withheld new albums from the service due to royalty issues. Where Spotify does excel, however, is when it comes to curation. It offers lots of artist information, making it very easy to find songs to enjoy. It also does an excellent job of recommending additional artists based on your earlier preferences.

Cost

Spotify Premium is available for $9.99 per month for an individual subscription and $14.99 per month for a family plan. Students can purchase a subscription for $4.99 per month.

Which Music Streaming Service Is Best?

In general terms, Amazon Music Unlimited, Apple Music, and Spotify Premium offer the same underlying features, on-demand music and the ability to download songs for offline listening. From there, each provides unique extras worth considering.

Amazon Music Unlimited is a great choice for Amazon Prime subscribers because of the extra discount it provides. Hardcore Amazon Alexa users can also benefit from selecting this service.

By contrast, if your world revolves around Apple products, Apple Music is probably the one for you. One of the biggest advantages of going this route is that Apple Music automatically merges your streaming content with what you’ve purchased from iTunes. This feature is a big deal if you’re looking to expand your current library across multiple devices.

Spotify Premium, meanwhile, is the best service for music discovery. This is an important point to consider if you’re the type of person that appreciates finding new music and artists.

As you can see, all three premium music streaming services have their advantages. You should therefore choose the one which best caters to your specific needs. However, I personally consider Apple Music the best option right now, unless of course you’re averse to all things Apple.

Besides offering iTunes integration, Apple Music is the only one of the three premium music streaming services being compared here offering a 90-day free trial. Which will give you plenty of time to determine whether it’s the service for you.

How to Remove DRM from iTunes Music

itunes-music-converter.jpg

As you know, Apple dropped the DRM encryption from its iTunes  M4P music tracks in 2009. But the problem is that the songs you purchased before the year of 2009 were still locked by the FairPlay DRM and you can’t freely play them on your non-Apple devices. So have you ever thought about stripping off the DRM from the iTunes music? If so, you should follow these two solutions as below to learn how to easily remove DRM from iTunes music.

Burn iTunes M4P Songs to CD/DVD

The good news is that although Apple doesn’t let you convert DRM-protected iTunes music to MP3, it lets you burn them to a CD. So here the first way to remove DRM from your iTunes songs is to burn the M4P tracks to DVD or CD disc.

1. Create music playlist in iTunes

Insert a blank CD or DVD disc in the drive and open iTunes on your computer. Select the File > New Playlist option. Add a name to the new playlist.

2. Add iTunes songs to playlist

Now select all the iTunes M4P music files that you want to remove DRM from and drag them to the playlist that you just created.

3. Burn iTunes music to CD

Once the tracks are imported to the iTunes playlist, right-click the playlist and select the option “Burn playlist to Disc”. iTunes will now present you a dialogue box where you can select the kind of CD/DVD that you want to burn. Make sure you select the Audio CD option. Then iTunes will start burning the iTunes music to the CD automatically.

4. Import iTunes songs from CD/ DVD

The final step is to rip the songs that you burned onto audio CD, back to digital music files. Simply open iTunes, select the Edit > Preferences > General tab, click on Import Settings. To start ripping the audio CD, you should insert it into your CD drive on your computer and click the Yes button to start.

Wait for a while till the ripping finishes. Now all the files that have been imported into your music library will be free from DRM so that you can transfer them to any MP3 device for playback.

Note: The downside of using this method is that iTunes only lets you burn the same song once. Besides, if you have a lot of music files to burn, it will take a rather long time to finish the whole process. So if you have the need to convert a large amount of iTunes songs for more than once, you’d better use a legal DRM removal tool as mentioned in the following method.

Convert DRM-protected iTunes Music to MP3

The other common way to remove DRM from iTunes M4P is using a third-party DRM removal tool for iTunes. With this method, you can completely and permanently bypass the DRM lock from iTunes songs so that you can transfer the files to any devices at anytime without limit.
