"How do I listen to apple music on my chromebook, since I can't download iTunes?"

"So all of my music I have is on apple music and I just got a chromebook for Christmas and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out how to transfer Apple Music to my Chromebook?"

With its simplicity, flexibility and lower price, Chromebook sales are booming. I'm delighted to own a Google Chromebook, too. The only unsatisfied point is the missing of iTunes and Apple Music. In this case, I cannot listen to Apple Music songs on Chromebook while working or browsing websites.

The Workaround for Playing Apple Music on Chromebook

We all know the truth that Apple Music can only be played on iTunes, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android (if you install the App). All Apple Music songs are encrypted with Apple Fairplay DRM which restrict us to transfer Apple Music to any other device. Therefore, we cannot move Apple Music songs to Google Play Music and then play them on Chromebook. If we want to play Apple music on other device just as playing MP3, we first need to bypass the DRM on Apple Music.

Apple Music Converter is an ideal tool to help us remove DRM from Apple Music and convert Apple Music to plain MP3. Then, we can listen to Apple Music on Chromebook freely.

Free download the trial version of the program and follow is the step-by-step guide below to start the job.

Step 1. Open Apple Music Converter

Download, install and launch Apple Music Converter on your computer. Please note that iTunes will be opened at the same time automatically.

Step 2. Select Apple Music Songs

Chromebooks support the following file types: .3gp, .avi, .mov, .mp4, .m4v, .m4a, .mp3,. mkv, ogv, .ogm, .ogg, .oga, .webm, .wav.  So you can select "MP3" as output format here.
