Let's get one thing straight – no one buys a gaming console like Xbox One for enjoying music. But if you have an Xbox One gaming console at home, you might be pleased to discover that it's quite easy to listen to music directly on the device. Yes, you can listen to music on Xbox One and in some cases you will have a better music playback experience with this gaming console because it is connected to powerful stereo and even better sound speaker systems.

Given the fact that the Xbox One also works as a media player, you might want to know if it is possible to enjoy Apple Music on Xbox One. We all know that the Apple Music songs are DRM protected that they are limited from playing on any other non-Apple devices, which means Xbox One cannot play songs from Apple Music directly. The only solution is to remove DRM decryption and convert the Apple Music to Xbox One compatible formats, such as MP3.
