Use Apple Music with your Android devices

Listen to your favorite music in your car with Android Auto. Stream music to your TV with Chromecast. Manage your family's subscription. And so much more — all with Apple Music on Android.

Here's what you need

Sign in, then start listening

To get started, join Apple Music. If you already have an Apple Music subscription, sign in with the same Apple ID that you use with Apple Music. And if you're signed in to the Music app or iTunes for Windows with your Apple ID, you can access your music library on your Android device.


Use Apple Music with Chromecast

You can stream songs playing in Apple Music to your Chromecast device.

  1. Make sure that your Android device and Chromecast device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. Open Apple Music and start playback.
  3. Tap the song that's playing at the bottom of your screen to open Now Playing.
  4. Tap the Cast button .
  5. Tap your Chromecast device.

Before you start playing music, you can also tap the Cast button  at the top of the screen in the Music app.

If you need help with your Chromecast, visit Google Support.

Not all content types in Apple Music support Casting, and not all Chromecast devices are supported.

Use Apple Music with Android Auto

With Android Auto, you can listen to Apple Music in your car and control what's playing from your car's display panel. Just download Android Auto from Google Play on your device, then connect your device to you car.

To play music, use voice commands like "play [title of album]" or "play [name of song]." Before you get in your car, you can also create a playlist of music that you want to listen to.

Android Auto requires Apple Music for Android 2.6.

Manage Family Sharing

You can set up a Family Sharing group — even if you're not an Apple Music subscriber. Just open the Apple Music app, tap the More button  , tap Account, then tap Manage Family.

From here, you can create an Apple ID for a child and set up a payment method for your family to use with purchases.
