Add and download music in iTunes on PC
As soon as you join Apple Music, you can add songs, albums, playlists and music videos from Apple Music to your iCloud Music Library, which is accessible from your PC, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch whenever you’re signed in to Apple Music.
After you add an item to your iCloud Music Library, you can download it to your computer or device to play at any time, even when you’re offline.
Note: Apple Music isn’t available in all countries or regions. See the Apple Support article Availability of Apple Media Services.
