Apple Music and Family Sharing

With a Family Membership to Apple Music, families of up to six people can enjoy all of the benefits of Apple Music.

Each member of an Apple Music Family Membership gets unlimited access to the entire Apple Music catalog, music recommendations tailored to their personal music tastes, and access to their own iCloud Music Library, which makes it possible for them to listen to their music on all of their favorite devices.

Apple Music features might vary by country or region.

About Family Membership and Family Sharing

To use a Family Membership with other people in your family, set up Family Sharing using a supported device. When you set up Family Sharing, you become the family organizer. If you don't want to be the family organizer, ask someone else to set up Family Sharing. 

If you've already set up Family Sharing and joined Apple Music with a Family Membership, you can add new people to your Family Membership by inviting them to be a part of your family group.

Sign up for an Apple Music Family Membership

When you sign up for Apple Music from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC, or an Android phone, you can choose an Individual (1 month), Individual (1 year), Family, or Student Membership.

If you haven’t purchased your membership yet, join Apple Music. If you want a Family Membership, make sure to choose Family Membership when you join.

If you selected an Individual or Student Membership when you first joined, you can change to a Family Membership on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC, or your Android phone.

Invite your family

After you set up Family Sharing, you can invite additional family members to join your family group. After the invitees accept your invitation, each member of your family group will have access to your Apple Music Family Membership.

You can also invite additional family members inside the Apple Music app on Android.
