Listen to Apple Music in apps

With an Apple Music membership, you can turn on additional features in apps on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Some apps offer more ways to interact with the music that you love—from discovering the next best artist to finding a new up-tempo playlist for a workout.

Apple Music features might vary by country or region.

Give apps permission to use your Apple Music membership

Apps might ask your permission to turn on Apple Music features. When an app prompts you for permission, tap OK to allow access to your library, playlists, and personal recommendations.

You must also have the Music app installed on your iOS device for these features to work. If you removed the Music app, you can redownload it for free. Go to the App Store, search for Apple Music, then tap the Download icon to the right of the app's name.

Turn an app's access to Apple Music on or off

You can individually control which apps have access to your Apple Music Membership: Go to Settings > Privacy > Media & Apple Music. You'll see a list of each app that has asked for permission, and you can turn an app's access to your membership on or off.
