Listen to Apple Music in apps and on websites

With an Apple Music membership, you can turn on additional music features in apps or on websites.

Some apps and websites offer more ways to interact with the music that you love — from discovering your next favorite artist to finding a new uptempo playlist for a workout.


Give apps and websites permission to access your Apple Music membership

Apps might ask you for 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.

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you must also have the Music app installed 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.

If you're using a third-party website, open your account settings and look for an option to connect your membership. You might have to sign in to the account that you use with the website.

Turn on or turn off access to Apple Music

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can control which apps have access to your Apple Music information:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap Privacy, then tap Media & Apple Music. You'll see a list of each app that has asked for permission. 
  3. Turn on or turn off any app's access to your membership.

For some apps, you might have to use the Apple Music app to turn off access instead. Open the Apple Music app, tap For You, then tap your photo or the My Account icon in the upper-right corner. Next to Apps with Access, tap Edit. Tap the remove button next to the app you want.

Control which apps access your Apple Music membership on your Android device

  1. Open the Apple Music app.
  2. Tap the menu button .
  3. Tap Account, then scroll down and tap Apps with Access. 
  4. Swipe left on the app that you want to remove, then tap Delete.

About explicit content

If you can't play explicit songs, you might have restrictions (parental controls) turned on for music on your device. To listen to explicit songs, turn restrictions off on any of your devices.

If restrictions are turned off on all of your devices, but you still can't play explicit songs, you might need to turn restrictions for music on then off again.

Learn more about using restrictions on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch or in iTunes on a PC.
