How much you know about Squeezebox? Have you ever used it to play your music lists? Squeezebox refers to a network music player of Logitech. Actually, Squeezebox is not responsible for streaming music itself but is helped by the "Squeezebox Controller App", which can be used to control the music to be played on Squeezebox devices. And in "App Gallery", you can find some music services such as Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, etc. So, what if I want to play Apple Music on Squeezebox devices?
