"I was just wondering if there's any way to get Apple Music on my Chromebook, because I can't download iTunes."


Actually, there are many people who wonder to know how to listen to Apple Music on Chromebook. If you owned a Chromebook, maybe you have met the same question like above. Chromebook is a lightweight and flexible laptop that is good for working or learning. But the only minor is that iTunes for Chromebook downloading is not available, nor access to Apple Music. So, it means you cannot listen to Apple Music songs on Chromebook. But that's why? Is there a way to stream Apple Music on Chromebook?

Part 1. The Reason of Apple Music Not Working on Chromebooks

Even if Chromebook supports running Android apps from the Play Store, and Apple already has an Android app for Apple Music, they do not support their Apple Music Android App on Chromebooks. If you try to install the Apple Music app on your Chromebook, you will get a notification that says your Chromebook is not compatible. This is the essential reason you can't ignore.


Google clearly claims that users can play music files and videos on Chromebook or through the web and they can add music to Google Play Music library. Does this mean you can transfer iTunes music to Chromebook for playback? Definitely no! Chromebook supports file formats including 3GP, AVI, MOV, MP4, M4V, M4A, MP3, MKV, OGV, OGM, OGG, OGA, WEBM, and WAV. However, Apple Music songs are formatted in M4P which is encrypted with DRM for protecting copyright. Obviously, M4P is not included in the supported file formats of Chromebook. Then, what should you do to deal with such issue? It's easy if you try to convert M4P to MP3 which can play on Chromebook smoothly.
