Does Apple Music work on Chromebook? When I attempt to install the Apple Music app on my Samsung Chromebook, I got a message saying that the app is not compatible with my device. Is there any other way to get Apple Music on Chrome OS?

Despite the fact that Apple has already released an Android app for Apple Music a while ago, it doesn't support the Apple Music Android app on Chromebooks yet since there is no iTunes for Chromebook. That's why you'll get a notification that says your Chromebook is incompatible when you are trying to install the Apple Music app on Chromebook.

As it remains unknown when Apple Music will support Chromebook, you may be seeking for the alternative way to play Apple Music songs on Chromebooks. Have you had any luck so far? If not, the following article will share a quick solution to let you stream Apple Music to Chromebook easily.

How to Make Apple Music Playable on Chromebooks

According to Google's official statement, we can freely play almost all music files and videos on Chromebook, including 3GP, AVI, MOV, MP4, M4V, M4A, MP3, MKV, OGV, OGM, OGG, OGA, WEBM, and WAV. But when it comes to Apple Music songs, it becomes a totally different story. Why?

In fact, Apple Music songs are formatted and encrypted in M4P with DRM protection. In result, only selected Apple devices are authorized to play the DRM-ed M4P songs. Chromebooks, as we can see, are definitely left out. Therefore, in order to play Apple Music songs on Chromebook, removing off the DRM from Apple Music tracks would be a radical step to be taken.
