Part 3. How to Play Apple Music Offline Freely on Chromebook

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 different story. Why?

Like other streaming services, Apple Music only allows users to play Apple Music offline during the subscription time. Because Apple Music songs are formatted and encrypted in M4P with DRM protection. And the downloaded Apple Music can only be played on the Apple Music app. You cannot play it on other players. So, if you want to play Apple Music offline freely. You will need an Apple Music converter.
