Will Discord have Apple Music integration similar to Spotify? Now you can connect your Spotify account to Discord and you can share with your friends the music you are listening to at the moment on Discord. Many people including me have been asking for this and we really want the cooperation between Apple Music and Discord.

- An Apple Music user from the Apple community

When you are using Discord, usually you tend to share the songs you are listening to with friends. Currently, you are able to play Spotify on Discord. But for other streaming music services like Apple Music, Discord still does not have any cooperation with them, in spite of the fact that plenty of users upvote for the coming of Apple Music. Do we have any other methods to connect Apple Music to Discord?

When you look for an answer in Discord forum, Apple community, or Reddit, you always get a negative result. In fact, there is a method for you to solve this problem that worth trying.

Part 1. Connect iTunes to Discord with iTunes Rich Presence

Unlike Spotify, which offers native integration with Discord for sharing your music preferences, Apple Music does not have a direct option to connect with Discord. However, there are alternative programs like iTunesRichPresence (for Windows) and iTunesDiscordRP (for both Windows and Mac) that allow you to stream Apple Music to Discord, filling this gap.

Note: These tools may have occasional compatibility issues with iTunes or Discord updates.

For Windows 10: Using iTunesRichPresence to Connect iTunes to Discord

  7. Run the iTunesRichPresence.exe application.
  8. Inside the iTunesRichPresence app, go to the "Settings" section.
  9. Enable the "Run on Startup" option. This ensures that iTunesRichPresence automatically connects iTunes and Discord every time you start your PC, without needing to manually reopen the app.
