I am DJing a wedding tomorrow and got the playlist sent through Apple Music. I have an Apple Music account and can play the songs on iTunes, but not when using Djay pro or cross DJ. Is there a way to DJ with songs from Apple Music on a third-party DJ app?

Unlike Spotify, Apple Music hasn't integrated with other third-party DJ apps to allow music lovers and DJs to create more fun with its tracks.

Apple Music is among those music services that provide millions of songs to music lovers, and it boasts to have more than 70 million songs in its library. And a large music collection is no doubt a must-have for a DJ. If Apple Music is available for those aspiring DJs, that must be a huge improvement in their setups.

So in the following parts, we'll cover how to DJ with Apple Music on third-party DJ apps. Now let's get started.

Part 1. Some Powerful DJ Apps
Part 2. DJ App that Works with Apple Music
Part 3. Convert Apple Music to Any DJ Apps
Part 4. DJ with Apple Music Songs Offline on DJ Apps

Some Powerful DJ Apps

You don't need a hardware DJ setup to become a DJ now. Yes, you can find a dozen of DJ apps that work on various devices and start DJing right in front of the screen. Here are some of the most powerful and noted DJ apps.

DJ Apps that Work with Apple Music

All of the DJ apps are powerful and popular among DJs. Are there any DJ apps that work with Apple Music?



MegaSeg is a DJ app that works on the Mac system. No matter you have a MacBook, iMac, or Mac Mini, MegaSeg is a perfect DJ app for you.

MegaSeg has been the first app that can DJ with Apple Music songs. Tracks you add to your iTunes library from Apple Music and your local music can be both loaded on MegaSeg with the internet on. Also, you can download songs from Apple Music and load them on your iTunes library, so you can play them without having to go online.

But the problem is currently those Apple Music tracks simply don't show in MegaSeg, meaning you can't play them there, even if you download songs from Apple Music with a subscription. Since each downloaded Apple Music song comes with protection from Apple, you can't directly apply them to any unauthorized usage.

Does Other DJ Apps Work with Apple Music?

Some of the well-known DJ apps like Serato, djay Pro, RekordBox, and Traktor have integrated with music services such as Tidal or Spotify, but not with Apple Music. If you're going to DJ with Apple Music in these apps, the only way is to download them to your device and upload them as local files. And in the next part, I'm going to show you how to do that.

How to DJ with Apple Music on Any DJ Apps

Since you can't get DJ apps for Apple Music currently, the only way is to remove the protection from each Apple Music track. Normally, when you're an Apple Music subscriber and download songs from the service, you can get the downloaded files on your device. But when you want to take them elsewhere and play them, Apple won't allow you to do this.
