Three Ways to Play Apple Music Everywhere

1. Use VPN to Switch Country

Normally, you’ll be unable to use the Apple Music app when you move to a new country. And if you don’t want to change your Apple ID, you can install a VPN that comes with a server from your original country. In this way, you don’t have to change anything to your Apple Music account. When you’re using Apple Music in a different country, just open the VPN and switch the server to your previous country, all songs in your library can be easily played.

But the downside of this method is that you have to pay extra money for a stable VPN and it uses your monthly phone data when you stream Apple Music online.

2. Download Apple Music Songs in Advance

Since changing the country of your Apple account will delete all your previous downloaded songs, so you have to re-download them to the device that you’ll use in the future. After finishing the country changing process, these downloaded songs can be viewed and played on Apple Music and iTunes.

However, in some countries that don’t allow Apple Music to be run, you will not be able to open the Music app, let alone stream these songs.

3. Play Apple Music Everywhere via ViWizard

What’s the best way to stream Apple Music abroad? Download songs to your device and stream them offline with your local music player. This won’t cost you extra money to buy a VPN. And you don’t have to worry about whether the Apple Music app can be open in the new country or not, because they can be played on any given player.

With the ViWizard Apple Music Converter, you can download all your favorite songs to your computer. No Apple Music app or iTunes needed to play these songs after the conversion, you can take them to any country and stream them with no restriction.
