Although iTunes is retired on Mac, on PC, it is still working well. iTunes is a multi-purpose desktop application. Besides music, you can also enjoy movies, TV shows, audiobooks, and radio podcasts on iTunes. Simply go to the iTunes official website or Microsoft Store and download the latest iTunes on your PC. Log yourself in and then you can stream Apple Music to your PC.

1) In the Library, you can find your playlists and purchased music.

2) For You is a section you go to when you don't know what to listen to and Apple Music will randomly recommend songs to you according to your past listening history.

3) In Browse, you can find the most trending music and hit songs right at the moment.

Method 2 Listen to Apple Music on Web Browser

If you don't use the computer to listen to Apple Music too often, or you just don't want to waste your computer storage for iTunes, which is a cumbersome application, you can listen to Apple Music via Web Player. Lucky as you, Apple Music wasn't available for the web player until months ago.

Now you can easily listen to Apple Music on the web player via any browser and any operating system. All you need to do is go to beta.music.apple.com and log in to your Apple Music account. The web version has fewer features than iTunes. It focuses on streaming Apple Music and there is no Library section.

Method 3 Listen to Apple Music on Other Music Players

You may wonder if there is any way you can get your Apple Music songs played on your favorite media players, say MediaMonkey, MusicBee, foobar2000, or Clementine.
