djay is a DJ application for everyone. I said that because whether you are a beginner or a pro, you can use djay to mix music and create beats. And the most important thing is that djay has great compatibility to brag about. Over the years, djay keeps releasing applications designed for Windows, Macintosh, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android one by one. It is even available on Apple Watch early since the year of 2015. This basically covers all we can think of. You have to say, djay is doing everything it can to get closer to the users.

Does djay Pro work with Apple Music? Pitifully, djay is not so perfect for Apple Music users. Actually, Apple Music release no API for any third-party DJ software or app. Algoriddim, the developer of djay, makes it very clear on the official website. Although djay is seamlessly integrating with iTunes, it doesn't make any better for those who stick with or only with Apple Music. If you really don't want to abandon Apple Music for mixing in djay, here we offer a quick solution for how to use Apple Music with djay Pro.
