Compared with going out to exercise, more and more people choose to do some exercise at home by exploring treadmills or other fitness equipment. And Peloton bike is, of course, one of them.

Peloton is an indoor exercise bike with a large touch screen display and built-in speaker. It is great to listen to music while exercising. If you have a selection of "Liked" songs during a Peloton workout, you can sync them to music services such as Spotify or Apple Music easily. But if you wish to play music in your library from Apple Music, you'll want a workaround.

Part 1. How to Connect Peloton to Apple Music

Are you ready to supercharge your Peloton workouts with your favorite Apple Music playlists? Let's walk through the steps to get your Peloton connected to Apple Music. Picture this: You've just finished setting up your Peloton bike or treadmill. You grab your phone and open the Peloton app, tapping on your username. With a couple more taps, you find yourself in the "Music" section, eager to connect your Apple Music.

  3. Now, let's head to the music settings. Tap on "Music" in the panel on the left side of the screen.
  4. In the right panel, tap on "Connect." This action will open a window with various music services.
  5. Find "Apple Music" from the list of services and tap on "Connect" next to it.
  6. You'll be prompted to sign in with your Apple ID and password.
  7. If you have two-factor authentication enabled, you'll receive a code on your device.
  8. Enter the code when prompted to proceed.
  9. After signing in, you'll see a prompt asking for permission to access your Apple Music account.
  10. Tap on "Allow" or "Agree" to grant Peloton access to your Apple Music library.

Now, let's put this into action. You're all set up on your Peloton bike, ready for a challenging ride. As you select the perfect Apple Music playlist for today's session, you can already feel the motivation building. With each beat, you're ready to crush those intervals, push through the climbs, and conquer the miles ahead.

Part 2. How to Sync Peloton with Apple Music

Peloton has introduced a fantastic new feature called "Track Love." This feature allows you to save any song that you hear during classes, making it easy to add them to your personal playlists for listening anywhere. A new "Music" section has been added to your profile page, where you can see all the tracks you've saved.

We understand that you want to sync the music you've liked during your Peloton workouts to your personal playlists. Luckily, Peloton allows you to do just that. When you like music during a workout, those songs will automatically populate into a Peloton curated playlist. Let's sync these Peloton tracks with your Apple Music library.


You should already have access to the "Track Love" feature, which is usually available when you activate it for the first time or under your profile settings post-activation. Here's how to save your favorite tracks:

  1. During a Peloton class, choose the "Music" button on the screen.
  2. You'll notice a heart icon next to each song playing in the class.
  3. Simply tap the heart icon next to any song you like, and it will be saved to your personal playlist.
  4. To review your saved tracks, visit your profile page on the bike, then navigate to "Music" > "My Peloton Music by [your_username]."


Let's now sync these liked Peloton tracks to your Apple Music library for easy access and organization:

  1. Switch over to the Apple Music app on your device.
  2. Tap on the "Library" tab located at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Scroll down within your Library until you see the "Playlists" section.
  4. Look for "My Peloton Music By [your Peloton username]."
  5. Tap on your Peloton playlist to open it.
  6. Here, you'll find all the songs you've saved from your Peloton workouts neatly organized.

After seamlessly linking your Apple Music account, you switch gears to the Apple Music app. Scrolling through your library, you spot "My Peloton Music By [your Peloton username]." Excitedly, you tap on it, revealing a curated collection of high-energy tracks from your past Peloton rides.

Pro Tips:

  • Removing songs from your personal Apple Music playlists will not affect your Peloton playlist.
  • If you choose to share the Peloton playlist with others, they will receive a copy of the playlist with your curated tracks.

Part 4. How to Fix Apple Music Won't Sync with Peloton

Let's say you've synced your Apple Music playlists to Peloton, but they're not showing up. There might be a few reasons why. Here's how to troubleshoot and fix the issue:


peloton private profile

  1. Ensure you're using the same Apple Music account that you used during the workout.
  2. Check if you've used a different Apple ID with Apple Music. The playlist will only appear on Peloton if it matches.
  3. Verify that your Peloton profile is set to public. Private profiles will hide playlists as well.

Since the playlists still aren't appearing, you may need to perform a factory reset on your Peloton device:

Note: Performing a factory reset will erase all data and detach your Membership. Proceed with caution.

  1. On your Peloton device, go to "Settings" > "System" > "Factory Reset."
  2. Confirm the factory reset. This will restore your Peloton device to its original settings.
  3. After the factory reset, you'll need to reconnect your Peloton Guide remote.
    1. Remove the batteries from your remote.
    2. Press and hold the center button on the remote for 15 seconds.
    3. Place the batteries back into the remote.
  4. Check if the remote is now in pairing mode.
    1. Follow the on-screen instructions to pair the remote with your Peloton device.
    2. Go through the activation process again to use your Peloton.

Now, after going through the activation process again, you check your Peloton playlists, and voila! Your Apple Music playlists are now visible and ready to use during your workouts.

Pro Tips:

  • Ensure your Peloton device has a stable internet connection during the syncing process.
  • Sometimes, it can take a few minutes for songs to appear on third-party sites like Apple Music due to caching. Give it some time and check again later to see if your playlists show up.
  • If a song is not available in the iTunes Store, it will appear greyed out in your playlist on Apple Music. Unfortunately, you won't be able to access these tracks in your Apple Music library.
  • If the issue persists, you can reach out to Peloton support for further assistance.

Extra Tip: How to Connect Peloton to Apple Watch/AirPods
