How do I sync my PC iTunes songs to an Android smartphone? I run iTunes on a Windows 10 PC computer, and there are thousands of songs I have purchased. I would like to sync the songs from my PC iTunes to the Apple Music app on the Android smartphone so I can play songs offline and basically use my Android smartphone as an iPod. And I do not want to sign up for the Apple Music subscription service. - - User from Reddit

If you used to purchase and download songs on iTunes before Apple Music was launched, you might wonder how you can put purchased iTunes songs on your Android phone. Since Apple Music is now a subscription-based app, you don't have to buy music from it anymore. But what about those songs you've purchased before?

In the following parts, I'm going to show you how to sync iTunes music to Android and the best way to get your purchased iTunes songs on your Android device without an Apple Music subscription.

How to Transfer iTunes Music to Android

In this part, I will show you 2 ways to put iTunes songs on your Android phone.

1. Move iTunes Music to Android via USB

The easiest way to transfer your iTunes music to an Android phone is to manually put the music files from the computer to the phone. Here's how to do it:

1. Create a new folder on your desktop.

2. Copy the music files, then transfer them into the new folder.

3. Connect your Android device to your computer with a USB cable.

4. Navigate to your Android device storage on your computer and copy-paste or drag-and-drop the music folder.

2. Sync iTunes Music to Android with Apple Music

Before syncing iTunes music to your Android phone, you'll have to download Apple Music on your phone in advance. Then you'll have to log in with the same account you use on iTunes and then subscribe to Apple Music for 9.99$ a month.

And now you can sync iTunes songs to Apple Music on your Android phone:

1. Open iTunes on your computer and go to Edit > Preference.

2. Under the General tab, turn on iCloud Music Library and then click OK to save the change.

3. Open Apple Music on your Android phone, your iTunes music should be available on your device. Note that if you want to stream these songs with Apple Music, you'll have to subscribe to a plan even if you don't want to play songs on Apple Music.

Best Way to Get iTunes Music on Android

There are cases that some songs are still tagged as "protected" even if you have purchased them. These songs can't be played without the iTunes or Apple Music app, which could be troublesome when you want to play them on your Android phone if you haven't and don't want to subscribe to Apple Music. So how you can play these protected files just like other songs you've purchased?

With the ViWizard Apple Music Converter, you can download all your purchased songs on iTuned and remove the protection. Then you can put them on your Android phone and play on any player you have on your phone.
