Here’s how to get Apple Music on Android
For those that don’t want to use Spotify.
Okay, so Apple is known for keeping its walled garden approach with much of its software working only on its own hardware, but some services have managed to jump over that wall. That’s likely because Apple is making a big push into services, and that only makes sense if you can use them on all your devices.
Yes, you can get Apple Music on your Android phone
It couldn’t be simpler to get Apple Music up and running on your Android device. After all, it’s on the Google Play Store. Just a few seconds of downloading will get you up and running, as long as your device is running Android 5.0 or later.

- Open the Google Play Store on your phone or desktop browser and search for Apple Music
- It’ll be the first result, just make sure you don’t accidentally tap on any of the third-party apps
- Tap Install on the store page for the Apple Music app
- Tap on the Apple Music icon once it’s installed to open the app
