How to Use Apple Music Web Player to Listen to Music

Apple Music Web Player

The Apple Music web player, which came out as a beta in 2019, has been convenient for many users. It has pretty much the same functions as the app, allowing users to easily enjoy their Apple Music songs, playlists, albums, and more directly in the web browser without having to download the Apple Music App.

In this article, we’ll explore the Apple Music web player and its key features to give you a complete guide to using it for online playback. In addition, we’ll offer you a tip that lets you easily download Apple Music as local files to listen to or use offline.

Basic Features of Apple Music Web Player

From your phone to your computer, use a browser to enter the Apple Music web player’s main page, and you’ll be able to log into your Apple ID to start using it. Here are some of the basic features of the Apple Music web player that you need to know.

User-Friendly Interface

The first thing you’ll notice about the Apple Music web player is that the basic tags you need are displayed directly on the interface. You can search for music by typing the name of the song, album, or even artist in the search bar on the top left, or just click the function tag to search for good songs from other dimensions.

For You Tab

On the function bar, you will see a “For You” tab that displays music recommendations based on your listening preferences. The content in this tab is tailored to your music library, favorite styles, frequently listened to artists and favorite song collections.

Music Library

If you’re new to Apple Music, you’ll get a 30-day free trial. If you are already a regular user, then you just need to log into your Apple ID directly. Both these ways give you access to the entire Apple Music library based on your region/country for more than 100 million songs.

Personal Settings

On the Apple Music web player, you can easily manage the songs/playlists you add, create, or bookmark. Even better, you can also freely control the song playback, such as shuffling songs, repeating songs, or skipping to the next song.

Tip: Listen to Music Offline on Apple Music Web Player

While you can listen to songs on the Apple Music web player, it supports sound quality up to perhaps only 128 kbps. Also, you cannot download Apple Music songs on it, as the offline feature is only available on the Apple Music App. Even if you download Apple Music, the downloads can’t be saved as local files due to DRM protection. To break the limits, you’ll need help from third-party tools to remove DRM from Apple Music.

MuConvert Apple Music Converter is here for you. It has a built-in Apple Music web player for you to access your music library as usual, and allows you to convert Apple Music songs to MP3, M4A, WAV, and FLAC while maintaining the original sound quality (up to 320kbps) and preserving the ID3 tags. After conversion, you can easily transfer the downloads to any device or player for free offline playback.

Here are the steps to achieve this goal using the Apple Music web player embedded in MuConvert Apple Music Converter.

Step 1: Download and launch MuConvert Apple Music Converter on your Windows PC or Mac computer, and then log into your Apple ID.

Step 2: Activate the Apple Music Web Player and log in to your Apple ID. Go to the Playlist, Album, or Song you want to convert and click the “Click to add” button.

Step 3: You can customize the output parameters, such as output format (MP3 format is preferred), output sound quality, file name, etc. on the “Settings” page.

Step 4: Click “Convert All” to start the conversion process. Just wait for the conversion to complete and you can find the converted Apple Music songs in the “Finished” module or in the output folder you choose.

While Apple Music emphasizes the value of downloading music, its Web player lacks that feature and has some limitations. To overcome these problems, MuConvert Apple Music Converter will be a wiser choice since it allows you to convert and save Apple Music from its built-in Apple Music web player to common audio formats like MP3. After that, the downloads will be DRM-free to move to anywhere you want for further usage.
