How to Listen to Apple Music on a Windows PC

iTunes Logo Hero - August 2020

If you subscribe to the Apple Music streaming music service, you probably usually listen on an Apple device such as a Mac, iPhone, or iPad. But you can also enjoy Apple Music on a Windows PC equally as well. Here’s how.

Method 1: Use the Apple Music Web Player

Apple has created a web-based music player with an interface similar to iTunes and the Music app that runs directly in your browser. To use it, simply open your favorite browser, then visit to get started.

Enter "" in your favorite web browser.

Once you have the site loaded, click the “Sign In” button, and you can log in using your Apple account information.

In the Apple Music web player, click the "Sign In" button.

As part of the login process, you might need to authenticate your login with a passcode on one of your Apple devices. Once you’re signed in, you can search, browse, or play music just as you would in iTunes or the Apple Music app.

When you’re done listening, bookmark the site and just close your browser. The next time you want to listen, click the bookmark and you’ll be right back in where you left off. And don’t forget—the web player works on Mac and Linux as well!

Method 2: Install iTunes

You can also access the Apple Music service from iTunes. While Apple has migrated to the Music app on its Mac platform, iTunes is still alive and well on Windows 10. If you don’t have iTunes already, you can download and install it from the Microsoft Store.

Once it’s installed, open “iTunes” and select Account > Sign In from the menu.

In iTunes for Windows, select "Account," then "Sign In."

Once you login, you’ll be able to access your iCloud music library and also your Apple Music subscription. To listen to Apple Music material, do a search or click “Browse.”

Browse or search in iTunes on Windows 10.

For example, if you click “Browse,” you can pick any artist on the Apple Music service and listen to the music almost instantly because the music will stream to iTunes from the internet—no downloads required.

Happy listening!
