Apple’s iTunes software is a wonderful music management program that gives you the ability to buy, download, and organize your digital music files. However, if you’re an Android user, you may find it difficult to transfer your iTunes music to your new device.
There are a few different ways that you can import your iTunes music into Android, and we’ll walk you through each one.
If you have an Apple Music subscription, you can use iTunes Match to access your music library on any device. iTunes Match will upload your music to the cloud, and you’ll be able to stream or download it from any supported device.
To use iTunes Match, open the Music app on your Android device and sign in with your Apple ID. Once you’re signed in, all of your music should be available for streaming or downloading. If you see a song that’s grayed out, that means that it’s not available in the iTunes store and can’t be uploaded to the cloud.
Google Play Music
If you don’t want to pay for an Apple Music subscription, you can use Google Play Music instead. Google Play Music is a free service that lets you upload up to 50,000 songs from your computer and stream them on any supported device. You can also buy songs from the Google Play Store and add them to your collection.
To get started with Google Play Music, download the app on your Android device and sign in with your Google account. Once you’re signed in, tap the “Upload Music” button and select the files that you want to upload. It may take a few minutes for your songs to appear in the app.
Manually Copying Files
If you don’t want to use either of those services, you can always copy your music files over manually. To do this, connect your Android device to your computer using a USB cable and open the folder where your iTunes files are stored. On a Windows PC, this will usually be in \Users\username\Music\iTunes\. On a Mac, it will be in /Users/username/Music/.
What you need
You can sync your iTunes music collection to your Android phone using the Google Play Music app. First, download the app on your phone. Then, sign in with the same Google account you used to purchase your music on iTunes. Once you’ve signed in, all of your purchased music should appear in the app. If it doesn’t, you can manually upload your iTunes library by selecting the “Upload songs to Google Play” option in the app settings.
Export your iTunes library
One of the best things about owning an Android device is how flexible it is. Unlike an iPhone, you can easily transfer music from your iTunes library over to your Android phone or tablet. Here’s how to do it.
First, open up iTunes on your computer and go to the “Library” section. From here, click on “File,” then “Library,” and then “Export Library.” This will export your entire iTunes library as a single XML file, which contains all of your playlists and song information.
Next, connect your Android device to your computer via USB. Once it shows up in Windows Explorer or Finder (on a Mac), simply copy over the XML file that you exported from iTunes. On your Android device, open up the Music app and go to the “Settings” menu. From here, tap on “Import & Export,” and then select “Import from SD Card.” Find the XML file that you copied over, tap on it, and wait for everything to be imported.
And that’s it! All of your music should now be available on your Android device. Enjoy!
Copy your iTunes library to your Android device
You can move your iTunes music library to an Android device by connecting the two devices and copying the files directly, or by using a third-party application to transfer the files for you.
Connect your Android device to your computer using a USB cable.
Open iTunes and select “Edit” from the menu bar.
Click the “Devices” tab.
Check “Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically.”
Eject your iOS device from iTunes.
Open the Music folder on your Android device. This will likely be in the Device Storage > Internal Storage > Music folder. If you can’t find it, create a new folder called Music in the Internal Storage directory.
Connect your iOS device to your computer with a USB cable and open iTunes.
Select your iOS device in iTunes.
Click the “Summary” tab if it isn’t already selected.
Check the “Manually manage music and videos” option under Options. This setting is required to enable manual management of music on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, which is necessary to allow you to transfer files from iTunes to your Android device without automatically syncing all of your content. If you don’t see this option, make sure that you’ve selected the summary tab for your iOS device as described in step 6 above. In some versions of iTunes, this option may be labeled as “Manually manage music.” Click Apply (or Sync) when prompted to apply these changes to your connected iOS device.
Your iOS device will now appear as a mass storage drive in File Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac). You can now copy any music files that you want from your computer into this folder on your Android device just as you would copy any other file type between storage devices
