Technology is evolving at a rapid pace. Fifteen years ago, smartphones were not very popular yet. Fast forward to today, most users not only own smartphones, but they also have a variety of gadgets like smartwatches, music players, gaming consoles, etc.
The most common gadgets are the iPhone from Apple and Android phones from Samsung, Xiaomi, Motorola, etc. Many users across the globe own both an iPhone and an Android phone.
At some point, these users will desire to transfer the Apple Music they paid for on their Android phones. As such, these users will need to play M4P on Android. Since Apple Music is DRM-protected, playing M4P on Android devices is not straightforward. This article will look at several options to get our M4P files to play smoothly on Android.
If you're searching for ways to play M4P on Android and other non-Apple devices, there are two methods we can recommend. In this part, we will explore the first method. In Part 2, we will look at the 2nd method, which is also the better and more preferable option in our expert opinion.
The first method to convert M4P to MP3 is by burning your Apple Music files via iTunes to a CD/DVD and then ripping out the files from the CD back to your computer and saving them in MP3 format.
For the CD burning, you may use a physical CD/DVD via a CD/DVD drive on your computer. Note that the file formats that will be used when burning may not be predictable. As a result, some of the files you obtain after ripping may not still be playable on your Android device or other MP3 players.
Another option is to use software like TuneClone for performing a virtual CD burning. With this approach, ID3 tags and all other metadata will be preserved in the converted output. This program also supports batch conversion.
Aside from usability, this software also offers several settings for burning, like Preferred Speed and Disc Format. For the Audio CD disc format, you may set the Time Gap Between Songs. You may also include CD-Text.
However, similar to using a physical CD/DVD, you may still be presented with the problem of unplayable files because of the inherent DRM protection of Apple Music files, so we highly recommend going with the second method below to be able to play M4P on Android.
In this part, we will look into our recommended method to play M4P on Android.
