Can You Use Apple Music on an iPod Shuffle?

Apple Music is a music streaming service. It offers over 45 million songs in its streaming library. Apple Music lets users select tracks to download into their device for listening offline. You can access it on all your iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch models, Android, Mac, and PC. Obviously, iPod Shuffle is not included.

When you try to sync offline Apple Music songs to an iPod Shuffle, you will see a disappointing message "Apple Music songs cannot be copied to an iPod." You are not allowed to use Apple Music on the iPod Shuffle. Why? That's because Apple needs WiFi to authenticate an Apple Music subscription, and the iPod Shuffle isn't built with WiFi capabilities. On the other hand, the downloaded Apple Music tracks are DRM-protected, which blocks any possibility to stream Apple Music on other unauthorized devices.
