How to Play iTunes Apple Music on PS4

Question: Do you put on your Apple Music in the background while playing PS4 games? How do I play music on PS4 while playing a game? Is it possible to listen to music from iTunes and play games at the same time?

The PlayStation 4 (PS4) is an eighth-generation home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Hit the sweet spot on price (less than $300), tons of great games and performance, it becomes one of the most powerful consoles on the market. It's a beautiful system, with a sharp, slightly angled profile accented by a light bar that acts as a console status indicator.

Sony also offers a media player application for the PlayStation 4 console. With it, you can play videos, music and photos from a USB-connected drive or streamed from a home server. Now the problem is coming, can you enjoy your Apple Music tracks on PS4 freely? The answer is No.

Why We Can't Play Apple Music on PS4 Directly?

As we all know, Apple Music is a music streaming service developed by Apple Inc, which allows you to play your music library in the Music app on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android phone, Apple TV, Mac or PC. Although PS4 provides some of the streaming apps to let you enjoy music, TV shows and movies, Apple Music is not included.

On the other hand, Apple Music songs are AAC audio formats encrypted with FairPlay DRM protection, which prevents you streaming songs from Apple Music to PS4. Until Apple Music app comes to PS4, playing Apple Music on PS4 is just a pipe dream. Truthfully, I think that day is still very far off. But don't worry, here we would like to introduce you some other effective methods to enjoy Apple Music while playing PS4 games.
