To access a shared iTunes library on another device, you need to set up Home Sharing on a Mac or Windows computer first. Then you can share, import, or even stream music from up to five computers.
How to share an Apple Music playlist
- Open the Apple Music app on your mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android) or Mac or PC.
- Tap “Playlists” in the “Library” tab.
- Scroll to find the playlist you wish to share. …
- Tap or click the three-dots icon at the top of the playlist page to open a pop-up menu.
In the iTunes app on your PC, choose Edit > Preferences, then click Sharing. Select “Share my library on my local network.” Select the items you want to share, or choose “Share entire library.”
To enable Home Sharing, open iTunes on your computer. Click on the File menu and scroll to Home Sharing. Then click on the option to “Turn On Home Sharing.” Now Click on the Edit menu and then select Preferences.
Click the My Account button (looks like a photo or monogram) in the top-right corner of the window, then click Edit. Below Shared Playlists, select the circle in the bottom-right corner of a playlist. A checkmark means that the playlist appears in your followers’ profiles as shared by you.
Can two people collaborate on a playlist on Apple Music?
Unlike with Spotify, you cannot create and collaborate on a playlist with friends in Apple Music. But although you and your friends can’t add songs from wherever you are, you can collect song recommendations from your friends and put them in an Apple Music playlist that you can share!
It has something to do with the version iOS you created the playlist on and the current iOS. To fix: -Create a new play list and name it whatever you want (it could be the same name of the list you are about to import). -Go to the playlist you want to share, tap the three dots, select Add to Playlist.
On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
- Go to Settings, tap your name, then tap Family Sharing.
- Tap your name.
- Make a note of which Apple ID is listed. …
- Tap Back to go back to Family Sharing.
- Tap Purchase Sharing and make sure that Share Purchases with Family is turned on.
- Tap Back, then tap Apple ID.
- Tap Media & Purchases.
You can have as many AppleIDs as you want (each does need an email address that is NOT already in use as an AppleID), and you can use a different AppleID for any Apple service (iTunes and App store, another for iMessage, another for iCloud, another for these forums,…).
Sharing Songs and Albums on Your iOS Device
- Launch the Music app on your iPhone or iPad.
- Find the song or album that you want to share.
- Tap the ellipsis (three dots) button to bring up the action menu.
- Tap Share Song…/Album… to bring up the Share Sheet and see your sharing options.
Tap or click the three-dots icon at the top of the playlist page to open a pop-up menu. Tap or click “Share Playlist…” Choose from the many options listed to share your playlist as you like. You can tap a recent contact at the top, use AirDrop with nearby devices, or choose to send by email or social media.
As long as you have both signed on to the iTunes library you are syncing with, and as long as you have both authorized that computer to your iTunes sign-on, you can share (or eliminate) any music you wish from your individual devices.
If you’re using Apple Music on Android, open the playlist in the app, tap the three dots on the right and choose Share Playlist. You can copy the link to it—ready to paste wherever you want—or pick one of the apps listed to share there directly.
