If you’ve used an iPod, iPhone or iPad for a long time, then there are big chances to have your generous digital music collection tied up inside iTunes. This seems like a problem in case of buying a new Android device, but be sure that you’ll be able to listen to your music here as well, even if there is no iTunes for Android.
Do you want to learn how to transfer iTunes Library to your Android Device as well? That is why I am here for.
First of all, you can choose to import your iTunes music library to an Android device by manually copying the music to your new Android smartphone. However, if you do that, you should know from the start that the library on your Android device cannot stay in sync with the iTunes library, meaning that when you purchase new songs in iTunes, you’ll be in the situation of repeating the process. In these conditions, I don’t really find this as being a solution, but there is something else that you can do.
I am referring to Google’s own Play Music which lets you import your iTunes music library to the cloud and the procedure is really simple, as you’ll see in the steps from below. Uploading a music library to Google Play Music means that it’s accessible to all your devices and even more, there is another major advantage that you should be aware of: it takes up no storage space. The data is practically stored in the cloud, so you’ll need a data connection to stream the music and if this could be a problem, you can also download content to keep it stored locally for offline listening.
