Moving to Android but don’t want to leave your sweet music collection behind? Don’t worry, you can transfer your iTunes files onto Android!

iTunes is great for organising all of your music, especially across all of your different Apple devices and is used across all of your Apple media such as Apple music and TV. Moving to an Android device brings a headache if you have a large quantity of music that you want to keep, it isn’t as easy as it should be but it is still possible to do.

Google Play Music

Instead of having to get all your music onto your computer and then transferring them, you can use Google Play Music using the cloud. Google Play Music requires an internet connection, due to it being a streaming service and cloud storage, however, you can ‘pin’ music that saves it to your local storage. Go to  Google Play Music and you will be given the option of importing your iTunes music, do this on your computer as you will have your whole iTunes library on hand and ready.

Computer transfer

You can do this the old-fashioned way, you can transfer all of your iTunes music onto your computer (put it into a spare folder). This is the easiest way to transfer the music from iTunes as it is very simple to do, it can be a bit time consuming if you have a large library. All you need to do is;

  • Transfer the iTunes music into the folder you have chosen
  • Connect your phone via USB
  • Go to the phone’s storage
  • Go into the music folder
  • Copy and paste from the iTunes folder
  • You can also drag and drop

I hope this has helped you transfer all of your music files onto your Android device, the steps are simple and do not involve using third parties or other apps. This is especially good for people who are concerned about their data being stolen as the fewer apps/programmes that have your files the better…
