If you have your music tracks saved in iTunes on your computer and you wish to transfer these tracks to your Samsung device, the following guide should teach you how to transfer iTunes music to Samsung so you can do that. Read on to find out various ways to do the job.
Due to all the great features that Apple has built into the app, iTunes is considered to be one of the best music management apps available in the market. The app offers some of the excellent features to help you play as well as manage your music tracks on your computer. What’s more, you can even transfer your music from iTunes to your Samsung device in case you wish to listen to your songs on your handheld phone.
While there is no built-in feature in iTunes that can help you transfer music from the app to your Samsung device, there are some third-party apps that enable you to do it. These apps let you get all of your iTunes music tracks on your Samsung Android device and the following guide shows all the possible methods.
Let’s see how to get music from iTunes to Samsung:
In the past few years, Google has launched a number of useful apps for Android devices and one of those apps is Google Music that has been developed for music lovers. The app allows you to listen to thousands of music tracks on your device.
One of the options in the app allows you to import your iTunes music library to the app and then you can install the app on your Samsung device to get all of your iTunes music tracks on your device. If you are not sure how you can do it, the following steps will teach you the entire procedure.
Step 1 Open a web browser on your computer and head over to the Google Play Store. Once you are there, click on the option that says Music in the left sidebar and then choose the My music option from the menu that expands on your screen.
Step 2 The website will take you to the Google Play Music section where you can manage all of your music settings. On the screen that opens, click on three horizontal lines at the top and then select the Upload music option.
Step 3 You will most likely be asked to download and install the Google Music Manager app on your computer. If you do not get any such prompt on your screen, head to the actual download link for the app and install the app on your computer. Launch the app once it is installed on your computer.
Step 4 Click on Continue on the first screen of the app. It uses your Google account to provide you with music services. Log-in with your account by entering in your Google email address and clicking on Next. Enter in your password on the following screen and click on Sign in.
Step 5 The app will ask where you keep your music files so it scans those folders and adds the files it finds to your Samsung device. Choose the first option that says iTunes and click on Continue.
Step 6 It will start scanning your iTunes music library to find all the available files. When it’s done, it will tell you how many songs and playlists it found. If you want to transfer all the iTunes music songs to your Samsung device, choose Upload all songs and playlists and click on Continue.
Selected songs will be uploaded to your Google Play Music account
You may then get the Google Play Music app on your Samsung device if you don’t already have it to access your uploaded music tracks.
There you go. That’s how you can use Google Music to transfer music from iTunes to a Samsung device.
If you do not have access to a high-speed and stable Internet connection and you would prefer an offline method to transfer your music, then you can use the traditional cable method to transfer music from iTunes to your Samsung device. It’s easy and only takes a few minutes.
What this method basically does is it copies music files from the iTunes folder and pastes them on the storage of your Samsung device. Following are the steps for the procedure.
Step 1 First connect your Samsung device to your computer and enable the data transfer mode. Enabling the mode is very important as you may have the charge only mode enabled by default.
Step 2 Open the iTunes music folder on your computer by heading to the following path and copy all the music files and folders available there to your clipboard.
If you are a Windows user, just go straight to the This PC > Music > iTunes > iTunes Media > Music folder.
If you are a Mac user, head to the Users > [username] > Music > iTunes > iTunes Media > Music folder.
Step 3 Open the storage of your Android device and paste all the files you have copied to your clipboard.
Once all the files have been copied over to your device, you can eject your device from your computer and you should find all the music files on your device. After making sure the transferring process is finished, you can use a music player or your file manager to get access to the newly added music tracks on your Samsung device.
As you can clearly see, both the methods shown above take quite a lot of efforts before your music files are transferred to your Samsung device. Things like copying music should not be that difficult and fortunately there is an app that understands it.
Enter AnyTrans for Android, an application that allows you to transfer data from your Android device over to your computer and vice versa. With this app on your computer, all you need to do is click on a few options and your entire iTunes music library will be copied over to your Samsung device. No complicated steps or anything like that.
