If you have an Apple TV, you can access your Apple Music subscription on your TV as well thanks to the Cupertino based company bringing the Music app to your TV.

To enable Apple Music on your TV, head to Settings > Apps > Music on your TV and turn on the iCloud Music Library option. When the option is enabled, you will find your Apple Music tracks on your Apple TV.

How to Use Apple Music on Android

If you have a device that does not belong to the Apple ecosystem, say an Android device, you can still access the music streaming service on your device. Apple has developed an app to help you access your favorite music tracks on your Android device.
