Jim Rossman: There are a few ways to listen to your music from the cloud


Published in Science & Technology News

Apple Music

If you subscribe to Apple Music, you can upload up to 100,000 songs to Apple's servers. Then, when you are logged into Apple Music on other devices, you can access those songs.

Individual files can be no larger than 200 megabytes.

To upload your songs, open the Music app on your Mac, then go to the Music menu and choose Preferences and then the General tab.

Click to put a check in the box to Sync Library. Once synced, Apple Music will show all the music you've added, purchased and uploaded. The music will appear on your other devices after syncing with the cloud.

This option requires a subscription to Apple Music, which costs $4.99 per month for students, $9.99 per month for individuals and $14.99 per month for a family account that can be shared among six family members.
