Apple’s iTunes software is a wonderful music player and organizer. If you have an Apple device such as iPhone 6, you can easily sync music from iTunes to iPhone and vice versa. However, what if you have an Android phone like OnePlus instead of iPhone 6? Can you sync iTunes music collection with your Android phone? Afterward, this post shows you some of the ways to do that.

One way to transfer your iTunes music collection from your desktop to Android phone is by manually copying the music files. This is actually easier than it sounds.

Transfer iTunes music to OnePlus 3 using Google Play Music

Google Play Music is one of our favorites. It provides cloud storage for up to 50,000 songs(when you first sign up, up to 20,000 songs), accessible from both your desktop and your phone, and, best of all, it’s compatible with iTunes. However, Google Play Music relies on the cloud, you have to download the songs from the cloud for offline access. But if you’re OK with that then you can’t go far wrong.

To sync iTunes music with Android phone, you need to download Google Music Manager (or Google Play Music for Chrome) onto your computer and the Google Play Music app on your Android phone OnePlus 3. Unlike AnyTrans it only uploads music to the cloud and doesn’t put it on your device.

The Google Play Music app is easy to set up. Once installed and logged in, you’re able to point Google Play Music to your iTunes Library. And then, up to 50,000 tracks can be stored online for free and synced to your Android devices as and when required.
