Transfer Music from iTunes to Android

The songs you purchased through iTunes Store cannot be directly transferred to Android devices for playing.

If you switched to an Android phone or tablet and now you want to move songs previously purchased from iTunes onto the device, you may end in failure. The reason is that iOS and Android are two different mobile operating systems and use different media encoders. Generally, iOS users will download music from iTunes Store, while Android users from Google Play. To put iTunes songs onto an Android device, you need to remove iTunes DRM and convert them into Android compatible audio files. To get it done, you will turn to DRM removal software for help.

In this post, I’d like to share two DRM removal tools (Windows and Mac) to help you get iTunes music transferred to Android phone or tablet.

If you are using Windows OS, the best tool for you is DRM Music Converter from Aimersoft. Using DRM Music Converter, you will be able to remove DRM from iTunes music and convert iTunes music to MP3 with ease.
