Q: "Does Apple Music have a web player?" To catch up to Spotify, Apple finally geared up a web player for Apple Music to play complete songs on the web. With the new web player release, subscribers can now sign-in with their Apple Music ID to play full songs on web without iTunes or Apple Music app installed. In case you are new to this service, I will introduce the complete guide to use the Apple Music web player in the following part.

However, since the Apple Music web player is still a beta site, users are not available to access some features, such as the smart playlists, flagship Beats 1 live broadcast and some original music/video content.

To solve the problem, I will recommend the other 2 alternatives to the Apple Music online web player, which also enables you to listen to Apple Music online without iTunes.

Therefore, other than using the Apple Music web player, you can convert Apple Music to local files by using AudFree Apple Music Converter.
