Part 1. Why Can't You Add Apple Music to InShot Directly?

Apple Music is a streaming music service with more than 70 million songs to offer its subscribers. You will have no trouble finding the tune that meets your needs from it. Its membership services provide a variety of valuable features, such as the ability to stream songs from across the globe or to jam out to Beats 1.

On the other hand, Apple Music has also several significant limitations. That is, all music from Apple Music has protection, which prevents you from transferring songs downloaded from Apple Music to another location.

Consequently, InShot Video Editor will not allow you to import Apple Music tracks from the streaming library. Moreover, the Apple Music format is not supported by Inshot. In a nutshell, you cannot add Apple Music to InShot directly because of format and compatibility issues.
