How to Play Songs or Playlist & Use Apple Music App on Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S Gaming Console

Apple Music is one of the biggest music streaming platforms many users love. By signing up for its monthly subscription of $9.99 per month, you can access its music library, home to millions of songs, thousands of playlists, and podcasts on the web or through the app. Apple Music offers lossless sound and Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio with Apple exclusives and social listening tools. 

You can also upgrade your subscription to a Family plan for only $15 per month and a capacity of up to six members. Using the Apple Music app enables you to access your purchased songs on iTunes and use the same interface as any other smart TV platform.

Unfortunately, the Apple Music app for Xbox does not yet support lossless audio and Dolby Atmos Audio. However, it can stream up top 4K resolution if you want to watch music videos of your favorite artists.
