How do I play music from my Chromebook?
While the majority of Chrome users are recommended to use Google Play Music on their Chromebook to listen to music. When you have iTunes and Spotify, it changes everything. With Spotify and iTunes to hand, you can listen to music on your Chromebook.
Note that both Google Play Music and Spotify require a monthly subscription, with Spotify costing £9.99 per month and Google Play Music costing £7.99 per month.
We recommend using Google Play Music on your Chrome OS device to listen to music.
So, are Chromebooks and iTunes a good match? The answer is yes. If you already use iTunes, then importing your library to a Chromebook is a breeze. You just need to make sure that your music files are in the “Mastered for iTunes” format and converted to MP3.
If you do not have an iTunes account, then you will need to create one. I recommend signing up for a free trial of either Apple Music or Spotify. This way, you can test out your streaming service and listen to some of the music that is available on those platforms.
