How to Play Apple Music on Kodi


Kodi is a powerful and free media player that supports most platforms such as Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, tvOS and Raspberry Pi to play movies, TV shows, music, live TV, radio, and more.

The official Kodi version does not contain any content whatsoever. This means that you should provide your own content from a local or remote storage location, DVD, Blu-Ray or any other media carrier that you own. Additionally Kodi allows you to install third-party plugins that may provide access to content that is freely available on the official content provider website.
