Apple Music boasts over 70 million songs in its catalog, but even then, you would occasionally run into instances where you’re unable to find a song that you recently listened to somewhere else. Whether it’s not available due to a region lock or any other reason, you’d either need to resort to other platforms for streaming it or purchase the song and download it to your computer. If you took the latter route, you can import the song to iTunes and make it accessible on all your Apple devices with iCloud Music Library.
Are you keen on learning what you need to do? We got you covered. Here, we’ll be discussing exactly how to add songs from a PC to your iCloud Music Library.
How to Add Songs from PC to iCloud Music Library
Before you get started, it’s important to keep in mind that iCloud Music Library is a feature that’s available only for users who’re subscribed to Apple Music or iTunes Match. So, without further ado, let’s check out the steps:
- Open iTunes for Windows, and click on the “File” option from the menu bar located below the playback controls as shown below.
- Now, choose “Add File to Library” to proceed.
- This will launch the File Explorer on your computer. Browse and select the song file using explorer and click on “Open” to import the song into iTunes.
- Now, if you look for the song in your library, you’ll find a dotted cloud icon next to the song name. This indicates that the song isn’t in your iCloud Music Library yet. To fix this, click on the triple-dot icon next to it.
- You’ll get access to more options. Click on “Add to iCloud Music Library” and wait for a few seconds for the song to upload to iCloud.
That’s it. Once complete, you will no longer see the cloud icon next to the song’s name.
You can repeat the above steps to add other songs to your iCloud Music Library too. Once uploaded, you can remove the local song file that’s stored on your computer. The uploaded song will also be immediately available on all your Apple devices for streaming.
