    Hi. I just picked up my s8 yesterday ๐Ÿ˜. My package included 6 months free streaming from Apple music. My question is does anyone know if & how I can transfer music straight from my phone to my external hard drive? Any help would be much appreciated! Mikey

    Are these songs that you have actually purchased or just ones you stream?

    a mixture I guess. I have loads of albums on iTunes that I purchased when I had an iPhone that I would like to transfer. I take it I can't actually move music that I am streaming across?

    Streaming, no. The challenge with the services, including Google play music, is that even if you download the music to your device for offline play it's stored in such a way that you can't move it to another device for play. This is done for drm purposes...

    Streaming from Apple Music is usually DRM protected, so you can't copy it.
