Since Apple created the application in 2001, many features have come to fruition. iTunes is available to Microsoft users on the Windows operating system.

Is iTunes free?

People can download iTunes for free with Windows and Chromebook operating systems. Upon installation, users make an ‘Apple ID’ by choosing their username and password; this acts as their login and saves their recorded preferences and purchasing data.

Within the app, consumers can purchase media: songs, albums, movies, episodes, and audiobooks; there are an array of free podcasts in the iTunes store. After users download content, the media is transferred into their iTunes Library – which can be located as the first option on the upper menu bar or within the left column in the ‘Songs’ tab.

Apple offers an optional subscription plan where the iTunes community can access any song and curated playlist: Apple Music. Initially, Apple gave consumers access to Apple Music for free for a trial period. When the trial period concludes, the subscription fee is renewed monthly; there are different payment plans: student, individual, and family.

To access Apple Music, locate the ‘For You’ button; following the directions after clicking ‘Try it Now,’ people will be subscribed. Features like the ability to read lyrics and have an ad-free experience while listening to songs are available with the subscription. Apple allows Windows users to sync any iOS device together within iTunes on the PC.

Within the ‘For You’ tab, subscribed accounts are updated weekly with playlists customized to listeners’ music tastes; this feature is incredible for discovering new music. The Apple Music community will have access to what their friends listen to by following them. Consumers receive artist, genre, and new release recommendations within this tab.

The ‘Browse’ tab includes international charts; within this global nav, the Apple Music team generates playlists of the top songs in countries: France, Spain, Canada, Japan, etc. This music app offers the ‘Mood’ section, in which various playlists and stations are associated with each mood: ‘Chill,’ ‘Fitness,’ ‘Party,’ etc.

Video and radio shows are accessible within the ‘Browse’ tab, along with searchable music videos, and categorized by genre. Audiobooks can be found with the ‘Search’ bar or within the ‘Browse’ tab, along with unreleased albums featured as ‘Coming Soon.’

The ‘Radio’ tab houses broadcast radio stations that users can listen to live: NPR, ESPN, iHeartRadio, etc. Celebrity radio stations can be found within the tab. When there’s a song that listeners prefer, they can click the ‘…’ option near the song’s title and choose ‘Create Station’ to generate a station with similar themes.

Can you still download iTunes?

While Microsoft users have access to iTunes, people with Apple devices like the Mac, iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch can only access the Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and Apple TV app within the app store. Apple discontinued iTunes for Mac OS and iOS users, while Windows and others can still easily access various media within iTunes.

Within the user interface, the left column houses the consumers’ music library, where they can view their recently added media, artists, albums, songs, genres, music videos, and any synced devices. Above the left column is a phone icon; within this button, people can sync their Apple iPhone, watch, iPod, or iPad to set up the devices.

To play music, double-click on a song within the ‘Songs’ tab; a section with the song’s title, artist, album, and the ability to shuffle or repeat songs will be accessible at the top of the window. To the left of the songs’ information, listeners can go back, forward, play, and stop songs; the volume is adjacent to the control buttons.

Compatible movies can be played within iTunes: H.264 and MPEG-4. Additionally, people can purchase movies, tv shows, and music videos from the iTunes store; the ability to rent movies is available; to access the videos, double-click on the media or press the play button after selecting the title. The video will play in a resizable pop-up window.

Consumers can access the video’s controls by moving the pointer on the video’s window. From left to right, there is the volume, Airplay, previous video, reverse, play/pause, forward, next video, chapter selector for movies, subtitles, picture in picture, and full-screen buttons.

The ‘Airplay’ button allows wireless connection and streaming abilities between iTunes and Apple devices. If media comes with subtitles, additional audio, and closed captioning, that is accessible through the ‘Subtitle’ icon on the video’s screen. The picture in picture is useful for multitasking, or users can enjoy the media full screen.

Alternative applications

Both Spotify and Amazon Music are media-playing platforms. While listeners must pay for Amazon Music, Spotify provides a freemium platform, allowing anyone to download and use the application for free. iTunes is incomparable as the platform can only play purchased media, whether imported from a CD or bought within the iTunes store, although the app is free.

Given that Spotify gives the community access to a grand variety of music for free and has features like daily mixes and nearby concerts, the platform is preferable over iTunes and Amazon Music.

Organise, discover, and purchase music.

With a straightforward and easy-to-use interface, iTunes allows people to organize their media into playlists, edit file information, and learn which content to purchase. The free application is excellent for storing consumers’ music, movies, tv episodes, music videos, audiobooks, and playlists.

To ensure the best user experience, Apple creates iTunes updates for Windows and other users. To access these updates, choose ‘Help’ on the iTunes interface and click ‘Check for Updates.’ The iTunes community can update to the latest version by following the instructions. If more help is necessary, then users can contact Apple Support.
