Why Do I Fail to Play Apple Music with Serato DJ?

At present, Serato DJ only supports streaming music from very limited platforms, including SoundCloud, Beatsource, Tidal, and Beatport, without Apple Music included. So before Serato DJ adds support for Apple Music, you can’t connect these two services and play Apple’s streaming music in Serato DJ directly. Even if you are a subscriber of Apple Music and get the right to download its songs offline, these downloads are protected by DRM, which can’t be outputted or added to third-party platforms for playing and use.

However, for those who purchased Apple Music from iTunes Store, because they are saved in DRM-free M4A formats, you are completely free to download them as local files, and then import them to Serato DJ to mix and play. But for streaming Apple Music songs, you need third-party help if you want to add them and play in Serato DJ.
