Google Drive, formerly Google Docs, is a file storage and synchronization service created by Google and was launched in 2012. It allows users to store files in the cloud, share files, and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with collaborators. Google gives every user 15 GB of online storage space, which is shared across three of its most-used services, Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos. Users can obtain more storage on payment of a monthly subscription. With an average of 240 million active users each month world-wide, and over one million individual or organizational paid users, Google Drive has the right to claim top status in the market.

As one of the largest icloud storage platforms in the world, Google Drive is used by a huge amount of users to backup their videos, music files, docs, etc and share with others. However, it doesn't support all kinds of media content currently, such as the offline songs you downloaded from Apple Music store. But don't worry. The following article will show you the workaround to help you easily upload Apple Music tracks to Google Drive for backup and future use.

DRM Prevents us from Transferring Apple Music to Google Drive...

Before adding the Apple Music songs to your Google Drive, the most important thing you need to know is that Apple Music is protected by an algorithm known as DRM which is created by Apple to control what you do with the streaming music content. Because of the DRM copy right protection, you are limited to play the Apple Music online music or offline tracks on devices related to your Apple account only. You can't upload the Apple Music songs to Google Drive or other devices at all. And once you cancel the subscription to Apple Music, the downloaded streams will become unusable automatically. If you want to make the Apple Music songs DRM-free, then you'll need the help of a third-party DRM removal tool to help you remove the DRM protection from Apple Music M4P songs. Go ahead to find the answer.
