How to play Apple Music on iPod nano/iPod shuffle?

With an Apple Music subscription, you can stream its 50 million songs on your iPhone, iPad, Android and Mac/PC etc. Offline playback allows you to download 100,000 songs.

Do Apple Music files work with iPod Nano?

I was thinking of getting an iPod Nano so I could free up a bit of space on my phone (I have 3.9 GB of music on my phone). And because I have Apple Music, the files that download to my laptop are in M4P format, so I wonder do they play well on iPod nano?

Unfortaneously, you can't access Apple Music on your iPod nano, ipod shuffle. When you try to sync offline Apple Music tracks to your iPod nano or shuffle, you will simply get a warning from iTunes that "apple Music songs cannot be copied to an iPod." What a pity!

However, the good news is that with the help of Apple Music converter software, you can easily convert DRM protected Apple Music M4P tracks to MP3 . Then you can easily transfer these MP3 songs to your iPod nano/iPod shuffle. Here I recommend Boilsoft Apple Music Converter. It is available for both Mac and Windows users.
