Why Are Some Songs Not On Apple Music?
- Richard Rodriguez
If a song isn’t now accessible on Apple Music, it may be grayed out in the Apple Music app. This happens when a song or album isn’t supported by Apple Music at the moment. The following are some of the reasons why:
- Some tracks from an album could be released in advance by the album’s artist or by the content provider, but not all of the songs. If you add the complete album to your library, the tracks will be accessible to you as they are released during the course of the album’s release.
- It’s possible that musicians and other content producers will make edits to or delete songs from Apple Music’s library. Conduct a search on Apple Music to see whether or not the music in question is offered under a different moniker or storage location. If this is the case, you will need to add the music to your collection before it will no longer be grayed out.
- It is possible that the music is not sold in your nation or area
- if this is the case, the title of the song will display in gray font when you search for it in Apple Music.
- It is possible that you have limitations enabled for your device if an explicit music is muted in your playlist. You can disable limits on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch by using Screen Time, and you can do the same thing on your Mac by using Screen Time. You also have the option to include the unaltered version from Apple Music in your collection.

Why can’t I find or play a song on Apple Music?
In the event that you are unable to locate or play a song: Check to see whether the music was imported from Apple Music if you are unable to find or play it. It’s possible that the song is only waiting to be uploaded if it originated from another source.
- Follow the instructions here: Start up your Mac or PC and ensure that it is properly connected to the Internet.
- Launch either the Music app or iTunes on your Windows computer.
- Maintain an open session of either the Music app or iTunes for Windows so that your collection may complete the upload.
- If there is an ineligible icon next to a music, you must first remove the song from your collection before you may add it again.
If there is still an ineligible icon next to a music, then it is not possible to upload that particular song. If a song is grayed out, it means that Apple Music is either in the process of uploading the music, the song is no longer accessible, or the song has not yet been placed into the library.
Why is iTunes not syncing All my Music?
It indicates in the library that the album is on my phone, but when I look for the song or album, it is not there. I have over 3,200 songs in my library, but not all of the albums sync. I have attempted several times to remove all of the music and re-sync to the device, but none of those methods has been successful.

If some of the music in your iTunes library is not syncing with your iPhone or other devices, you can check this one thing before making changes (s). There are a number of reasons why iTunes could not be synchronizing all of your music, one of which is that iTunes might not be able to find part or all of your music.
- Launch iTunes and navigate to the Music Library menu to check this out.
- Have a look at your Song list.
- If you browse down your list of songs and see that some of the songs have a “!” in front of their titles (see the screen image below for an example), this indicates that iTunes is unable to identify the actual music file.
This suggests that at one point in time, iTunes was aware of the location of these songs; but, for some unknown reason, the music files have been relocated to a different location (or have been erased), and now iTunes is unable to identify them. If you believe that the music marked with exclamation points could still be located someplace on your hard drive, you can change the file path for those songs in iTunes by following the procedures that are outlined in the following section: Choose a track that has an exclamation point (!) in front of its name on iTunes. To view song information in iTunes, select Edit > Song Info. To find a file in iTunes, click the Locate file button. You can try to play your material by pointing iTunes to the location of the track that has a “!” on it if you know where it is. Use the Windows File Explorer that appeared when you chose Locate to search for the music you are missing. The Search box can be found in the top left-hand corner of the Windows File Explorer window. If you do not know the location of the song you are missing, use this method. Make certain you accomplish the things listed below: Start your search on the disk you suspect holds your missing music by navigating Explorer to your C: drive or another drive that you believe contains your music. In the Search box, type the title of the music on its entirety, just as it appears in iTunes. Explorer will look for the title you specified. As soon as you find the music that was missing, the exclamation point next to it should go, and you should be able to play it within iTunes. Once iTunes has identified the music that is missing from your library, it will ask you whether you want to add any additional songs that it finds at the same area to your iTunes library if it finds other songs there. If you select “Yes,” iTunes will search for any music that aren’t currently in its database. This process may take a few minutes (depending on how many songs are involved). Once iTunes has completed, any “!” that was shown in front of a song that it has located will be removed. It is possible that you may need to repeat this method many times in order to discover all of your missing tracks if the songs are spread out in different areas. After you have told iTunes where all of your songs are stored, you should find that all of them are immediately accessible to be synced with your device (s). After that, you’ll be able to synchronize your device with your music collection (s). Originally published on August 5, 2018, at 12:07 PM
Why can’t I upload songs to my iTunes library?
Check the songs in your iTunes library to see if there are any that cannot be uploaded. Launch iTunes on your Mac or PC, and then toggle the toggle next to the iCloud Download column to turn it on. This will allow you to view the iCloud Music Library symbols.
How do I add songs to my Apple Music Library?
If the process of uploading your music library is taking a very long time – It is possible that the uploading of your music library will take a longer amount of time if the majority of your music was imported from sources other than Apple Music or if you have a huge music library.
- Establish an internet connection on either your Mac or your PC.
- Launch the Apple Music app or iTunes on your computer.
- Make sure that the Sync Library application is running on your Mac and that it is switched on. Check to see that your iCloud Music Library is active on your own computer.
- Keep the Apple Music app or iTunes running in the background until the uploading of your music library is complete.
After uploading your music library, if a song is still disabled after you import a fresh copy of the song into your music library, the song will no longer be disabled. The next step is to update the file library in the cloud by going to the menu bar of the Apple Music app or iTunes and selecting File Library Update Cloud Library.
