Apple Music family plan not working


I purchased the Apple Music family share plan and shared with my family. And it works great on my wife's phone. However, when I want to invite my friend into this sharing plan, it often prompts her to get a subscription of Apple Music. I was annoying with this problem and search some solutions on Google. I had tried all possible way but failed. And a solution said I can convert the Apple Music to get the Apple Music family share working. Is it legal to do that?

Anybody experienced?

    It may require that your friend have an Apple ID (email address or I believe the email address can be obtained free of charge.

    No, that's not legal. Also it seems like you posted this to advertise this program, being your first post here, IMO.

  • Don't worry, if apple music family sharing doesn't work, you can try this instruction to convert Apple Music M4P to MP3 and share Apple Music with your friends.
  • I have an alternative way to share Apple Music with your family members.

    The first thing is to remove the Apple DRM using an Apple Music Converter and convert the music to MP3 format, after that, you will be able to share the music with your family members.
