When I try to turn on "Sync Library" in Catalina's new Music App I get this error:

This account does not have iCloud music enabled.

Apple music has not been linked to this account.

I do indeed have an iCloud subscription, so storage shouldn't be an issue.

How do I enable iClound music on my account?

  • Do you have an Apple music subscription?

  • I believe that synching your music library with iCloud is a feature of Apple Music, so you need that too.

  • Why do you believe that? Would be very nice to have a source.

It's actually more a feature of iTunes Match which is included in Apple Music but can also be purchased separately.

iTunes Match gives you access to all of your music on all of your devices, even songs that you've imported from other sources such as CDs.



It is a feature of Apple Music and you need a subscription to it to use it.
