iTunes purchased music and audio files come in M4P format and these files come with DRM protection by Apple. M4P files can be played on Apple devices, but to access and play these files on non-Apple devices like Android, Windows, and others, you need an M4P player or need to convert M4P to another common audio format. Read this article to learn how to play M4P files easily on Android or other devices smoothly.

Part 1. Why M4P files can't play on Android or other devices.

Developed by Apple, M4P is an encrypted audio file format that comes with DRM-protection. These files are downloaded from iTunes and thus also known as iTunes Music Store Audio files. Since these audio files come with protection, they can be accessed and played only through iTunes and Apple devices that are authorized to play these files. Non-Apple devices like Windows players, Android players, smartphones, and others cannot play M4P files.
