How Plex works

I can't play my Apple Music songs via Plex Media Player, why?

Without any doubt, Plex Media Player is very powerful for transferring media files. It can recognize just about any kind of video, music, or photo format and displays all of your content in an easy-to-navigate interface. Apple Music users can’t transfer the downloaded Apple Music songs and playing them on other devices like iOS / Android, Windows / Mac computer, game console like PS4, Xbox One, or TV console, Roku, Amazon Alexa, Chromecast etc via Plex Media Player, because of DRM limitations.

This DRM limits Apple Music songs can only be played on some devices, and you need to subscribe the streaming Music service with the same Apple ID, not to say that you want to copy to other devices for playing.
