How to Change Apple Music Playback Speed [100% Work]

While listening to songs and podcast episodes on Apple Music, you may want to change Apple Music playback speed. However, all Apple Music subscribers cannot find the option to speed up or slow down music. So, can you change the playback speed on Apple Music? The answer is yes! Just follow us to see how to change the playback speed of Apple Music songs.

For keeping a standard streaming audio quality, the playback speed is 1× as the default in the Apple Music app. Apple Music doesn’t have a feature for users to adjust the playback of music and podcasts. Therefore, if you want to slow down or speed up songs on Apple Music, you need to make use of a speed changer. However, Apple Music songs are restricted by digital rights management, which prevents you from using Apple Music songs with any platform.

In this case, you’re supposed to download and convert Apple Music with a third-party tool, then you can change the playback speed of Apple Music by using a speed changer. Tunelf Audio Converter is a professional audio converter that can deal with a number of audio files, including Apple Music, iTunes audio, and Audible audiobooks. With this one-click solution, you can save Apple Music to some popular audio formats like MP3 without a problem.

In addition to using a speed changer, you can directly adjust the speed of Apple Music songs with Tunelf Apple Music Converter.
