How to Export From iTunes to Android

By Jasmine Carpenter

It's possible to export files like your music playlist on iTunes to an Android phone. First, sort the music files that you have stored on computer. You can use the features on iTunes to help you sort your music files according to their file format. Use a third-party application to convert the DRM-protected music files that you purchased from the iTunes Store to MP3 format. Then export your MP3 music files to your Android phone.

Create and Sort Your iTunes Music Playlist

Step 1

Click on the iTunes icon on your desktop to open the application. Create a playlist for all the music files that you want to export to your Android phone.

Step 2

Click on the name of a music file and right-click on your mouse button. Select "Add to Playlist" from the drop-down menu. Click the "My Playlist" button located on the left pane of the iTunes interface window.

Step 3

Click on "View" from the menu bar and select "View Options" from the drop-down menu. When the pop-up box appears on your screen, click inside the check box next to the "Kind" option. Press the "OK" button. Go to the "Kind" column on your iTunes playlist and sort the music files according to their file format. You will need to convert any DRM-protected music files to MP3 format before exporting them to your Android phone.

Step 4

Connect the USB cable from your Android phone to a USB port on your computer. Windows will recognize it as an external device and will assign a drive letter to it.

Step 5

Click on the name of a music file on your iTunes playlist. Drag and drop the music file into the "Music" folder on your Android phone. When you have finished exporting all of your music files, disconnect the cable between your Android phone and computer.
