Open the app and use it. Nothing particular about it.
What is the concrete problem?

Answers to most questions like this are right on Apple's website:

Apple music is good, but very limited. Your choice is limited to U.S. music and you can't find too much German or Canadian one. Plus you can't download MP3s so thanks, but no thanks.

Well baby you still have to think of where to look for your music. Almost nobody will let me convert it into MP3 either. They want me to listen to it on my smartphone, but no way I carry this spade with me all the time. I want to use https://mp3juice.link for MP3 downloads and would like to ask you if you have already heard of that, darling.

So get your German and Canadian music elsewhere and add it to your music
library.

I've added my own CDs and MP3s to my Apple Music/iTunes libraries for
decades now. I don't subscribe to the Apple Music streaming service.

Its been awhile, but I've not had any problems in importing music into iTunes from
external sources...both from physical CDs as well as MP3 files. This has included
some CDs I bought in Germany & brought home.

He wants to go the other way, convert content stored on his phone to
MP3, or non-DRM M4P, files so he can listen to the music he's paid for
on other devices. The issue is that the songs on the phone have DRM.
Some non-free programs let you do the conversion.

Music streaming services where you effectively rent access to the
service's huge library of music don't typically let you download music from
the streaming service to play anywhere without DRM. If that's what he
wants, he's simply being unreasonable.

Meanwhile, there is absolutely nothing stopping anyone from adding
non-DRM songs from CDs, the iTunes Store, MP3s downloaded from the net,
and so on to their own music libraries and playing all of that music in
the Apple Music app. Works great, and no DRM is involved.

> The issue is that the songs on the phone have DRM.

Not if the songs in question came from your own music library or the
iTunes Store (rather than a music streaming service like Apple Music,
Spotify, and so on). Many of us use the Apple Music app to listen to our
music imported into our libraries from CDs, MP3s, and so on without DRM
or restrictions.

Songs from streaming services naturally have DRM and won't play if you
don't have a subscription to the streaming service. That's always been
the way it works with music streaming services. Is this news to some
folks?

It's also not at all true. "Top 100: <country>" is a selection of
playlist that cover most countries.

M4a files are better than MP3s anyway.

You continue to lie. Music you buy from Apple is NOT DRMed.

Indeed.

And if you subscribe to Apple's iTunes Match service (which makes your
entire library of non-DRM music available for on-demand streaming on all
of your devices and lets you save tons of space and hassle downloading
them to each device), as a huge bonus you get to exchange your crappy
MP3 files for high-quality non-DRM M4A files, regardless of where your
crappy MP3s came from, which is very nice! I've converted most of my
music library this way, and love the ability to listen to all of it
on-demand without having to laboriously transfer files to each device,
and without the music taking up extra space on each device. Works great,
and is well worth the $25/year subscription fee.
