YouTube Music is a music streaming service. If you're a YouTube Music Premium member, you can download your favorite songs to your mobile device for offline listening. But the downloading content is only available in the YouTube Music app and stored in a protected format that only the app can read. YouTube Music doesn't allow you to download music onto MP3 players. And many common MP3 players can't recognize YouTube Music, either. Thus, you can't transfer YouTube Music to an MP3 player directly.

But don't worry. In this article, we will provide a viable alternative solution to help you download music from YouTube to MP3 players for offline playback. Please check the detailed guide below.
