    I have few question before I actually signup for Apple music.

    First: Does Apple Music includes iTunes Match? If so, could I also access my iTunes Library on Apple Music for Android devices? Because I also have several Android devices with me and my daily driver is iPhone 6S and Huawei Nexus 6P.

    Second: Do Apple track your IP address? I wanted to take advantage for the 3 month trail period. I have more than 3 Apple ID, so I can literally use Apple Music for 9 month for free. Then I will sign up for other Apple ID to get other 3 month free. One year free Apple Music isn't so bad. If Apple track your IP, then use different Apple ID would not work.

    Third: is there any devices limit for Apple Music? I have iPhone 6S, 2 iPads and 2 iPod Touch 6g and several Android devices. I would like use Apple Music on all these devices.

    Thanks in advance.

    No. Apple Music does, however, include iCloud Music Library which is essentially the same thing, except all downloaded music from iCloud has DRM and requires an active subscription (whereas iTunes Match has no DRM). You can access the Apple Music version of the iCloud Music Library from the Apple Music app for Android.

    This I don't know the answer to.

    Yes. 10 devices per person and only one device can stream music at a time (music made offline doesn't count).

    You need a valid credit card to sign up and get your 3 months free. So unless you have multiple credit card as well, it wont work.

    I think iTunes gift card will work...if not, i will just buy cheap prepaid mastercard... Then cancel the subscription before trail period end
