"Check your Apple Music library settings" - includes instructions for iOS, Mac and PC:
I want to stop it adding iTunes Match songs but can't. Instructions don't explain that way around.
On iTunes, go to "Store" on the menu bar, and then "See account (firstname.lastname@example.org)..."
no way to turn it off... Under account "iTunes in the cloud" u can de-assosiate a computer or device to hide/prevent it from syncing, but the service is still active.
It's unclear what exactly you are trying to achieve. Are you trying to unsubscribe from Match, or are you trying to prevent Apple Music from adding songs to your cloud music library? Assuming it's the latter, you can turn off "iCloud Music Library". However, this also means you can no longer download Apple Music songs to your device for offline playback. See here for some more details:
[doublepost=1488435113][/doublepost]Figured it out, finally. Following works for iTunes 184.108.40.206, it may work for other versions.I'm interested in this as well. Let my Match subscription expire and then had an unrelated problem with my iTunes library that I thought Match might be able to solve, so I signed back up. I have found out that was sort of a stupid mistake and it didn't help my situation. So I would like to turn Match off without disabling Apple Music (I also subscript to that), so I can't just turn off iCloud library. Anyone know of a way to turn off Match only?
