Hi all,

I have Apple Music and use iCloud Music Library. Recently (not sure how long ago) when I purchase a song via the Itunes Store app on my iPhone or iPad it doesn't get added to my music library. Nothing shows in Recently Added and the purchased song won't even play. The iTunes Store app shows it as "PURCHASED" but no way to download or play it.

The only way I can fix this is launch iTunes on my PC, download the song and then do an "update icloud music library". It's like iCloud Music Library is exclusively tied to iTunes on my PC and ignores any activity on my iPhone or iPad. Anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it?

Thank you,
