How to Screen Record with Sound from Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, or YouTube

How do you screen record in Apple Music? Well, you can’t use the screen record feature with this service.

When you begin Screen Recording, if Apple Music is playing, then the sound will stop until you cancel the recording.

There used to be a workaround for this, but Apple has since fixed that bug. Basically, to keep a song forever, you’ll have to pay the licensing fees and buy it.

It’s worth noting that some third-party apps, such as Spotify and YouTube do not allow you to screen record in the free version, but in the premium version, you can screen record.

You can also screen record content from Amazon Prime Video. While you can technically record songs and video content this way, the legality of doing so is a bit gray.

Most likely, third-party apps will eventually build the same protections as Apple Music to prevent screen recordings of licensed content.

Even so, it’s fun to play around to see what you can record on your iPhone as long as you know that some licensed materials might push the mute button as soon as you hit record.
