Add New Songs from iCloud Music Library to an iOS Device and Make Them Available Offline

If you enabled iCloud Music Library on your iOS device, for example iPhone, all of the songs you have added to your music library from Apple Music and downloaded for offline listening are accessible to your other iOS devices if you are using the same Apple ID and iCloud Music Library is activated.

If the device you wish to update the music library is connected to the internet, Music app will automatically detect and add the new songs you downloaded previously on your other gadget. Take note, it will only add the new songs from your iCloud Music Library to the list. If you want to make them available offline, what you need to do is go to the Playlist tab and find "Recently Added" in the list.

Now, tap on the three-dot icon [More] on its right and select "Make Available Offline".

The Music app will download the non-offline songs on your Music Library simultaneously. It might take a few minutes depending on the internet speed and the total number of songs to download.

If a song is not available offline, it will be grayed out once your device is disconnected to the internet and will only play if re-connected again to a network, for example WiFi.

Once downloaded, you may now play your songs anytime and internet connection will not be a requirement.

Go to this page if you want to add new songs from your iCloud Music Library to iTunes on a PC and download them all at once instead of one-by-one.
