Hi carynzcush,

It looks like you want to know if you can share Apple Music playlists with non-subscribers. I'm happy to provide some help for this.

The following article explains how to share playlists, showing that you can share them in many different ways:

Create and share playlists - Apple Support

Share a playlist

You can make your playlists public and send them to friends.

Make a playlist public

When you create a playlist, make sure to turn on "Show on My Profile and in Search" to make your playlist public. When you make a playlist public, people can find it using Search.

Send a playlist to a friend

You can send your playlists to friends through Messages, Mail, Twitter, Facebook, using AirDrop, and more. To share a playlist, find the playlist that you want to share, then follow these steps:

  • On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch: Tap User uploaded file, then Share Playlist User uploaded file.
  • On your Mac or PC: Click User uploaded file, then Share Playlist.
  • On your Android phone, tap the Share icon User uploaded file to see your sharing options.

When you choose how you want to share your playlist, a new window opens in the app that you chose and a link to your playlist appears. In some apps, you can add a message before sending your playlist.

While you can share the playlists with non-subscribers, they will only be able to play songs from that playlist that they own.

I hope this answers your question! Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Cheers!
