Part 1. Something about Google Drive Supported File Types
Most file types can be stored in Google Drive, while not all audio files are supported for syncing and backing up to Drive, like Apple Music and iTunes audios. All songs from Apple Music are encrypted in AAC, while all music and audiobooks from iTunes are encoded in M4P, known as DRM protection. This encryption helps minimize what you can do with its streaming music services for other uses.
To move music from Apple Music and iTunes, you have to remove DRM protection first, then convert Apple Music or iTunes music to an audio format file compatible with Google Drive. Currently, Google Drive only supports audio formats, such as MP3, MPEG, WAV, OPUS, and OGG. Converting Apple Music or iTunes music to those audio formats is a relatively straightforward process if you have an audio converter like Tunelf Audio Converter.
