We told you why we love iTunes Match, and now we’re going to show you how to put the service into use.Keep reading for instructions on how to set up the service and start streaming your music from the cloud.

Open iTunes and select 'iTunes Match' in the side bar.

Select 'Add This Computer'

Next, sign in with your apple-id and password.

As iTunes Match works you can still listen to music and do all the other things you use iTunes for.

After iTunes is finished looking through your library you will see these cloud icons next to your songs.

Here is a handy chart to show you what the different 'cloud' icons mean.

On your iOS device navigate to settings...

Scroll down to 'Music' and tap.

Turn iTunes Match on. Now you can access your music from the cloud.

After that, head to your Music app.

These cloud icons mean that the song is available in iCloud but not downloaded to your device.

Select a song and tap the cloud icon. This will download the track directly to your device.

You know it is working when you see a progress bar around the rim of the button.

Enjoy music from the cloud, now directly on your device.
