    Is there a way to share a certain song from iTunes without having to manually sync it to a playlist for another family member?

    Doesn’t Home Sharing allows for that?

    I just didn’t know if that applied for Apple Music subscribers or if you could do it just on regular iTunes songs

    I understand, and I wasn’t trying to be a jerk or anything with my reply above. It was more like me asking myself the question....

    Go to settings > iTunes & App Store & turn on automatic sharing for music.

    Unfortunately, it’s all or they’ll have to download it manually.

    Not sure exactly what you're trying to do. If the other person has Music, you can send certain songs to them in iMessage. Then they can tap on it and add it to a playlist or whatever.

    Do you mean purchased songs? If so, I think you can share those in iMessage if they're downloaded songs. But the recipient still has to have Music to play them. You can't give music away you pay for. Who are you wanting to share with? A relative? It would help to know more about your situation.

    If you're talking about a close family member, then Family Sharing is your best option. But note that a member can make purchases on your account. So you would need to set it up so they can't. I don't have Family Sharing, so maybe someone else can advise better on that.

    she is. Do you re-download the music like you normally do on the other person’s iPhone in the iTunes app? And does it automatically go into the Music app

    I have no idea how it works. I've never used Family Sharing. Someone else will have to answer your specifics.

    Unless it's changed, as organizer, you are responsible for purchases made by an adult member. The purchase will go on your card. Thought I'd mention that in case you weren't aware of it.
