How to listen to Apple Music on multiple devices at once

Update May, 2017: Added new screenshots and text for iOS 10.

It's been almost two years since the launch of Apple Music, and not a lot has changed in regards to listening to music from the service on two devices at the same time. In order to do so, you will need a family plan, which will let you listen simultaneously on up to six devices. While that might be inconvenient, the good news is that it's pretty easy to set up.

Here's how you can play Apple Music on multiple devices at once using a family plan.
