"I have downloaded some songs from Apple Music, they are protected M4P files with DRM, how can I convert them to DRM-FREE MP3 format so that I can play them on non Apple software and devices, please?"

Apple Music offers you offline listening to both songs and playlists. You can download Apple Music tracks to any of your devices. It's one of the perks of Apple Music. However any tracks or playlists you download from Apple Music subscription library will be DRM-locked.

Due to the DRM(Digital Rights Management) protection, you can't play downloaded Apple Music files on non Apple software or devices, actually you can't even put them on an iPod. When you cancel Apple Music subscription, your Apple Music songs will be unplayable or disappear. It's annoying, but makes business sense, and will help pay the artists you're listening to.
