You have to upgrade to the latest version of iTunes or the iOS operating system on your phone or tablet to see it. The songs or albums can stream to your computer, iPhone, or iPad over an Internet connection, or you can download them to play directly from your device. Music you bought on iTunes is still yours, though. If you start streaming music and listen a lot in your car, or while running or walking or otherwise out of wi-fi range, you are going to start eating up a lot of your wireless data plan.
