Follow this easy steps to transfer your Spotify playlists to Apple Music?. Whether you’re one of those subscribers seeking a new music streaming service as a result or were already considering switching, the thought of losing all of your perfectly curated playlists may put you off.

Transferring Spotify playlists to Apple Music or another service or from Apple Music to Spotify if you’re going the other way is quite simple.

Here’s how to move Spotify playlists to Apple Music or another streaming service if you’re relocating or simply want consistency across all of your music app subscriptions.

Transferring Spotify playlists to Apple Music: Before you begin,

There are a few items you’ll need before we get into the specific process of converting Spotify playlists to Apple Music. Active Spotify and Apple Music accounts are essential; both apps should also be loaded on your phone.

A third-party app is the best way to convert Spotify playlists to Apple Music. However, because there are distinct apps for each smartphone OS, we’ve divided this advice into two parts.

We’ll start with how to transfer Spotify playlists on iOS, so scroll down to learn how to transfer playlists on Android.

Remember that the techniques below will work for other providers with slight modifications, making it simple to migrate playlists from Apple Music to Tidal or Deezer to Spotify, for example.

Transferring Spotify playlists to Apple Music on iOS

Download and install SongShift from the App Store. The free version allows you to transfer one playlist at a time, whereas SongShift Pro ($4.99/£4.99 per month) allows you to move multiple playlists at once.

You’ll need to link your Apple Music and Spotify accounts in SongShift. At the top of the list, hit Apple Music, then ‘Continue,’ followed by ‘Connect.’

To allow SongShift access to your Apple Music collection, tap ‘OK.’ Tap ‘Connect’ under ‘Connect Cloud Library.’ This will open a browser window to the iTunes website.

Sign in with your Apple ID and provide any 2-Factor Authentication information you have if you have it enabled.

Select ‘Allow.’ Apple Music has now been synced, and SongShift will return you to the list of available providers.

Scroll down and tap Spotify. Enter your Spotify account information and click ‘Login.’

Read the terms and conditions before clicking ‘Agree.’

Spotify has now been synced as well, and you will be returned to the list of available apps. Tap ‘Continue’ at the top this time.

Tap ‘Get Started,’ then the ‘+’ icon in the top-right corner of the app.

If you’ve never used SongShift before, you’ll be given the option to watch a short lesson, but this isn’t required, so press ‘Dismiss.’

Tap ‘Setup Source,’ then on the Spotify symbol, and finally on ‘Continue.’ It’s worth noting that the word ‘Playlist’ will be underlined by default, but you may also use this method to transfer albums and individual songs.

Tap ‘Done’ in the top-right corner after selecting the Spotify playlist you want to transfer. If you’re using SongShift Pro, you can add numerous playlists here; the free version has that option disabled.

Apple Music should be the default destination for SongShift. Wait for the processing to finish before tapping ‘I’m Done.’

Tap on the playlist once ‘Processing’ changes to ‘Ready for Review.’ You can review any failed matches here, which are Spotify tracks that did not have an equivalent Apple Music version. You may either tap ‘Re-match’ to manually search for the music in Apple Music’s catalog or just tap ‘Ignore,’ which will remove it from the playlist.

After reviewing the matches, tap ‘Confirm Matches’ and wait for the procedure to finish. Once ‘Processed results’ is checked on the next screen, hit ‘Continue.’

While SongShift doesn’t make it explicit, that’s all there is to it – you’ve converted your Spotify playlist to Apple Music and can now locate it in the latter’s Library section.

Transfer Spotify Playlists to Apple Music on Android

From the Play Store, download and install Soundiiz. It’s free, but unlike SongShift, you’ll need to sign up for an account.

Select ‘Sign up or sign in with your Google, Facebook, Apple, or Twitter account.

Tap ‘Let’s Go,’ and a list of installed music apps will appear. Tap ‘Connect’ to begin synchronizing Spotify.

Sign in to your Spotify account and press the ‘Login’ button.

Read the terms and conditions before clicking ‘Agree.’

Now that Spotify is connected, look for Apple Music in the music app list and press ‘Connect.’

Select ‘Sign in to Apple Music. This will open the Soundiiz website in a browser rather than iTunes, but you will still need to input your Soundiiz credentials.

Select ‘Sign in to Apple Music. This will launch a new browser tab.

Enter your Apple Music login information and click ‘Allow.’

It may seem counterintuitive, but you must manually return to the Soundiiz app and hit the ‘X’ in the top-right corner. This should take you back to the apps list, with Apple Music now connected.

Tap the ‘X’ again to get a list of all your Spotify and Apple Music playlists. Tap ‘Convert’ after selecting the Spotify playlist you want to transfer.

Enter a new name and description for the playlist as it will appear on Apple Music if desired. Select ‘Save configuration.’

Go through the list of songs that will be transmitted; if you want to delete a song from the playlist before it’s transferred, tap it to uncheck it. Otherwise. Select ‘Confirm.’

Select Apple Music as a destination by tapping the Apple Music icon. Wait for the converting process to complete before selecting ‘Show.’

You’ll see the playlist you transferred, which is now available on Apple Music. Thank you for listening.
