There may come a time when you want to leave Spotify behind for Apple Music, whether out of personal preference or for Joe Rogan-related reasons. Maybe you’ve decided that time is now, but you have some reservations. For example...
If you’re using iOS (we’ll touch on Android later) SongShift, a freemium app, also comes with lots of positive reviews in the App Store. There are other services like Soundiiz and TuneYourMusic (both web apps), but for the purposes of this guide, we’re going to focus on SoundShift and for Android, FreeYourMusic, since they’re the most well-reviewed and popular options.
Once you’re logged in and you’ve agreed to let the app access your Spotify library you can start transferring by tapping the “+” at the top right of the “My Shifts” tab. Tap setup source, select Spotify, and tap continue. Now you can select all the playlists you’d like to transfer and tap done when you’re ready.
If you’re using an Android device, there are alternate apps that accomplish the same thing. FreeYourMusic, for example, allows you to transfer up to 100 songs and one playlist for free, but will ultimately cost $10 if you want to go over that limit.
If that’s a price you’re willing to pay, you can download FreeYourMusic on the Google Play store and follow the steps to similarly give the app access to Spotify. When you’re prompted for a destination for your transfer, enter your Apple Music information.
Welcome to your new Apple Music life. If you change your mind and decide to go back to Spotify, this process does work in reverse, but as fun as transferring all of your playlists can be, we sincerely hope this is the last time you’ll need this guide.
