Spotify, on 26 February, made a surprise entry to the Indian market, adding its music streaming service to the country. Now, if you’re like me who have been using Spotify for a long time, then you might have already joined the premium subscription.
The problem is I’ve been an Apple Music subscriber for a long time now and as expected I have thousands of songs in my library. Now, adding those to my Spotify account individually is going to be a tedious task. You might also be going through the same complication.
No worries, I’ve tested numerous tools and application to transfer the songs and playlist from one music streaming service to another.
Although it is worth noting that there is no way you literally migrate the songs. This app and tools will just add the songs to your destination library if the song matches from the source.
The best tool for migrating your curated playlist to another music streaming service has to be this one. Firstly, it’s a web application meaning there is no need to download any app or software to your device. Secondly, it’s completely free of cost. In addition, it’s a dead-simple to use service.
Then, select the source music service (Apple Music or Google Play Music or Amazon Music).
If you’ve selected Apple Music, you’ll be asked to log in with your Apple ID.
Once you do that, the site will fetch your library, and you can select songs, artists, playlists, or albums to merge.
Hit the Merge button to start the sync. The site will helpfully list songs that it couldn’t find in the destination service.
Soundiiz (Web Application) – Move one playlist at a time, $ 3 to transfer everything in one go
Soundiiz is another such web application that does the job perfectly. The catch here is that, on the free version, you can move playlist one by one at a time. To transfer all the playlist at once, you’ll have to buy the premium service which costs USD 3 per month. Just like the Tune My Music, the steps for Soundiiz is also a no brainer.
Stamp (Desktop, Android, iOS) – Transfer 10 songs at a time for free, € 8.99 for premium access
Like Soundiiz, Stamp is another amazing music migration service which falls under the freemium category. The bummer here is the fact that you can only transfer 10 songs at a time. To migrate all at once, you have shell out some money which by the way is going to set you back EUR 8.99.
Login to your source service (Google Play Music or Apple Music).
Select your destination (Spotify) and log in to the service.
Select the playlists that you want to transfer. (There’s a Library playlist for Apple music that contains all of your libraries).
Click on Begin to start the sync.
SongShift (iOS) – Transfer a single album or playlist for free, $4 for premium service
When it comes to the iOS platform, the only perfect application for transferring your playlist is SongShift. As mentioned, it’s free to use if you’re planning to migrate a single album at a time. Otherwise, you might want to pay for the premium service. Another good thing about this app is that it keeps a record of what you’ve previously transferred.
