How to Transfer Your Apple Music Playlists to Spotify

Music streaming services make it a bit difficult to move your favorite songs around when you decide to switch your preferred service. If you’re switching from Apple Music to Spotify, we’ll show you how to take your playlists with you.

How to Move Playlists from Apple Music to Spotify

Although we would love to show you a native way to migrate your Apple Music playlists to Spotify, it’s just not possible. That’s why we’re going to use a third-party tool to do the job.

This tool is called “Tune My Music”, which is a simple website allowing you to move your songs from one streaming service to another. They offer paid plans, but its free tier allows you to move up to 1000 songs at a time from Apple Music to Spotify. If you have more than 1000 songs to move, you can always repeat the process to port your entire library.

To start transferring your playlists, open Tune My Music in any browser and select “Let’s Get Started” on the homepage.

Tune My Music will now ask you to select the source service. Since we are saying goodbye to Apple Music, this is the one we will select. So, go ahead and tap on “Apple Music”.

Select "Apple Music" as a source on Tune My Music, if you want to move your playlists from the service.

After selecting Apple Music as the source service, a pop-up asking you to connect your Apple Music account to Tune My Music will appear. Enter your Apple Music credentials (which are basically your Apple ID email address and password) and sign in. On the next page, Apple will ask you to confirm if you want to allow Tune My Music to access your Apple Music library. Click “Allow”.

Once Tune My Music has access to your Apple Music library, it will show you all the playlists in your account. You can scroll down to the “Playlists” section and uncheck the playlists you don’t want to transfer. If you select all and try to transfer your huge music library at one time, be aware that it takes a long time to move everything from Apple Music to Spotify.

On the Tune My Music website, you can check the playlists you want to move from Apple Music to Spotify.  If you want to avoid moving a playlist, you can also uncheck it.

When you are done selecting the playlists to transfer, click “Next: Select destination”.

On the next page, select “Spotify” from the list of music streaming services, as this is where we send our Apple Music playlists.

You will see another pop-up asking you to sign in to your Spotify account. Once you are logged in you can read what Tune My Music will be allowed to access, scroll down and click on the “Accept” button to continue.

This will take you back to Tune My Music, where you can check how many songs are moved from Apple Music to Spotify. When you’re done, click “Start moving my music”.

Now you can sit back, relax and play your favorite playlist while you wait for Tune My Music to complete the transfer. When done, your Apple Music playlists will appear on Spotify. Tune My Music will mark some missing songs in red during the transfer. It’s worth pointing out that sometimes these songs might have a slightly different name on Spotify, so you might be able to locate them after all.

Tune My Music moves your Apple Music playlists to Spotify.

As we mentioned earlier, you can repeat this process on Tune My Music multiple times, until you have brought all your music to Spotify. Discovering new music on Spotify is also easy.

If Spotify isn’t working for you, here’s how to move your playlists to Apple Music.
