Spotify is a cool subscription-based music streaming service, but it is not the only one. Where Spotify has an extensive collection of songs and a growing list of podcasts, others like Tidal are trying to differ by providing original content, music videos, and special features on music.
I signed up for a trial account and began transferring my playlists from Spotify to Tidal to test it out.
There is no need to create new playlists when you can simply transfer them around from one service to another. Let’s see how you can transfer playlists too and which are the best mobile and web apps to do it.
