I recently moved my music from Spotify to YouTube Music. I think that YouTube Premium offers more bang for the buck. You get ad-free YouTube plus every song and every remix in the world on YouTube Music for just two more dollars when compared to other streaming giants.
Trying new music streaming services is easy, transferring playlists from one to another, easier! I know what you are thinking — how did I manage to transfer all my playlists and other music preferences from Spotify to YouTube Music?
If you came here looking for a solution, I am sharing some services and apps that will let you transfer playlists from Spotify to YouTube Music within minutes.
1. Playlist Buddy App
Playlist Buddy is a free, ad-supported web service. These are no popup ads though. You will just notice banners at the time of transferring your playlist from Spotify to YouTube Music. The whole site was built to do only one thing. No other music streaming site is supported at the moment! Visit the website and sign in to your Spotify.
You will see all the playlists on the left now. Choose one or more, and sign in with your Google account into YouTube.
Once you are in, you will see a new button called Convert Playlist. Click on it.
While the process is on, you will see a couple of ads at the bottom of the screen. A way to support development of the site.
Once the process is complete, you will see your Spotify playlist on YouTube Music.
Songshift offers an iOS app but no web or Android versions. That makes it a little limited when it comes to platforms, but the app is really good. When you launch the app for the first time, you will be asked to Connect Your Music. Tap on it to sign in to Spotify.
Now, tap on the ‘+’ icon and select Setup as Source.
Select Spotify from the next screen and tap on Playlists. You will now choose the playlist that you want to transfer to YouTube Music.
On the next screen, you will choose your Destination as YouTube Music. You can either create a New Playlist or add to an Existing Playlist.
Tap on I’m Finished on the next screen to begin the playlist transfer process from Spotify to YouTube Music.
You can only add two music streaming services at the same time. You can either remove one to add another or buy the pro version for $3.99 to add unlimited.
TuneMyMusic supports many music streaming services and has a dedicated page for each combination. Well, that is a time saver. It is a web app and doesn't offer any dedicated apps for mobile platforms at the moment. Thankfully, it is completely free to use. Click on the link below to open the required selection and select Let’s Start.
Click on Spotify to log in and give necessary permissions to read and transfer playlists.
You can paste the Playlist URL or choose one manually. I prefer manually because who remembers the URLs?
You can choose one or all here, and after that, click on Next: Select Destination.
This is where you will choose YouTube as your destination.
Everything should be ready now. Review and then click on Start Moving My Music option.
Soundiiz probably supports the maximum number of music streaming services and that's why it is my favorite. Again, there are no mobile apps available. Just the web version which works well.
Click on Start now button to begin the process which you should be familiar with by now. You need to create an account or sign in using a social media profile like Google.
Choose Spotify in the left and log in to give necessary permissions.
Scroll a little, and you will find YouTube Music. Repeat the drill.
To begin transferring playlist from Spotify to YouTube Music, click on Transfer in the left-pane and select Playlist to choose a playlist.
Choose Spotify in the next window as your source.
You will see a list of all your playlist. Select one or more (premium version for more than one) here and click on Confirm and continue.
In the next screen, you can remove duplicates, enter a new title and description and set the playlist as private or public. That is unique to Soundiiz. Click on Save configuration here.
In the next screen, you can choose or remove tracks and when done, click on Confirm Tracklist.
You will now choose your destination music streaming service which is YouTube Music.
The transfer will take a few moments after which you can view and listen to it on YouTube Music. The pro version, priced at $3/month, will let you work with more than one playlists and import additional data like favorites. You can also keep playlists on different streaming apps in sync. Useful if you and your spouse use different apps but listen to the same playlist.
