How to move playlists between music streaming services

Want to transfer our music playlists from one account to another or from one online music service to another? Let’s see how to do it

The various music streaming services available (Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music etc.) offer a trial period in which to evaluate the entire library and the sound quality, so as to finally choose the service to pay for in order to listen to streaming music. If we also create our playlists during the tests, we seriously risk losing them if we often switch from one service to another, given that there is no communication of any kind between the services.
If until now transferring music playlists between streaming services seemed impossible to you, you will have to think again: in this guide we will show you how to move playlists between music streaming services via a completely free online service. Thanks to it we can take the music to any account used, without having to repeat everything from scratch every time.

5 programs to add extra features to Spotify that can be used with a Spotify Premium account on Windows PC and Mac

The best way to listen to music on PC today is using the Spotify program which is used to listen to streaming music by searching for artists and song titles.

How to move streaming playlists

The online service that we can use to transfer playlists between various streaming services is TuneMyMusic.

The site, completely free, allows you to move libraries from one service to another, even taking the trouble to look for the same songs that we have inserted in the playlist on our own (an operation that on paper would be very difficult to do manually) .
TuneMyMusic currently supports importing and exporting from the following music streaming services (at least in Italy): Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play Music, TIDAL, KKbox, and Napster.
Its use is really simple and within everyone’s reach: we open the service site and click on the button let’s start, present in the center. A new screen will now open, where you can choose the “starting” streaming service, i.e. the one we want to abandon or from which we need to extract our already created playlists.

The last two buttons at the bottom right; Free Text and Load a file allow you to write the names of the songs in the playlists by hand and load a previous playlist file exported from other media players (for example we can load the playlist files generated with Windows Media Player or VLC). Remaining in the streaming area, we choose the service from which to start and type the access credentials to the service, which is essential to be able to recover the playlists from our account.

After entering the credentials and confirming the warning window, we will have access to all the playlists of our old account: we select the playlists we wish to import one at a time, then click on Keep on.

In some cases we can also avoid entering credentials: it will be sufficient to enter the URL link of the playlist (possibly shared as public, otherwise it will not be visible from the service).

In any case, a new window of the site will now open, in which to choose the service to which we want to move the selected playlists.

As visible from the image, we can both choose another Spotify account and choose one of the other supported services.

If we want to obtain a CSV file with the playlists (to be imported manually later), we use the button Export file; if instead we want to share the playlist on social networks or in chat, we use the button Share.

After choosing the destination service, we will be asked for the new credentials of it in order to effectively transfer all the playlists.

In the last screen that we will see appear, we will be shown a summary of the moved playlists; to start the process just click on Start moving my music.

Now let’s sit back and wait: the process can be slow, given that the service looks for the songs associated with the playlist also in the new service (and it is not certain that they are all present).

At the end of the process we will be shown how many songs have been correctly important and how many have not, so as to know in advance if there is any “missing” song.
