Those who have listened to Joe Rogan’s podcast just once would agree with claims that Spotify ignores any rules about how information should be generated and transferred. When the COVID-19 pandemic forced people to stay home, services like Spotify were gaining momentum. But it also led to unethical podcasts and what Joe Rogan did can be called problematic. What’s more annoying, Spotify has never apologized for lack of privacy features, unfair compensation structures, COVID misinformation, racism, etc. All this has caused many people to cancel their subscriptions.

Well, it’s a piece of cake to cancel a Spotify Premium subscription and stop paying for this service. But if you are leaving Spotify forever, we guess most of you would like to save or transfer the playlists you created before. It takes time and there is no built-in option for it. Fortunately, there are third-party services that could help you maintain your Spotify playlists.
Use third-party services to transfer your Spotify playlists
If you just want to “copy” your Spotify playlists keeping the original track sequence and pasting them into other services like Apple Music or Tidal, there are a few options. And what’s more important, the learning cost of transferring your Spotify playlists is zero – it’s all done in a few clicks. Of course, by visiting their pages, you will find detailed instructions on how the tools work. But we’re here to help you do what you need without going into the details.
Note: Regardless of the service you use, you will need your login information for each account.
This is an easy to use iOS app that will walk you through connecting and connecting your music services and creating “Shifts”. Thanks to the well-thought-out interface, you won’t encounter any difficulties when navigating between the different menu options.
Well, you just need to select a playlist source and destination. Then this iOS app will instantly collect all your songs. And what’s amazing, the app works with any number of songs and playlists so easily and smoothly because it’s just one playlist. For example, a 7 hour playlist with 120 songs took less than a minute. In all of these cases, when the app can’t find a correct match for a song, it will let you know so you can do some manual matching.
The Pro subscription costs $4.99 per month or $19.99 per year. For that, you’ll get various useful features like faster transfer times, more universal playlist sharing, and syncing playlists between services. But even if you don’t want to pay for these features, that’s understandable. However, there is a limitation that would require you to subscribe to Pro. In the free version, you can only connect two music services at a time. Again, if you just want to transfer your Spotify playlists to another, say Apple Music, the version is quite sufficient.
Contrary to the previous suggestion, Soundiiz is a web-based transfer tool. It supports up to 50 music services. Since we are dealing with a web-based tool and not an application, it makes sense that the user interface is a bit more complicated. But it’s fast and accurate.
Soundiiz will be very useful if you don’t want to download an app or if you want to transfer your Spotify playlists to lesser-known services. In fact, when you first launch it, you’ll feel like it’s an ugly version of the Spotify web player. Either way, this tool is easy to use and since it only has one main purpose (i.e. transferring your playlists from one service to another), it doesn’t is not a problem. In terms of transferring playlists, once you connect your music services, it will only take a few clicks.
There are no limits for songs or playlists – transfer as many as you want. But in the free version, you can only transfer one playlist at a time. So if there is more than one playlist, it will take longer. To speed up the process, subscribe to the $3 paid version, and it will allow you to transfer all your playlists simultaneously.
This tool can be run on most devices. Moreover, it has a super clean interface and supports 20 music services. But to take advantage of the service, you need to get a paid subscription.
FreeYourMusic is available for iOS, Android, Windows, macOS and Linux. In addition, as we said, thanks to a clear and easy to use interface, you will navigate the menus effortlessly. Like other tools, you just need to select a source platform, the playlists you want to transfer, and a destination.
The one-time payment of $14.99 will unlock unlimited transfers. However, there are also two plans. But we do not recommend you to subscribe to them because the features they offer are not worth it. As for the free plan, you can only transfer 100 songs from a single playlist.
When transferring your Spotify playlists to other services using any of these tools, you may run into issues. Say, some songs will be marked as transferred but they won’t. Overall, they do what Spotify lacks – they transfer playlists and songs.
