Changing streaming services can be a big task for many of us (i.e. moving from Spotify to Apple Music) and there has always been one issue that stands out: the playlists you’ve enjoyed creating and listening to on Spotify, are now pointless. This can now be a thing of the past, with a new way of transferring your playlists between services.
For the first time on iOS, SongShift allows you to import your already created Spotify Playlists into Apple Music playlists.
It’s all possible with a new app I’ve recently come across called SongShift, and it sorts out this entire process for you, very simply – all you need to do is download the app, log into your Spotify account, select a playlist, and it will then transfer your selected playlist over to your Apple Music account, complete with all songs.
There are some things you should know before you begin. First you’ll need iOS 9.3 installed, because the app uses features which are only in this version of iOS, and of course you’ll need an active Apple Music membership. Also I would suggest going into settings on your device > Music and turn off ‘Add Playlist Songs to My Music‘, as this will mean all the songs you add to your playlists will not show up in My Music.
The developers have already revealed a number of upcoming features including the ability to import your Apple Music playlists to Spotify. They will soon also remove the need to first create a blank playlist on your Apple Music before you begin importing, making it even easier.
SongShift is available on iPhone and iPad for free, with an in-app purchase .
