Music streaming services are the go-to source for listening to music now a days. With the likes of Soundcloud, Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer dominating the market, there is no doubt that many of us wish to try different services in order to find the best one that fits our needs. But the problem being that we already have our library on an existing service, and transferring it one by one manually does not make sense.
Thankfully there are a lot of apps and dedicated third-party services that can help you with such a task. They can not only help you move your music library across different services but also help you transfer your favorite artists as well as custom playlists.
Today we will be taking a look at ‘Songshift’. Songshift is an easy to use service that allows you to transfer your music between virtually any music streaming service. For this article, we will be focusing on Apple Music and Spotify as these are the two most dominant music services in today’s market.
Let’s take a look at how you can easily transfer music from Apple Music to Spotify using Songshift.
Things you will need
- An Apple device with your Apple ID signed in
