Streaming platforms are now firmly embedded into our way of life, granting us access to millions of songs, albums and live performances, regardless of whether you're a die-hard Spotify fan, or recent Apple Music convert.

However, given that Spotify has been around since 2008, it's likely you've got a whole host of playlists you'd like to have access to on other platforms, like Apple Music, Deezer or Google Play.

Without painstakingly copying your lists song by song, here are some far easier ways.

Method 1: Download Stamp

Stamp is a brilliant app which copies your playlists from YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Rdio, CSV and Google Play Music to Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play Music or CSV at the press of a button. The app itself is free to download, but you'll have to pay £7.99 to transfer playlists with more than 10 tracks.

If you've come across movetoapple.com in the past, it's the same service.

  1. Download the iOS app.
  2. Open it and select the service you'd like to transfer the playlist from, and its destination.
  3. Select the playlist to port over and press Next.
  4. Either continue to use the app for free, and download just 10 new songs, or agree to pay £7.99 to unlock Stamp in full.
  5. The playlist will then appear in your destination platform.

 

Method 2: Download SongShift

SongShift similarly moves playlists from Apple Music > Spotify, Spotify > Apple Music or Deezer > Apple Music. It is free to move playlists containing under 100 tracks, and charges £3.99 to unlock the full version. You can remove adverts by paying 79p under the Extras menu, and your iOS device must be running iOS 9.3 or above.

  1. Download the iOS app.
  2. Open SongShift and select Begin New Shift.
  3. Select the service you'd like to move the playlist from, and its destination platform. SongShift currently only supports Apple Music, Spotify and Deezer.
  4. Select whether you'd prefer to add the tracks to a current playlist, or a new one entirely.
  5. Your playlists will now have moved.
