How to export Spotify playlists to Apple Music

I am a big fan of Apple Music, but Spotify is also really fantastic. One of the aspects of Spotify that I do miss on Apple Music is the wealth of homemade playlists. Spotify is the defacto place for most people to share playlists because Spotify doesnโ€™t require a paid plan in order to listen to them. SongShift is a neat app that helps bridge the gap between Spotifyโ€™s playlists and Apple Music’s integrated library.

SongShift import process

Once you open the app (requires the $4.99 Pro upgrade for playlists larger than 100 songs), tap Begin New Shift. Next, select Spotify as the source (youโ€™ll be prompted to login to your Spotify account). Then, select the playlist you want to import. Choose Import Playlist, and then you will have the option of either adding it to a current playlist in Apple Music or creating a new one.

One thing I would recommend is to disable adding playlist songs to your Apple Music library. You find this option under Settings > Music. This will keep your main library free of a lot of one-song albums.
