If you want to expand your playlist outreach, having your playlists featured on more than one streaming platform is key. Whether you’re an independent artist with a band-curated playlist, label, blog or music lover you can do this. For this, you have to transfer your playlists across different platforms. One way of getting the playlists you have on Spotify to Apple Music is to manually search and add to the new playlists on Apple Music. If you don’t have anything else to do, this might work for you. Luckily there are easier ways to transfer Spotify playlists to Apple Music or vice versa. In this article, we’ll walk you through different free methods and playlist converters. Some, like Soundsgood, even have a shareable player and website widget for you to display your playlists.
We’ll discuss Soundsgood, TuneMyMusic, Stamp and Soundiiz.
After reading this article, you’ll be able to transfer playlists between all major streaming platforms and convert Spotify to Apple Music, YouTube to Spotify, Tidal to Soundcloud, Deezer to Spotify and so on.
According to Soundsgood, 30,000 playlisters use Soundsgood to convert and share playlists. The cool thing is that it comes with a shareable player, stats dashboard and website widget. The widget enables listeners to choose their platform of choice, including Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Napster, YouTube, Soundcloud and Qobuz.
Adding a playlist is very easy. You simply import a playlist you already have. If, for example, you have a playlist on Spotify and want it featured on other streaming platforms, Soundsgood is the way to go. After importing and publishing, Soundsgood syncs from your preferred platform every day so your playlist is up-to-date on all platforms. The only one not syncing automatically is Apple Music. New tracks are automatically added to the bottom of playlist and if you sync automatically, you’ll end up with a million track playlist. A word of advice: pick a day of the week on which you update your playlists on Apple Music after first having removed all tracks, click sync and you’re good to go for another week (or so).
One other cool thing about Soundsgood is its music premieres with exclusive pre-releases by 100+ record labels and artists to inspire your next playlists.

TuneMyMusic solves exactly that.

Stamp is a bit different from the first three because it’s an app. It’s available on desktop, Android and Apple. For this example, we’ve downloaded the desktop version. This one also comes with a free and premium version. For a one-time payment of 8,99 EUR, you’ll get lifetime updates and support. The disadvantage of the free version is that you can only convert one playlist and 10 songs per session. With premium both are unlimited.
