How To Convert an Amazon Music Playlist to Spotify
You may have considered leaving Amazon Music behind and switching to another music provider. Shifting to Spotify is an excellent choice for many, as it provides you with best-in-class features. However, moving to another platform is not as easy as it seems.
There are a few ways you can make this move to Amazon Music though. Read on to find out how to move all your music to Spotify in a snap.
Amazon Music Playlist Converters
Many people opt for Spotify when choosing a music provider for long-term use. It is currently one of the best options on the streaming service market, considering its overall performance and the features it provides. An extensive music library and ad-free music experience are only a few perks it offers.
Spotify users swear by its playlist sharing option, as it makes the listening experience even more immersive. You may encounter a blockage when moving your carefully crafted track lists from Amazon Music to Spotify. Amazon protects all of its music, so you can’t move it straight outside the app.
Some may suggest going old-school and recording the tracks one by one, which is a process that will most likely cause you a headache. An easier and faster way is to use specially-tailored apps that help hack Amazon Music’s permissions. These platforms allow you to convert Amazon Music tracks into DRM-free formats that Spotify supports, such as MP3. Using these third-party apps will help you remove the licenses on the tracks and enjoy your music on another service without limitations.
