How To Convert Your Amazon Music to Apple Music
Listening to music is easier than ever, thanks to the sheer number of streaming apps. Users can create unlimited playlists, download music offline, watch music videos, and read song lyrics from anywhere they are.
When switching apps, it’s relatively normal to want to transfer all your carefully curated playlists along. However, it is often not easy to figure out how. We’ll explain how to transfer music from Amazon Music to Apple Music.
Amazon Music and Apple Music Converters
Most streaming apps and services don’t allow you to switch content between them. This is mainly because the developers want to keep you supporting their service through monthly payments.
Amazon Music comes with many streaming benefits, mainly due to Amazon’s extensive plans for customization and sharing. However, it doesn’t seamlessly integrate with Apple devices, which primarily work with the native Apple Music platform.
As a result, Apple device users can end up with two platforms that have similar goals (streaming music) that don’t work with each other. If you want to have all your music on both devices, you will have to shell out for both Premium services, which can be costly.
Since both platforms also provide different access, paying less for one might give you some unwanted ads in the process.
Luckily, there are plenty of third-party platforms that work with Amazon Music and Apple Music. They can bypass the apps’ format locks and convert files so you can listen to them on any device you have.
These third-party services are typically not free (but usually include a generous trial), so you still have to spend some money for convenience. However, the price of a converter that can work with multiple apps usually outweighs the cost of adding the same playlists over again on those platforms and paying for them separately.
Below is our short list of a few ways you can convert your Amazon Music into Apple Music. These platforms can also work with other streaming apps, so they might be worth checking out in depth for more options down the line.
Soundiiz is a program that allows us to transfer music from Amazon Music to Apple Music. Best of all, it has a generous free offer that can convert tracks and playlists, albeit one at a time.
All you need is a computer and an active subscription to both Amazon and Apple Music. Here’s what you need to do:
- Open Soundiiz in your browser. You may need to download and install an app, depending on the platform.
- In the left-hand menu, select Platform to platform.
- Select Amazon Music as the source and log in with your credentials.
- Choose what files you intend to transfer.
- Click on Apple Music as the destination and log in.
- Click Begin and relax while you see the transfer process in the Batches list.
At base, Soundiiz provides very little throughput. However, its Premium offer is very cheap for a month of access. If you need a quick one-time transfer, consider spending some coffee money to get your music sorted.
MusConv (short for Music Convert) is a straightforward online service that transfers music between platforms without losing anything you saved. It comes in the form of an app that allows you to convert music from the most popular streaming services (and some that are relatively obscure).
Here’s what you need to do on a PC:
- Go to MusConv’s main page and download the appropriate installer.
- Install MusConv on your device.
- Create an account and subscribe to their services.
- Open the app.
- On the list to the left, select “Amazon Music” as the source.
- Log in with your Amazon details.
- Tick the playlists or files you want to transfer.
- Click Transfer on the bottom bar.
- Select Apple Music from the list.
- Log in with your Apple ID details.
- Let MusConv do its work.
After transferring, you can verify that your music is transferred by logging in to your Apple Music app.
Apart from converting music, MusConv will also keep your music details up to date. It allows you to sync between your Apple and Amazon Music accounts seamlessly.
MusConv has a free trial period, which should be sufficient for a one-time bulk transfer of a sizeable music library. However, you must pay for a relatively pricy Premium service to have it support Apple Music. If you’re dedicated to using both services, consider a lifetime offer that costs similar to a yearly subscription.
This app is available on computers and smartphones. One of its main benefits is that you don’t need to subscribe. It comes with a one-off purchase, giving you unlimited file transfer access between streaming services. Here’s an example for smartphones:
- Download and Install FreeYourMusic from your app store (Google Play Store or Apple App Store).
- Purchase the app or create a subscription-based account.
- Open the app and go to the Transfer section on the bottom.
- Tap on Amazon Music from the grid (you may need to scroll).
- Log in with your details. The app should start syncing with your online accounts on a smartphone.
- Hit Apple Music from the grid as the destination when prompted and log in.
- Choose all the songs, albums, or playlists to transfer.
Tune My Music
Tune My Music is a great app that allows you to convert music files from different services in a few steps. Here’s what you need to do:
- Go to Tune My Music’s Amazon to Apple Music converter and press Let’s start.
- Select the source service for your music files (Amazon Music).
- Log into your Amazon account.
- Select the files or playlists you want to transfer.
- Choose Apple Music as the destination.
- Log into your iCloud account details.
- Click on Start Transfer and let the app do its work.
Tune My Music also allows you to synchronize playlists, share your files, and back up your files online through its Premium service. You can learn more about it on its official page.
There are so many third-party options available that anyone can find their perfect fit. The few selected above are intuitive, safe, and fast, giving you a decent start.
