How To Convert a Spotify Playlist to YouTube Music
Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming apps available, but it also has many limitations for non-Premium members. The annoying 30-second ads that pop up every 15 minutes and the fact that you can’t skip songs have made many Spotify users look for alternatives.
Fortunately, there is a simple solution for those who don’t want to recreate all their Spotify playlists but want to use another music streaming app. In this article, we’ll show you how to convert Spotify playlists to YouTube Music using various third-party apps.
Here are some of the third-party apps you can use to convert your Spotify playlists to YouTube Music:
One of the best third-party apps you can use to convert Spotify playlists to YouTube Music is Soundiiz. It allows you to transfer your music data from one platform to another in a matter of minutes. What’s more, it’s compatible with almost all music streaming services. Remember that Soundiiz is a web app, though, so you’ll have to convert your music data from your laptop or computer.
To convert your Spotify playlists to YouTube Music with Soundiiz, this is what you need to do:
- Visit the Soundiiz website on your laptop or computer.
- Click on the “Start now” button at the center of the screen.
- Choose “Sign in with Spotify.”
- Go to the “Agree” button to allow Soundiiz to access your Spotify account data.
- Find the “YouTube Music” icon on the left sidebar.
- Click on “Connect” and sign in to your YouTube Music account.
- Head over to the “Transfer” tab on the left sidebar.
- Select “Spotify” as your source platform.
- Go to “Playlists.”
- Select the playlist that you want to convert, and go to “Confirm and continue.”
- Configure your playlists if you want to, and click on the “Save Configuration” button.
- Click on “Confirm Tracklist.”
- Choose “YouTube Music”.
All you have to do now is wait for a couple of minutes for your Spotify playlist to be transferred to YouTube Music. Soundiiz also offers a Premium version, with which you’d be able to convert multiple Spotify playlists at once. You can also use the Premium version to transfer Spotify albums, artists, and tracks.
Apart from YouTube Music, you can transfer your Spotify playlists to Apple Music, TIDAL, Deezer, Napster, SoundCloud, Yandex Music, iHeartRadio, and many other music streaming apps.
Playlist Buddy is another free playlist conversion app that you can use to transfer your Spotify playlists. However, this web app only offers playlist conversions between Spotify and YouTube Music. In other words, you can’t use it with other music streaming services.
To convert your Spotify playlists to YouTube Music, follow the steps below:
- Go to the Playlist Buddy website on your browser.
- Click on the “Login to Spotify” button.
- Select “Agree” to allow Playlist Buddy to access your Spotify account data.

- Choose the Spotify playlist that you want to transfer on the left sidebar.
- Navigate to the “Convert Playlist” button on the right side.
That’s all there is to it. Depending on how many songs it contains, it will take Playlist Buddy a couple of minutes to transfer your playlist. Keep in mind that this third-party app only allows you to transfer playlists with up to 250 songs.
