There are so many popular and wonderful on-demand music streaming services in the market providing a wide variety of music catalogue for music lovers to enjoy a better audio entertainment. But most of these streaming music services don't provide a direct option or way to transfer playlists from one to the other.

What if you have already been a Spotify subscriber but would like to change the streaming service to Google Play Music by comparing Google Play Music vs Spotify? Will you give up the whole Spotify library and restart your music trip in Google Play Music? Not really! In this article, I will introduce the effective workaround to export Spotify playlists to Google Music to make all music collection together.

Part 1. Transfer Spotify Playlist to Google Play Music with Soundiiz

When we are planning to change one streaming music service to another, the most concerned thing is about how to move the favorite music and playlist to the other's library. Fortunately, there are a few great apps that can help users achieve this goal, such as Soundiiz, Portify and Stamp. Since we focus on transferring music from Spotify to Google Music here, we will take Soundiiz as example to show you the simple tutorial on moving your playlists and favorites from Spotify to Google Play Music.

Step 1. Open the Soundiiz Web App and login this software with your social account, like Facebook or Twitter or you can sing up a new account with your email address.

Step 2. In your library, please choose target category from Playlists, Albums, Artists and Tracks. For example, if you would like to sync Spotify playlist to Google Music, please select Playlists category.

Step 3. Touch the Spotify icon on the left panel to connect Spotify account and then you can select Spotify playlists that you'd like to move.

Step 4. Click the Convert button in the top tool bar and set Google Play Music as the destination source. And you are required to login your Google account.

Step 5. The process starts. Once finished and if tracks have been found, your playlists will be available on Google Play Music.


Soundiiz can just sync your playlist list from Spotify to Google Music and it takes a long time to search and analyze the playlist from the destination streaming source. Besides, if the audio files are not available in Google Play Music, it will not show up in the synced list. But, it can't be denied that there is a simple and free way to switch playlists from Spotify to Google Music.

Part 2. Download Spotify Files and Export Spotify to Google Music

It's well known that Google Music allows users to upload a maximum of 50,000 songs for free with Music Manager. So here, the other way is to import downloaded playlists from Spotify to Google Play Music. Maybe you will be confused that Spotify doesn't offer the option for free users to download Spotify content offline and even you are a premium user, you will be not able to transfer Spotify playlist to Google Play Music due to the DRM protection and incompatible audio format. How can you export Spotify songs to Google Music?

To solve the above limitation, you just need to get help from the third-party Spotify music downloading tools.
