Recently there has been a big shift in music listening from buying and storing music on your device to streaming it with one of the many music streaming services available. Granted, the streaming services do come with a monthly price tag, but we’ve found that the services offer a great ability to discover new music which is worth the cost. Spotify is our favorite streaming service for listening to music on your iPhone and iPad. However, we have been using iTunes for years and have built up a number of playlists based on our music tastes. So the question is, how do we transfer all those playlists into Spotify? Well, it’s easy to do with a cool app called M2S for Spotify.
The above video will show you how to create a new playlist in Spotify and then transfer your iTunes music into that playlist using the M2S for Spotify app. You first need to have those iTunes playlists synced to your iPhone or your iPad, which you probably already do. Then you can open the M2S for Spotify app and it’ll show you your playlists. Select the playlist you’d like to transfer, and then select the songs within that playlist that you want to send to Spotify. Next, select a playlist that you’ve already created in Spotify that you’d like to populate with these songs. The M2S for Spotify app will transfer all of those songs while matching them to songs that Spotify offers within its music catalog. If the song does not exist in Spotify’s catalog, it simply will not be transferred. But we found some pretty good success in matching most of the songs in our iTunes playlists.
With the M2S for Spotify app you’ll be able to use Spotify to listen to your history of iTunes music that you’ve collected throughout the years. You’ll also now I’ll be able to discover new music based on those playlists. Or you can create radio stations based on your playlists. Streaming music services have certainly opened up the world of music discovery on our iPhones and iPads. We think you’ll love using Spotify as we found it to be a great way to jam out to some sweet tunes from our mobile devices.
