The good thing that there are many applications to listen to music for free is that you can try them all and choose the one that best suits your tastes. Now, many people make the mistake of sticking with the first music app they download and after years of using it they realize that they prefer another one. And it’s a mistake because these apps don’t have an option to move your playlists from one service to another.

In theory, if you want to switch to a new music streaming app, you have to leave behind all your music that you had organized in the previous app or create the playlists from scratch, which could take months . But do not worry. There are third-party apps that allow you to transfer your playlists between Spotify, Apple, Amazon, YouTube or Tidal easily and without much hassle. Next, we show you how to use the best four.

How to transfer your playlists with FreeYourMusic

One of the best apps that you can use to move your playlists between Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Tidal, among others, is FreeYourMusic. This application, available for PC and mobile, is compatible with 20 different music streaming services and allows you to transfer a single playlist of up to 100 songs for free . If you want to transfer more, you will have to pay for one of their plans.

Once you download the app on your mobile, here’s how you can use it to transfer your lists:

  • Enter the FreeYourMusic app.
  • Select which app you want to transfer your music from .
  • Sign in with your selected service account.

  • Next, you will be asked to sign in to FreeYourMusic with a Google or Apple account.
