Whenever you consider switching to a new music streaming service over your existing one, you will likely have a hard time figuring out how to transfer your curated playlists onto the new platform. You go through the list of options from your app’s settings menu but could not find anything related to a transfer.
It might seem like your streaming device is incapable of exporting your saved playlists to another service. However, you would be surprised to know that almost all of the popular music streaming services do not have a dedicated transfer option.
Therefore, if you are planning on manually transferring your Apple Music playlists to Amazon Music, you should refrain from doing so as there is a much easier solution to this problem.
In this article, I will take you through all the necessary steps required in order to transfer your playlists from Apple Music to Amazon Music. I will also be listing down the method by which you can create your own playlist using the Amazon Music app.
Using a Third-Party Service for Playlist Transfer
To transfer your playlists from Apple Music to Amazon Music, you will need to make use of a third-party software. This is because most music streaming services do not allow the transfer of playlists from one platform to another.
Such a restriction has been imposed by the developers to maintain the exclusivity of their respective platforms, forcing users to create an entirely new playlist from scratch.
This is where the third-party applications come into play. These applications have been specifically designed to enable playlist transfer between two individual platforms.
Some of the most popular third-party applications that you can use for transferring your playlists from Apple Music to Amazon Music are FreeYourMusic, Soundiiz, and Tune My Music. All of these applications are free to use and also feature a premium version with some additional options.
How Do These Applications Work?
The aforementioned services will have a list of the most popular music streaming platforms for you to choose from. You will need to put in the source of your playlists as well as the platform on which it should be transferred.
These services will initiate the playlist transfer process by collecting the metadata from your existing platform. After that, it will try and sync up the metadata of all the songs in your playlist to soundtracks from the destination platform. Once the synchronization process is over, the application will automatically start transferring your playlists to the new platform.
Another thing that I would like to mention is the credibility of these services and whether or not you should have privacy concerns.
Well, in order to activate the transfer service for these apps, you will need to give access to both your Apple and Amazon accounts. This will include sharing Account Information, and passwords as well as your permission to acquire metadata from the saved playlists.
However, there is nothing to worry about as these services rely on specific information. On an additional note, you can always revoke all permissions from the service once the transfer process has been completed.
For the purpose of this guide, I will be showing you how to carry over your Apple Music playlists to Amazon Music using the FreeYourMusic app. Nevertheless, you will be able to use any of the services listed above based on your preferences.
