[Summary]: How to get songs from Spotify to Apple Music? Here we introduce a brilliant program to help you remove DRM and convert Apple Music songs and playlists to Spotify app easily by using UkeySoft Apple Music Converter.

“I canceled my paid Apple Music subscription and tried using Spotify. But I have saved a bunch of albums for offline listening on Apple Music. Returning to Spotify from Apple Music, can I bring my new Apple Music playlists?”

Both Apple Music and Spotify are the most popular streaming services in the world, but they seem to be different. For a monthly subscription fee of $9.99, you can listen to over 500,000 songs online or download Apple Music songs, playlists, and albums for offline listening. However, you can't enjoy Apple music directly on Spotify. Why? Apple Music files are only available for playback on Mac and iOS devices. In other words, you can only listen to Apple Music on authorized devices by Apple or other devices that have Apple Music app installed. Apple Music is protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM copyrighted in M4P format. Even if you are an Apple Music subscriber, you will not be able to listen to Spotify songs downloaded offline through any media player. It's even less likely to move the playlist directly from Apple Music to Spotify.

To import Apple Music playlists to Spotify, you can convert your Apple Music to DRM-free audio format, such as MP3 which is currently the most widely used audio format. After getting the MP3 Apple Music local file, directly import the DRM-free Apple Music file into the Spotify program. Done, you can enjoy Apple Music songs & playlists on Spotify without any restrictions. You can follow the next step-by-step guide to finish the copy process.
