Part 1. What's the Difficult Parts for Spotify Playlist to Apple Music?

Spotify: Recommendations in Playlists

For starters we have to make it clear that songs included in your Spotify playlists can be the most difficult part. Songs not just came from the search bar but also the Spotify's recommendation at the bottom of each playlist and your real listening experience.

It's even more complicate if you're in Spotify playlists that include social recommendations shown as Blend and Friends Mix, not to say those who have let their friends add songs to make collaborative playlists in Spotify. So there' must be a pain in the back to move these thousands of songs and later search for each to add in the created playlists in Apple Music.

Apple Music: Particular Version of Songs in Playlists

There are even the different versions of songs in Spotify, so there must be more difficulties when making a switch from Spotify to Apple Music. Most Spotify users prefer one particular version of song included in their Spotify playlists and want to move them to Apple Music.

In this case, even choosing to search for each title of songs won't make much sense because some are exclusives in Spotify and not supported in Apple Music. For example, the particular version of song in Spotify and the songs due to some special licensing agreements.

Part 2. What's the Possible Parts for Spotify Playlist to Apple Music?

Apple Music Playlists support

Don't despair. While Spotify tells that "You can't save (or recover) a particular version of a playlist but you can create your own playlist and add all the tracks to that", one Spotify to Apple Music playlist converter will state it's possible and even move your playlists to Apple Music without the limits above.

Spotify: Playlists Download Service

One of the most popular services that Spotify offers is the download service for Spotify Premium. One Premium account can enable users to download songs and playlists to listen offline.

However, one Spotify to Apple Music playlist converter can remove the DRM-protection thus making the Spotify playlists collection transferrable.

Apple Music: Upload Local Music Service

If for no matter how, Apple Music allows users to upload their local Spotify playlists collection to iTunes for desktop or other platforms for mobile such as Music app for iPhone.

Using iTunes, it's possible and even simple to add local Spotify playlists collection in MP3, AAC, FLAC or WAV formats converted with a Spotify to Apple Music playlist converter before to Apple Music later with some drags-and-drops.
