Switching from one music provider to another has always been a hassle. It is also one of the most prominent reasons why people don’t switch their music services. Going over to a new platform while leaving your hundreds of hours of music behind is just too much to lose.

No matter how good, it would still take YT music time to understand someone’s taste in music and start suggesting something they would actually listen to. Luckily enough, we found a way to quicken the process. 

We imported existing Spotify playlist over to YT music and used it as a starting point and soon enough, YT music knew what we wanted to listen to. If you’re wondering how to do the same, here’s how.

How to import Spotify playlists to YT Music?

The process isn’t as complicated as you might think. It gets over in minutes and works surprisingly well. 

Since neither Spotify nor YT Music offers built-in features to import playlists, we’re going to use a third-party tool.

While we’ve used Playlist Buddy in the guide below, you can also try out the alternatives mentioned after the guide to get the job done. 

Step 1: Head over to PlayList Buddy Log into your Spotify account.

Step 2: After logging in, you’ll see a list of all your Spotify playlists on the left. Select the ones you want to import over to YT Music. You can even select individual songs in the playlists. 

Step 3: You’ll see a Sign In YouTube button on the top right. Click on that and login

Step 4: Just select the playlist you’d like to export, and click on the Convert Playlist button. 

Step 5: Sit back and relax. 

Please keep in mind that not all your songs might make it over to YT Music. This can be for a number of reasons. If the name of the track isn’t exactly identical, or the track isn’t present on YT Music, it won’t show up on your playlist over there.
