For as much as I love the audio quality of Apple Music and as much as I’m digging features like , the service doesn’t do as good a job at helping me discover new music.

That’s why I can’t quit Spotify. Nothing beats it, pun intended maybe 🥁, when it comes to surface other music that I also like. (And yes, I’ve probably given every single service a try).

But I want to be able to listen to my favorite music from Spotify at the highest level of audio quality and that can be done on Apple Music.

This is where SongShift comes into play. Another pun, yes.

Using SongShift

Use SongShift to transfer music playlists across streaming platforms

Here’s the gist of how I use it:

  1. When I find music on Spotify that I like, I create a playlist.
  2. Once the playlist is created, I transfer it to Apple Music using SongShift.

There are a few additional things I do, too:

  • I’m one of those people who still loves entire albums rather than just a few tracks, so I’ll usually create an entire playlist from a single album.
  • I occasionally make playlists that are mixes of individual tracks so when I get about 30 songs, I’ll create a custom mix.
  • I keep my playlists organized by year so at the end of each year, if I haven’t already done so, I’ll sync the playlists from Spotify over to Apple Music.

This makes sure I can continue to find new music and sync it across services and get the highest quality version, if it exists in Apple’s library, for listening to it later.
