It's common to change from one music streaming service to the other regularly due to different entertainment request in different periods. For example, if you browse the Spotify community, you'll find some Spotify subscribers are looking to switch Spotify music to Google Play or other music services. But the problem is, they don't want to lose all the Spotify playlists they have collected. In other words, they'll need to export those old playlists from Spotify to Google Play Music. However, currently there's no direct way to import Spotify playlists to Google Music unless you use some third-party applications such as STAMP, Portify, etc. What's worse, those tools won't 100% work for every one. But don't worry. If you are facing with such a problem in transferring Spotify playlists to Google Music, you can just read on to find out an easier solution that works in any case.

What Tools You'll Need to Import Spotify to Google Play

With this method, you'll still be required to install a third party software. But unlike the other syncing app, this program is mainly used for removing DRM protection from the Spotify songs you've downloaded. As you should know, all Spotify songs and playlists are protected by DRM. In result, you can't freely transfer them to any MP3 player for playback. To free plan subscribers, they can't even download any Spotify song for offline listening. Now with this smart Spotify converter, no matter you are free or premium users, you can easily remove DRM from the Spotify tracks and playlists by downloading and converting the songs to common formats, including MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC, etc. Once the DRM protection is stripped out, you can transfer the Spotify playlist to Google Play Music as you do with other common audios.

This mighty Spotify DRM removal tool we are recommending here is TunesKit Music Converter for Spotify. It's available for both Mac and Windows platforms. Now go ahead to download the free trial version and follow the steps below to test how it actually works in removing DRM.
