They also have exclusive albums. You can use the Rematch feature to find missed or incorrect songs.

Sometimes, the name and artist feature vary slightly. Other info may differ on different platforms. Getting the correct song might take an extra second.

How long does it take to move music from Spotify to Apple Music?

The FreeYourMusic app is continually being improved and refined. With each release, the app is updated, and speed is a huge consideration. In general, the music migration will take a few minutes.

Here are a couple of estimates:

  • Small transfers, up to 100 songs, will take a few minutes.
  • Medium transfers (a few hundred songs) can take up to 30 minutes.
  • Large transfers (thousands of songs) can take a couple of hours.

Your music migration speed will depend on your internet speed, how many transfers you do in one go, and if FreeYouMusic is experiencing high traffic.

To get the maximum migration speed, here are some tips:

  • Move music in smaller batches.
  • Make sure you have a stable internet connection.
  • Avoid server overload (during peak hours).

Can You Convert a Spotify Playlist to Apple Music Without a Subscription?

If you want to transfer a Spotify playlist to Apple Music, you must have accounts in these services. Spotify's free plan lets users create and manage playlists without a subscription. You don't need a premium plan.

However, Apple Music doesn't have a free plan, and you need a subscription to use the service. There's a free trial for those interested in subscribing to the platform.

If you currently don't have an active Apple Music subscription, you won't be able to transfer your playlists.
