The audio streaming offer we currently have is overwhelming. As with video on demand, streaming music platforms are commonplace. There’s Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, Amazon Music… A great offer that can, however, have a downside when you switch from one to the other.
Unlike video, with music one of the options is not just listening to something right now, but creating collections of our favorite songs through lists. Lists exclusive to the platform we created it on, which means that switching from one platform to another is not something very attractive. However, in this tutorial, we are going to tell you how to export the created content.
A list on all platforms
It is not easy to switch from one music platform to another and it is not the case especially because of what it can mean to lose a music library accumulated over months or years. As we have a wide range of platforms, we may want to switch between them and take the content with us or we may simply be users of more than one platform.
This is what a service like Tunemymusic does. With a similar operation to Soundiiz, Tunemymusic is free, but with a limitation. Only lists containing a maximum of 500 songs can be exported. If we want to exceed this figure, we have to pay.
However, this number is more than enough for most users, so let’s see what the process that we have to do looks like. We can exchange music from all kinds of platforms and between all of them. Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music… In addition, the paid version allows you to synchronize lists or export to CSV or TXT files.
For the example, the first step is to go to the Tunemymusic website and select the source of the songs, albums or lists we want to export. For the occasion I use Spotify, but it can be any other platform.
Then the website will ask us to give it access to our account in order to access the content. If you don’t trust it, don’t worry. At the end of the process, you can revoke access from the streaming platform so that other applications can access it.
The web app walks us through the steps, and the next thing it does is list all the content we’ve created in the form of a playlist. Let’s select the one we want to export.
There, the process may change. On some platforms, like Spotify, we have to copy the URL of the content we want to export. In my case, I added it from the Spotify app itself using the “Load from your Spotify account” option.
Now it’s time to select the platform we want to export the content to. We can export the list to any platform we are users of. The only requirement is to restore web access in order to access the application.
Once you complete these steps, the web service initiates the export or import process. A process that will last more or less depending on the number of pieces to pass.
At the end, Tunemymusic warns that the process is finished and we can check how the list in question was exported.
At this point, it’s time to revoke the permissions we granted. At this point, the process may differ depending on the platform. In the case of Spotify we go to the account option and in the left panel we will see the “Applications” option. Inside we will see a list with all the applications that have access to it and the “Remove access” option.
If it’s YouTube or YouTube Music, we need to remove access from Google’s website where granted permissions are managed.
