Simple Guide to Export Spotify Playlists to iTunes

How do you get a song from a Premium Spotify account into an iTunes library?

It's quite common to change from one music streaming service to the other. As more and more listeners shy away from physical recordings in favour of massive online music libraries, music streaming services keep popping up.

However, switching between the options ( such as changing from Spotify to Apple Music ) is not as easy as you expected especially once you’ve invested time and energy into building your playlist on it.

Playlists are the most valuable part of a music collection for a lot of people, and also the most difficult part of switching between services.
