Ultimate Guide to Move Music from Tidal to Spotify

'Q: Move playlists from Tidal to Spotify? Hi I've decided to switch over to Spotify from Tidal and I'm wondering how I can transfer my playlists. I know there are apps like Stamp or Soundiiz but they are all pay-apps, need a lot of personal information and I don't trust them. Is there any way to just have them transferred (like you can transfer Spotify playlist to Tidal)? Thank you!

Both Tidal and Spotify are popular music streaming services nowadays. Either of them can let you enjoy millions of tracks. The different between the two music services is that: Tidal is focus on Hi-Fi sound quality and musical artists, and it doesn't offer many podcasts. While Spotify provides a wide library of podcasts, and a few podcast-specific playback features such as a sleep timer and speed adjuster. Furthermore, Spotify offers an free yet ad-supported music streaming plan, which allows you to listen to its largr music catalog for free.

On February 22, 2021, Spotify announced its high-quality, lossless streaming to its service, Spotify Hi-Fi, which will be available to Premium subscribers. To strengthen the competition advantage, Spotify could price its Hi-Fi streaming tier at around $12.99 / £12.99 / AU$16 per month, compared to Tidal $19.99 / £19.99 / AU$23.99 Hi-Res streaming tiers.
