If you don’t upgrade to the paid version, which is $3.99, you can connect only two music streaming services. It is enough for you to move Apple Music playlist to Spotify. Let’s see how it works.

Unfortunately, it is only available on iOS providing a free and paid version. If you use an Android phone, then you can use Stamp, which also comes with a free version. Well, the free version only allows you to convert 10 songs from a playlist.
If that’s not a problem for you, you can download it free from Google Play to get started. When connecting Apple Music, it will redirect you to a web browser to authenticate. The next time when you want to transfer music from Apple Music, you have to do it all over again.
I really don’t like its experience, but that’s the only free app that I have found on Android. if you have a better solution for Android users besides Tunemymusic, the free online service, let me know in the comments.
