Transfer Spotify Account: Step-by-Step Guide

by Pramith

Transferring a Spotify account is mainly about playlists you have already created. To do this, however, you first need to have created a new account.

This is how to transfer a Spotify account: Option 1

If you want to transfer a Spotify account, you should first note that most methods can only be carried out with the desktop version of the app. Third-party tools are needed for the mobile version, but they are not recommended here.

  • For the manual variant, first open the desktop app.
  • First you have to make sure in the old account that the playlists are set to “public”. Otherwise the transfer will not work. This is usually written above the name of the list.
  • Next, copy the respective link of the list into a note file. This is done using the three dots next to the download arrow. You will find the link under the “Share” option.
  • In the next step, log in to the new account and paste the link into the search box. After pressing the Enter key, the playlist should now appear.
  • To copy the playlist, create a new list. In the old list, select all songs with Ctrl+A and press the right mouse button. Under “Add to Playlist” you can now connect the songs to the new list.

Spotify account search: Option 2

For the second method, you also need to make sure that all playlists are set to public. On the PC, right-click on the playlist that is visible in the bar on the left side of the app. You will now find the item “Publish” at the top of the fourth column.

  • In the search bar, enter the user name of the old account. You will find this again in the account settings.
  • In your old profile, you can also have a link created directly for the profile under the three points. It is also possible to edit the profile there.
  • Under the section “Public playlists” you will now find the lists you want to copy into the new profile.
  • The songs are now marked with Ctrl+A, just like in the first part, and added to a new playlist in the other account.
