How to Transfer Tidal Music to Spotify

How can I move my playlist from Tidal to Spotify?

Although there are some new music services entering the market every year or so, Spotify is always the front-runner in the category. It holds a huge library with over 70 million songs and offers a free ad-supported music streaming plan, allowing you to access unlimited songs without paying a penny. So if anyone wants to change service, Spotify is with no doubt a great choice.

Note, however, that almost all music streaming services encode their media content with exclusive formats, Tidal is no exception.

Is there really no way to transfer Tidal playlists to Spotify?
