When switching from Spotify to Apple Music, you may still want to listen to the songs you like on Spotify using iTunes. Have you ever wanted to add Spotify music to your iTunes library? Also, if you want to listen to Spotify songs on iPod such as iPod Nano/Shuffle, you need to add Spotify songs to iTunes library first. However, Spotify Free doesn't support song downloads, and you can't even add encrypted Ogg files downloaded from Spotify Premium to your iTunes library.
Actually, regardless of Spotify Free or Spotify Premium, if you use TuneKeep Spotify Music Converter to convert Spotify music to MP3, M4A, WAV, etc., you can easily add the output files to iTunes library on Windows or macOS up to Mojave 10.14.6, or add to Music app on macOS Catalina 10.15 or later.
Spotify Songs Can't Be Added to iTunes Library Directly
It is no exaggeration to say that iTunes is a well-known software program. iPhone, iPad, Apple Music, iTunes Store, etc. are all related to iTunes. iTunes is also a software program with music and video playback, management and transfer features, as well as an online music and video store. Besides that, it has various functions such as music conversion and CD burning. It's common to use iTunes to transfer music from your computer to your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Apple's portable audio players such as iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle, and iPod Classic. Since it has many functions, it is heavy and difficult to use, so from macOS Catalina, iTunes has been divided into four apps such as Music, Apple TV, Apple Books, and Apple Podcast.
For music transfer, depending on the OS, you need to use iTunes and Music app. Before transferring, you need to add the song to your iTunes or Music app library. Music formats that can be added to the iTunes or Music app library are limited to MP3, M4A, WAV and AIFF. When switching from Spotify to Apple Music, or if you want to listen to Spotify music on your iPod Nano/Shuffle, you need to add Spotify music to your iTunes music library.
With Spotify Free, you can't even download songs, so you can't even add music to your iTunes music library. With Spotify Premium, you can download songs, but the downloaded music files are encrypted Ogg files and are hidden deeply in Spotify cache folder. The Ogg format is not compatible with iTunes and Music app. Unprotected Ogg files can be easily converted to MP3 or M4A for iTunes library by normal audio converters, however, protected Ogg files can't be added to all kinds of audio converters. That is to say, no matter which plan you are using, you can't add Spotify songs to iTunes library directly.
Fortunately, TuneKeep Spotify Music Converter can easily convert Spotify music to MP3 or M4A which can be added to iTunes library.
