Spotify, playlists created with Shazam may disappear. How to save them

Spotify playlists created with Shazam may soon be deleted. However, you can save them: just export Spotify playlists and then restore them

Now that the merger has also been cleared by European antitrust, there are no longer any obstacles of any kind to Apple's marriage with Shazam. The Cupertino's house has cut a check for 3 billion dollars to complete one of its rare acquisitions and succeed, so, to grab one of the most sought-after services in music and, more generally, multimedia.

Shazam, in fact, is the main service for the recognition of songs and music tracks in general and, in Apple's plans, should give a big hand to improve the listening experience on iPhone and other devices of the bitten apple. In particular, Shazam should be integrated both within Siri, so as to improve its capabilities "in music listening", and in Apple Music, the audio streaming service of the Cupertino company. And it's no coincidence that Spotify, an alternative streaming service to Apple Music, could pay a pledge for the conclusion of the acquisition.

According to many analysts, in fact, Spotify playlists created with Shazam could soon be deleted from the music service's database. The move, of course, would serve to weaken a direct competitor in one of the most profitable sectors of the multimedia world and, at the same time, strengthen services and tools offered by Apple Music. In short, a big headache for all those users who rely on Shazam to create playlists on Spotify and who risk seeing all the lists of songs to listen to suddenly disappear.

Exporting Spotify playlists

To avoid losing Spotify playlists created with Shazam you can export them to a PC and, later, restore them within your account under another name.

The second one, on the other hand, converts the information created with Exportify into a playlist that can be played on Spotify, retrieving it from the music streaming service's database. The whole thing takes no more than a few minutes and doesn't present any particular difficulty.
