How to move playlists and data to new account?

I've fallen into that group that signed up with Facebook and cannot for the life of me remove it from the equation. It creates many issues when logging in and sharing playlists with friends.

 

A few years ago, they had options on exporting playlists and history to a new account. Is there a way to do that these days? I would like to keep my play history and spotify recommendations/playlists. I'm guessing the answer is still no.

Hey there, I would suggest:

 

Make all your playlists public and open your old profile using URL or URI in your new account and follow your playlists, then create playlist out of them from your new account. You can then delete your old account and make sure to disconnect it from facebook(here) also. In this way all your playlists would be still there.

For liked songs- you can go to Spotify desktop and select all liked songs and move(ctrl+v) or copy(ctrl+c) or just drag drop them in a playlist and you can perform same action for that as for other playlists and then again drag drop them from playlist to liked songs in Spotify Desktop.

Your recommendations would reset and you have to let Spotify learn it again in your new account, it won't take a lot of time.


If you appreciate my answer, maybe give me a Like.
Note: I'm not a Spotify employee.
