Importing iTunes playlists?

I use iTunes to manage my music library, but I import my playlists into Spotify to listen from there. I've been doing this fine for quite a while. This week however, when I added new music to iTunes and tried to import the new playlists, the option was gone. It's not that I can't select it, it just doesn't exist anymore. I've tried reinstalling Spotify, relocating where the iTunes library is - everything I can think of. I've seen other people post about this issue as well, but no one has answered. Does anyone have any ideas about what might have suddenly changed?

Welp, nevermind! They took it out. That really sucks, guess I'll have to stick to iTunes.

Ok Spotify, that's the 2nd feature I use that you've take away.  I've been back and forth between staying with Spotify or going to Apple Music.  You are making my decision easier.

Wow. Well that is a deal breaker.  This is part of the reason I upgraded to Premium so I will no longer pay for Premium since they took away a necessary function for me.  If Spotify had an easy way to import music, then maybe....but it is clunky at best, and now I see absolutely no way to import local files.  Sorry, some stuff still needs to be imported in order for any platform to manage all my music.  Goodbye Spotify. Google Music here I come.

I'm really thinking of going back to Apple Music. Too many songs not available on Spotify or greyed out, now I can't import from Itunes!? What advantage is there for me to stay with Spotify? None.

Using external tools like Soundiiz, Spotlistr (Textbox), Playlist Converter (Text or M3U) etc. should still work.

hi, i have the same issues as mentioned above and came across your post. but how exactly do you mean external converters might still work, if there's no 'import' option any more whatsoever? or am i overlooking something?

External playlist converter tools use the Spotify API to automatically create a new playlist e.g. in the desktop app with the found tracks in the Spotify catalogue. So if you upload e.g. an M3U playlist or copy & paste a text version of an iTunes playlist into their textbox, they will add the new playlist automatically.
