Transfer iTunes purchased song to Spotify local files


Transfer iTunes purchased song to Spotify local files


Hi, I have Spotify premium on an iPhone XS and I’m in the UK. I was wondering if there’s any way to put a song I’ve purchased on iTunes on Spotify using the local files option? I know you can put mp3 files etc into local files but what about songs that are on iTunes? It’s just because there’s a song by Florence and the machine that isn’t on Spotify but i can buy it on iTunes so I was hoping there’s a way to transfer it. Thank you

Hey there @Maddie1357,


Thank you for reaching out to us here in the Community.


Even though some other file types might work, these are the ones that the feature is designed to work with:

  • .mp3
  • .m4p (unless it contains video)
  • .mp4 (if QuickTime is installed on your computer)
  • .m4a (unless it’s an Apple lossless file; ALAC or ALE)
  • These files must exist on the device, either outside of the app or by setting them to Offline inside the app

To sync local files from one device to another, you must be actively logged in to both devices with Spotify open and on the same network.


Make sure that the file isn't DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected. Since you use iTunes, you can check for DRM protected tracks by following these steps.
