Synchronize YouTube Music with Spotify Playlists

First, you have to get the IFTTT app. Depending upon whether you use an Android phone or iphone/iPad, you can grab the app from the Play Store or the Apple App Store. Do not download the APK from other untrusted websites or through suspicious links. Only stick to the official platforms.

  • Once you download/install the IFTTT app, you have to make an account on that app
  • Tap on Explore
  • Then select YouTube from the shown apps
  • Next, there will be a list of actions that you can choose from
  • Select Add songs from videos you like to Spotify Playlist
  • Tap on Connect
  • You have to provide authorization to IFTTT to access your Google account profile connected with YouTube. This is required to manage the YouTube Music playlists and sync it automatically to the Spotify Playlists
  • Put up the credentials
  • tap on Allow
  • Next, you have to provide authorization to access your Spotify account for managing the playlists.

That’s it. As I mentioned at the start, when you like a song on YouTube/YouTube Music, the same song will be synced to Spotify under a playlist. All songs that you like on YouTube Music will sync automatically via IFTTT.

Keep in mind that syncing the song from YouTube with Spotify playlists will take some time. It cannot be done instantaneously if you wish IFTTT to do it. Otherwise, to sync immediately you have to manually sync it.

Keeping the Sync Process Constant

You have to tweak a simple setting to make sure the sync between the YouTube songs and Spotify playlists is maintained.

  • Launch the IFTTT
  • Tap on the Settings marked by the cogwheel icon
  • Then tap on Check Now to perform sync immediately

So, that’s how you can sync the songs from the YouTube music app with Spotify playlists. Instead of searching and saving songs over multiple apps, you can have favorite tracks in one place. I hope this simple guide was helpful to you.
