I've subscribed to Premium and really want to export all my Spotify songs into iTunes. Can I transfer Spotify music to iTunes library on my laptop? This guide will tell how to add Spotify songs to iTunes library step by step. Keep reading.

Spotify's music streaming service provides you with over 35 million songs for online streaming. You are able to listen to music for free with ads or are also given the option to get Spotify Premium with $9.99/month for enjoying unlimited ad-free music streaming and offline listening. However, neither free or paying subscriber is allowed to transfer Spotify songs to iTunes library due to Spotify's DRM protection.

Honestly speaking, all downloaded Spotify songs are DRM-protected so you cannot transfer Spotify downloads to iTunes, laptop, or MP3 player directly. It's not possible for you to burn Spotify music to CD, either. If you want to transfer music from Spotify to iTunes library, the first step is to remove the DRM protection for good. This guide will show you how to unlock DRM and add Spotify track, playlist and album to iTunes.
