Because it offers best beat 1 radio service, larger music library and it works better with the Mac, iOS devices. But how can I do that?" - Asked by Victoria Ramon from Reddit.
Although Apple Music doesn't have as many subscription members as Spotify, it is growing in a much faster rate. And Apple devices don't work with most thrid party audio services.

Part 1. Simple Way to Move Spotify Music to Other Streaming Service
When it comes to transfer Spotify playlist, there are a few apps such as Stamp or SongShift can help you do that easily and you just just to pay a small amount. These apps all work in a similar way. Here I take the Stamp for example to show how to export Spotify to Apple Music.
Step 1. Visit Exportify website and follow the page instruction to input your Spotify account and password to export your playlist as .CSV files.
Step 2. Download Stamp app from Stamp's official website, it supports Android/iOS mobile devices or desktop computers.
Step 3. You can open the Stamp app, then select the exported CSV playlist file and then click "Parse".
Step 4. It will start to import the Spotify playlist to iTunes/Apple Music, please don't close iTunes and wait for it to complete patiently. Note: The free version will only allow you to transfer 10 songs. If you'd like to move unlimited tracks, you can pay $9.99 to get a license for iOS/Android/Desktop or $14.99 for a bundle license.
Stamp doesn't copy the actual music files instead it only exports and imports the .CSV files. This means that it needs to search and analysis the playlists manually from the destination streaming services which takes a really long time. What's more, you can't move the songs out of the music app. Anyway, it does offer a feasible way to switch from Spotify to Apple Music, you won't lose your curated songs, playlist, albums, artists.
