Part 2. How to Transfer Music from Spotify to iPod via Spotify App (iPod Data Will be Erased)

This Spotify client will detect your iPod under the devices tab and you can select which music you want to transfer to these devices. This option is only available for the paid members of Spotify who have already downloaded the music content to listen them offline on their devices. If you are not a paid member, Spotify will not let you save the audio tracks and there is no option by which you can listen them on different devices. Here’s how you can sync the Spotify music to iPod via Spotify client on your computer.

Step by Step guide to sync Spotify music to iPod via Spotify Client:

Step 1. First of all, download the Spotify client on your computer and install it either on Windows computer or Mac OS X (download Windows version and download Mac version). You can download it from the links given below and can follow the on screen instructions to install it on your computer. Spotify is a standalone software to transfer the music from your computer to your iPod, so, you will have to quit the other sync software such as iTunes to proceed.

Step 2. Now, connect your iPod with the computer and launch the recently installed Spotify on your computer. It will detect your iPod and the iPod will be shown under the devices tab in Spotify. If you have never sync your iPod with Spotify before, it will ask you to erase all data present on your iPod and sync from the start. After removing all contents from your iPod, you can either select an option to transfer all music from Spotify to the iPod or can manually select the songs to transfer to your iPod. Select the appropriate option and the process of sync will be automatically started which may take some time depending upon the size of the data that you selected. Once the process of sync is finished, safely removed your iPod to finish the sync process.

* Advantages of using Spotify:

If you are a paid member and do not want to spend extra money to purchase individual song from the iTunes store, this is the best option that you can use to transfer all music. Moreover, it also provides a great option to listen all the music without deleting it from your computer.

* Disadvantages of using Spotify Client:

Spotify Client has more disadvantages as compared to the pros of the software. One of the biggest fault in using the software is that it will remove all the music content from your iPod. So, you can only sync either the music from iTunes or Spotify. Alternatively, all those users who have purchased content from iTunes and Spotify, will not be able to sync them both at the same time.
