Shazam lets you discover new songs and allows you to listen to them later by creating a playlist in its Library. However, you can not listen to these songs in the app for more than 30 seconds. For that, you will have to export the Shazam playlist to other music streaming apps. Shazam supports two such streaming platforms, Apple Music and Spotify respectively.
Apart from that, you can also export the Shazam tags to the YouTube playlist in order to watch the video songs. Since Shazam does not support export to YouTube, we will have to use a third-party website to get the job done. Here in this article, we share the tutorial to export the Shazam playlist to Spotify and YouTube.
