We all know that Google Play Music allows you to upload up to 50,000 songs from your computer. If you are a Spotify Premium user, you may have downloaded many Ogg files from your favorite Spotify Playlist and you may want to have the same playlists on Google Play Music. Google Play Music supports Ogg format and can automatically convert Ogg to MP3 when uploading, however, Ogg files from Spotify are encrypted. Luckily, we have Spotify Music Converter, the best solution to help you transfer Spotify songs and playlists to Google Play Music.

Spotify to Google Play

Google Play Music allows you to upload MP3, M4A, Ogg, FLAC, etc. MP3 files can be uploaded directly and other formats will be converted to MP3 by Google when uploading. We know that downloaded Spotify songs are also in Ogg format, so it sounds like we can upload downloaded Spotify songs to Google Music Play. However, a fact we shouldn't neglect is that Spotify Ogg songs come with encryption and can't be handled by Google.

Under such a situation, we need to remove encryption from Spotify Ogg files and convert them to MP3 first. Luckily, this can be easily done by TuneMobie Spotify Music Converter, an easy-to-use yet professional Spotify Music downloader.
