How to Add Spotify Music to iMovie?


Background music for your videos plays a major role in conveying appropriate emotion, mood, and add instances of humor. Choosing the right background music to match the mood throughout the different elements of your video can make your video stand out and draw more people to engage with your content.


If you're making a video that needs a song or some sort of audio from Spotify that you would like to use as background music, it can be a bit tricky. Spotify music is a streaming service and all songs in Spotify are protected and locked in its App, which prevents you from adding any Spotify track to your iMovie project. Luckily, a Spotify music downloader can come in handy for such needs. This tutorial can help you add the perfect soundtrack from your Spotify into iMovie for your video project.
