If you are trying to directly add music from Spotify to movie maker, and edit a short video on your phone with something like iMovie, or import your Spotify songs to any other video apps, you will find out that it seems to be an impossible task.
Spotify is a streaming music service, offering proprietary protected songs, and not licensed for being used on any video editor. Popular editing tools like iMovie support importing songs in common formats, such as MP3, WAV, AAC, but it doesn’t support the protected music from Spotify.
In other words, you are unable to import songs from Spotify to any video editing tool unless you can get rid of the protection from Spotify. So how to get "free" Spotify songs? Please move on and you will find what you need. Besides, an easy way will be introduced to add your Spotify song to your video project to perfectly finish the whole process.
