I am having the same issue. Songs I have local on my PC play fine. When I try to play them on my Android I receive "The track is not available". I have a premium account, I am not a member on Facebook. At one point this worked, seemed to change recently. Possible fixes?
Any news on this? I'm new to Spotify, but just cancelled my premium service. It is a deal breaker if I can't play "MY OWN" music. They show up in the mobile app, but are greyed out in my Sonos app they don't even show up, yet I own the songs and they are on my PC (and play fine there).
Re: Can play songs on my computer but not the phone!
If you have local files you want to sync to your device, then you need to connect your device and your computer to the same WiFi network and log into the Spotify applications using the same details on both. Full instructions on how to do this are located on this help page.
I'm having the same problem, I can play local files through Spotify on my computer, but not through my android, and I have a premium membership.
I'm an amateur songwriter, and I like how Spotify automatically takes any songs I've written on my computer and makes them available on my phone... or at least it did until about a month ago. Other local tracks I have I can still download on my phone, just like anything else I get off Spotify's database (but I can still play those tracks that are unavailable on my phone on my computer).
I'm thinking there might be some licensing issue? Any feedback from someone who knows more on this would be great, thanks.
I have been doing a bunch of reading and investigating, and just found a snippit about turning off your firewall.
Temporarily paused my ESET security firewall and BOOM! WORKING!!!
See if that is affecting your downloading ability on your wifi at home. (I can't even think of downloading at work because of the firewalls), but duh.... i nearly did a *face palm* when I saw that post!
