Local Files on Android

Hey there, I've been looking all around and I can't find anything that works for me on it.

I'm trying to make it so I can add some of my local files on pc in my playlist and make them able to play on my phone aswel. But I'm trying everything but it just doesn't want to download it at all.

Like when I hit the "Available offline" button it should download every song in that playlist. But it doesn't work, it just doesn't dowload the songs that come from the Local Files.

 

They do show up on my phone but I can't play them at all, I can only play them on my pc.

 

Some help please? Thanks in advance!

It's probably your firewall but here's the full list.

  • Your PC and mobile must be connected to the same Network/SSID and spotify should be running on your PC.
  • In your router settings, check that UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) is enabled.
  • Make sure that Windows shows your network as private and not public.
  • Set exceptions for spotify in any firewall or internet security programme. If you are unsure how to do this, temporarily disable them.
  • Check that you haven't already hit the limit of 3,333 downloads per device or 9,999 downloads across all devices.
  • If you are using a wifi network outside of your home, there is every chance that the protocols used by spotify for downloading are blocked.

If you still can't make it work, you can create a mobile hotspot on your mobile and connect your PC to this hotspot via wifi. Syncing the local files should then work.
