 Hello everyone, I'm having problems trying transfer local files(.mp3 on Windows 10) to my smartphone, the files doesn't download. I use android 6.0 and when I tested on another device with android 7.1.2 gave the same problem. Please, someone can help me?Screenshot_20170615-193801[2].png"When I'm Not Around" is the local file.

It's probably just your firewall but gere's a full list of things to look at.

 

  • 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.

THANKS, it's work. I temporarily desabled the firewall and it worked again.
