Syncing Local Files

Newbie

I am having trouble with the local files. I am on the same network however, I don't have the available offline option and it only says waiting for connection. It has synced some files but not all. The other files just stay greyed out. Whats going on here?

Hi. It's more likely that it has downloaded matching songs from spotify. Here's a list of things to check if local files won't sync.

  • 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.
