I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

 

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running? I'd appreciate any screenshots of how your app responds to your commands to play your local files as well.

 

I'll see what I can suggest next!

Hey @Maciej1409 ,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

Please make sure you have both the PC and phone on the same wi-fi, and have both open. Then disable the firewall on the PC. Once you do that, it should automatically sync your local files from the PC to your phone. 

 

Also, I'd suggest adding the song to your playlist on Spotify and then download the playlist to your phone on the Android App.

 

You can find more information about local files here: https://support.spotify.com/article/listen-to-local-files/

 

If the steps above don't do the trick, let me know!

Still not working. The songs are already downloaded on my phone but every time when I want to play these songs  nothing happens. Any other ideas?
