I switched to Spotify because it let me import my local files. With "Your Music" this has the potential to get even better.
Spotify would be amazing if it scanned your local files and added those songs, albums, and artists to the Songs, Albums, and Artists sections in My Music automatically.
Even better, my local files are not exactly local, they're stored on an external drive, and I've love to have Spotify be able to switch to a Spotify version if the local version is not available (i.e. when I'm not connected to the drive) or it's just taking a long time to load.
