My Question or Issue

Hello, I am trying to share my own recorded audio (mp3) files with some students.

I able to play my local files on my desktop.

My playlist is public.

My students can see the files in the playlist but the files won't play; it is like there is nothing behind the title - which appears greyish . What do I need to set up right for people to be able to listen to these files? Thank you for your help.

Hi there @AvecMoi,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

There's currently not possible. If you'd like to have your music on Spotify you can always upload your songs officially.

 

However, if you think your suggestion of this feature will appeal to other users you can always create an idea on the relevant idea board. We always take new ideas and feedback into consideration to improve the app. 

 

Take care 🙂

Hi there @AvecMoi,

 

Thank you for your post here in the Community. We're happy to help you with information about this.

 

This is expected behavior. Only the owner of the local files has access to them so they cannot be shared in the app with others.

 

We hope that the information above was helpful.

 

Let us know if we can help you with anything else.

 

Take care 🙂

Hello Jeremy, thank you for the reply.
I understand.
Is there another way of sharing local audio files with others via Spotify ?
Thanks and regards, Avec Moi
