I was wanting to hear I Need You To Love Me by BarlowGirl (the real version, not the acoustic version Spotify has), and I started a new playlist to add a bunch of songs I have on my computer including that one. There were 20 songs I was trying to move into the playlist, and only two songs (Lost In Love by Air Supply and Love Me Tomorrow by Chicago) transferred. No matter what I do, it won't let me put those other 18 songs into the Spotify playlist. Also, I can't find most of my own music in the "Local Files" tab. I understand that not all the music in the world will be on Spotify, and I understand why The Beatles and others aren't on there, but why can't I make a Beatles "LOVE" playlist by dragging the album into Spotify? I am a Premium user, so I don't understand why I can't add whatever song I want to my own playlists.
Seriously Spotify team, PLEASE get on this issue! It's been like this for a majority of 2015 so far and no changes. I have to downgrade to an earlier version of Spotify to be able to create new playlists of local files that I've bought offline that Spotify doesn't have. I think Spotify has been upgraded numerous times since this issue came to light and it STILL hasn't been fixed; every time there's an upgrade, instead of enjoying new features I have to curse and swear under my breath as I re-downgrade my spotify to be able to do this one very important thing (create local file playlists.)
This is a huge problem and should have been addressed immediately instead of just ignored for so long. PLEASE lets fix this issue so your users can actually USE your latest software!
I have a handful of songs in a folder on my desktop which have been created in Logic X DAW. Local files in Spotify on my device however is telling me to install Spotify on my computer and telling me to add songs to local file there. Which of course, I have. I've also checked that the folder destination is correct in preferences.
