Hello, have a problem with local files. Item not showing in sidebar in Spotify. Tried turn off / turned on local files in settings, have added local directory with my mp3 music, nothing happened.

Any fix please?

 

Installed spotify via snap, then uninstalled and tried it via apt-get, same result.

Hey @Renecek 

 

There should be a tile for your Local Files in Your Library. Should be visible as a blue tile, see:

It will no longer appear in the side menu since the introduction of the app's new looks.
Hope this helps, have a nice day 🙂

Hey @Sebasty,

Didn't see it 🙂 Thank you.

 

btw spotify doesn't search tracks in local files anymore?

@Renecek- yap, local files no longer show up in search results. If you have a long list of files and need to find something quick, there is a little magnifying glass symbol in the local files, which is the "Search in playlist" feature.
