It's been a while since I've been on these forums. The last time I was on here, everyone was talking about how the library feature disappeared. I wound up sticking with the previous version of Spotify because the new version was too much of a hassle. This was back in April, nearly 8 months ago. It still seems there is no way to keep both of them together. This is a huge disadvantage for someone like me as I typically listen on shuffle mode because I have way too much music to sift through. It's easier to do it this way. But without the library feature, or a similar feature, Spotify almost seems useless to me.
I would continue to use the older version, but I just updated to OS X 10.10, and I can't get it to work.
Is there any hack or any 3rd party program I can use for this? It was a pretty stupid move on Spotify's part to remove such a useful feature.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey, a bit late, but I found that you can actually add local files to your "songs" playlist through your phone or device, I accidentally found this out.
1. While listening to the song on your computer, open spotify on your phone. (I pressed the option to continue listening on my computer, not sure if that matters)
2. Add the song through your phone and it should appear in your "songs" playlist. I also have premium and was able to download and play it like any other song.
Side note: I don't know if they added this recently but I still can't add local files from my computer like you guys brought up
On MAC (MacBookPro, OSX) I found a way to easily move ALL your local files to a playlist without having to do it one track a time.
1 - go to Local Files
2 - click on the first track (don't play it, just click once)
3 - push Shift
4 - scroll down to the last track you want
5 - click one time (still with the Shift key pressed) on the last track
6 - always keep Shift pressed and press Ctrl key
7 - in the window that open with some options choose add to Playlist
