Okay first of all have your Spotify Desktop App open, >> now drag the files from your computer to the App and put them on 'Local Files' left bar of the app. >> After you've transfered everything there create a new Playlist name it. >> Get all the tracks you want to be on your iPhone from Local Files (select multiple by holding Ctrl on keyboard while clicking tracks) >> Be sure your phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your computer and now open Spotify on your iPhone >> In playlists search for the new one you've created, you should see the tracks in gray, now click "Make Available Offline" on your phone (the desktop Spotify App must be open too) >> You should see your playlist will start downloading. (Do not lock your phone or exit the app as it may interrupt the download.) You are set!
Hey there folks,
Thank you for your posts here in the Community.
We suggest that you follow these steps to be add local files to your iPhone:
2. Add the files to a new playlist.
3. Log in on your mobile or tablet using the same Wi-Fi as your desktop.
4. Go to Settings > Local Files and switch on Local audio files.
Note: You need to allow Spotify to find devices in the prompt that shows.
5. Download the playlist with your local files.
If that doesn't work, make sure:
Note: Some of your files may be protected in restricted formats. Install QuickTime on your computer to allow most of these tracks to be played on Spotify.
The iTunes lossless format (M4A) isn't supported.
If your file isn’t supported, we do our best to match it with songs from the Spotify catalog. The version we match with might differ from the original.
If you still experience issues after following the steps above we suggest that you create a new topic on the help board so that we can continue to assist you.
