Iphone (and android phone) not showing up in devices/ Unable to sync local files

I connected my mac and my iphone to the same wifi and still not gettiing my iphone to show in the "devices" in spotify app. I even tried to connect it through the USB cable and still the same problem. Also, my iphone was turned on all the time on the spotify app.

 

My Mac and iOS client is up to date.

 

I did a lot of research, but among the solutions were removing the firewall which is a windows solutuion where I am using mac, or open as admin which is a windows solution as well...

 

I would really really appreciate it if anyone has any solution other than the ones that have been posted.

The devices section will be coming back in a future update.

 

In the meantime:

You won't be able to see an indication in the desktop client that the device is paired with the desktop client. But as long as they both are on the same WiFi network you should be able to trigger the local files sync by toggling the offline toggle on the playlist on your phone. Just make sure all your local files are in the playlist you switch to offline in the desktop app.
