Local Files not working on Mac to iPhone


Local Files not working on Mac to iPhone




I have a mac computer and an iPhone 6s Plus...


I am trying to add a few bassline mixes my friends created to my spotify and I followed all the steps, it's showing on my computer, but when I go to my phone the playlist is there but the songs aren't?


1. I made them both available offline


2. I am on the same wi-fi network


3. I followed all the steps by sourcing the local files and adding them to a new playlist


4. It has worked in the past but isn't working now


Please help, it is very frustrating moving between apps all the time, almost impossible when I'm driving!

Please make sure the songs import into Spotify: 

1. Not protected by DRM

2.In supported format (https://support.spotify.com/us/using_spotify/features/listen-to-local-files/)



1.Make sure your computer and mobile devices (iPhone) in the same WiFi network.

2.Remove the playlist which you find the problem

3.Remove and re-add the "Local Sources" - Make sure all songs synced.

3.1 You may need to reopen Spotify (MAC/PC) [in case if you added too many songs] [Recommend to do]

4.Make sure all the songs which added can be played in Spotify (Mac/PC)

5.Make whole new playlists (Recommend using different name from preventing sync error)

6.On Mac/PC, check all the songs in playlist whether they can be played or not.

7.Download playlist on your devices(iPhone)


Please let me know if these work. / Mark as solved+like.
