Similar problem for me, I have a playlist with 100 songs and one is not on spotify. I downloaded from youtube to mp3 and  pressed download while on the same network, the playlist has the same song count with the downloaded song, but it doesn't show up within the playlist for me to press to play on my phone. I can play on my computer but it does not show up on my iPhone. I would appreciate it if there was a way anyone could help, thank you.

Hey @jarrettlevi!

 

Which version of Spotify are you now running on your Mac & iPhone?

Also do you have any antivirus or 3rd party firewall app installed on your Mac?

No antivirus software. I'm running the most recent version of the spotify app on both my phone and macbook

Do you have the built-in firewall enabled? You can find it from Settings->Security & Privacy->Firewall.

Hi @jarrettlevi!

 

This indeed seems to be a tricky one.

For next I'd suggest booting your Macbook into Safe mode, and trying to sync while being connected to the iPhone's hotspot connection.

 

To start up in safe mode:

  1. Start or restart your Mac, then immediately press and hold the Shift key. The Apple logo appears on your display. If you don't see the Apple logo, learn what to do.
  2. Release the Shift key when you see the login window. If your startup disk is encrypted with FileVault, you might be asked to log in twice: once to unlock the startup disk, and again to log in to the Finder.

Hello @jarrettlevi!

 

Next thing to try would be to create a new test account and try to sync your files using the new Spotify account.
