Hello. I'm new on Spotify. I have some questions.
I have always had my music on my Mac as local files and listened them on iTunes. And also I have always had an ipod to listen my music. Now I want to move to Spotify because I have a new phone that can finally run spotify.
I know I can listen to my local files on Spotify on my desktop app, I have no problem with that. My question is, can I add these songs to my Spotify playlist? I mean, is there any way that Spotify "identifies" my local files and add them to my music as songs from the spotify's servers? Because, when I see on my library "Local files", for example, I can't click on the artist name to listen to more music of this band (although I know Spotify had these bands on its catalogue). I don't know if I explained my question correctly.
Thanks a lot! I hope you can help me.

you can't. Spotify doesn't look for audio files on your mobile decive (at least not on Android), as it does on macOS. All of your iTunes songs you add to your playlists will be seen as "not available" on your other devices. However, you can still add the song from the Spotify library (if it exists).
