Come on Spoitfy this is ridiculous, its been months and not even an acknowldgement of the issue. Building software is hard I get it but a little customer service in these situations would go a long way.

Alright

 

Go to Settings on spotify

 

Scroll down until you find Local Files. Activate it if its not already activated.  Make a new map on your desktop for saved .mp3/.mp4 files or whatever format you have that is supported on spotify.

 

Then above ur playlists there is a section called "Local Files" . Inside that list is all ur local files saved in that map you made for Local Files

I finally got bored of waiting for some kind of response on this issue and have reverted to an old version of Spotify as I couldn't wait any longer.

 

The steps for reverting are here http://www.reddit.com/r/spotify/wiki/1011060gc75ebdfd#wiki_reverting_to_an_older_version_.28without_....

pinkflink is correct:

 

Go to Settings on spotify

 

Scroll down until you find Local Files. Activate it if its not already activated.  Make a new map on your desktop for saved .mp3/.mp4 files or whatever format you have that is supported on spotify.

 

Then above ur playlists there is a section called "Local Files" . Inside that list is all ur local files saved in that map you made for Local Files

 

After doing this, check out "YOUR MUSIC" on the left nav bar and it should be there. It will also be searchable if you type it into the search bar.

 

Hope this helps some people...

Thanks for this workaround, but this is a big problem for artists with lots of local files, some homemade without metadata so can't be easily searched locally. Need to be able to drag and drop into playlists - ease of adding local files is a big part of why i use spotify.

Slowpokes...

 

I addressed this issue way back in March and drag-n-drop is still missing. https://community.spotify.com/t5/Help-Desktop-Linux-Windows-Web/You-can-no-longer-drag-and-drop-file...

 

On another note, it's a shame that Apple Music does not feature scrobbling yet.
