Hey, @lafengine -

 

Unfortunately, for the time being Spotify does not have features to turn your local files into a playlist automatically.

 

However you can add your local file sources on Spotify so you can play them on Spotify;desktop_localfiles_addsource.png

 

You'll be able to find them on Your Library > Local Files.

 

Also you can create a playlist through the following steps: 

 

  1. Click New Playlist in the menu on the left.
  2. Give your playlist a name (description and cover image optional) and click CREATE.

Thank you :)

 I'm aware of those options.

 

Too bad it's not possible. Adding local files to playlists - especially if you have many - is a pain.

 

Well, thanks anyway.

Multiselecting songs using CTRL or SHIFT key might help. You can multiselect songs and add them to your playlists at once.

Yea was aware of that, i was basically looking for something like: "Add playlist" -> "select local folder" -> bam a playlist with all the songs from a specific local folder.

 

Might be an idea to implement.

Agreed. With thousands of local songs in folders by genre it would take days to sort and add them one by one in Spotify...

 

Really tedious how little Spotify is able to interact with local files... It should be as simple as drag and drop...
