Hello, I tried to add MP3 files inside Spotify, but only other formats work. I tried installing QuickTime, K-Lite Codecs, removing ID3 tags, but nothing works.

Hey @Scienziatogm! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^

 

That's odd.

Have you tried the following steps?

  1. Import your local files to Spotify using the desktop app (see "Desktop" instructions above).
  2. Add the files to a playlist.
  3. Log in on your mobile or tablet using the same WiFi network as your desktop app.
  4. Select the playlist containing the local files.
  5. Switch on Download.

Let me know how it goes! ^^

Peace

I tried with this steps, and on my Android phone it works, I can play the audio file, but on my Desktop it still doesn't work. I'm getting this error message: "Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it."

Do you want to play your phone's local files on your computer?
