Hey folks,

 

If you can't find something you're looking for on the Spotify app, then it's likely that it's not been made available in your country yet - check out this article to find out more about the reasons for this.

 

If you own music files which you would like to add to your collection on Spotify, then you can totally do this. The steps to add these files (known as local files) to Spotify are outlined in this article.

 

If you have any further questions about local files, let us know - we're here to help.

 

If, on the other hand, you are an artist who wants to make their music available on Spotify, make sure to head over here.

 

Thanks! Stay awesome :)

Dropbbox is your best friend with this.

Basically no. But you can import your local files and sync them through Spotify to mobile devices.

 

But if you use more than one computer then you'd need your local files on all of them, for that you need to manually copy them from one to the other, or use a service such as Dropbox as hpguru has suggested. Dropbox would automate the process of keeping all the computers having the same [local] files on them.

First was the record, then the cassette, the CD, then came along Spotify... that really did change everything!

Yes!

 

As long your the music is in your I-Tunes, you may have to transfer it first to their, then Go to File --> Import Playlists --> I-Tunes - And choose what you want. Also, this can be all uploaded in the very beginning when setting up the Spotify app on your computer.

 

Cheers!

Corrections, Under preferences, you can change the file source from I-Tunes to whereever your local files are stored on your disk.

You can sync your own music files to Spotify apps on all your devices. So you can combine your music any way that you like.

 

It isn't possible to upload your own music files to the Spotify servers for syncing back to your devices though. That would require extra music licensing, and so extra charges for customers.
