I don't know if I'm mistaken, but I looked today at my library. I know there are songs that of course are in the Spotify servers, but I found like 3,000 + songs "added to the library" at the same time and day in 2017. And some of those songs are songs that I have listened in years. I'm confused and happy at the same time, but It looks like the music I had on my PC long ago (I don't have that music anymore, at least not in my pc), was in Spotify, and it added automatically into my library who knows.
There's no way that I have to listen to the whole discography of Michael Jackson on the same day.
ALSO NOTE that the instructions only talk about importing files stored on your PC. To import files from your phone, you first have to copy them to a folder on your PC, THEN add that folder as a source for Spotify to look for music in, using the instructions in the support article above.
No it doesn't work. It used to work, but suddenly all the local files on my mobile are gone. So I tried to download them again, but it just won't. Each song has the status 'waiting for download', but even after an hour, but the downloads just doesn't actually start.
Yes, my desktop and my mobile are on the same network. Both connected to the same reliable and fast AP. This is so bad ...
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.
