Hello,

 

I have songs on my PC that are not on spotify servers.

 

But, i wish to listen them elsewhere. for exemple, on my PC at work.

 

I saw that's possible to import tracks from personnal libraries, as shown here:

http://www.spotify.com/fr/about/local-music/

 

But at home i do not see the button "import music"...

 

how to do ?

Hey there,

 

Thanks for posting about this here in the Community!

 

We want all the world’s music and podcasts on Spotify, but availability can vary over time and between countries, depending on the permissions from rights holders.

 

We add new content to Spotify every day, so if you can’t find something you’re looking for right now, it may appear (or reappear) soon. You can also find more info about this here.

 

In the meanwhile, if you have a song you can't find saved as a file on your device already, you can import it. You can find more steps on how to do that here.

 

Keep in mind that may have to toggle on Show Local Files on the desktop app's settings in order to view all available sources for your device and add more.

If you're on Premium, once you've imported them to the desktop app, you can add them to playlists and download them on your mobile device to listen to them on the go.

 

Hope this helps clarifies things! If there's anything else we can help with, don't hesitate to give us a shout in a new thread on the Help Boards. We'll be happy to lend a hand.

 

Have a lovely day :)

Click the local files list, under collection.   Then simply drag and drop what files you want access to.

If the track you have added can be linked to a track in the Spotify catalogue, then anyone looking at your playlist will see the linked song, otherwise it will be unplayable outside your computer.

Looks like Spotify pretty much automatically imports music, at least from your Music and iTunes folders:

What about .ogg files?  My entire music library (with only a couple exceptions) is on .ogg format.  I can see some music a friend uploaded to my music folder (she used .mp3), but not the music I just put in there (.ogg).  Just wondering.
