My Question or Issue



I have run into an issue with the new version of Spotify. Before the new UI update came out this year, I was able to sync local files to my phone since the feature was able to be seen in the app. However, now, the local file feature can't be seen in the settings menu, and my local files that were downloaded to playlists on my laptop won't play. They will still play on my phone, its just that they do not play at all on my laptop, neither can I search/add new local files to playlists. If anyone has an answer to this, it will be greatly appreciated.

Hey @RaptorRex352,


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community.


Spotify is often testing and this means you might see something different on the app, or get different features to try only temporarily. It'd be great for you to check this Spotify Answer for more info about test features.
