My Question or Issue
I have spent the last 2 hours attempting to fix my local files issue on Spotify. I have scoured the internet, looked at forum posts, reddit posts, everything, nothing works. The system is broken.
Several months ago I was able to add a few mixtapes to new playlists, as the Spotify features was originally intended I'm sure. A few nights ago I realized oh no, only the songs I added to other playlists still appear. No worries, I'll fix it all up soon.
So here is how the system is supposed to go:
1) Add source into local files thing on spotify desktop
2) Create playlist
3) Add local files to playlist
4) Click download on playlist on phone and songs will sync over
Step 4 just doesn't work anymore. I am on the same network, I tried the hotspot thing, I reinstalled spotify on both my iphone and my computer, I literally tried deleting and re-adding the music several times, NOTHING. The feature is glitched, totally broken. No files appear on my iphone, just on my PC, and no matter what I do nothing shows up. And yes my PC is listed as a device in the devices menu. This needs to be fixed asap.
Anyway, I am in desperate need of help because the feature is broken so I've basically been banging my head against a brick wall for 2 hours. And now since I deleted spotify off my phone I need to redownload every single playlist I have, which is thousands of songs. Rant over, help needed, cheers.
