[Your Music] Add LOCAL FILES to Your Music

First of, I'm a huge fan of the new layout. 

 

But as the title says I'd like to add my own beloved local files to the "Your Music". I don't see why this shouldn't be a possibilty. This way I don't need to have one master playlist, I can just have all the music I like under "Your Music -> Songs".

 

Also, as suggested earlier, changing the font size could be usable to many people.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for bringing us your feedback in the Spotify Idea Exchange.


We're marking this as a 'Good Idea'.

Please know your feedback is reaching the internal teams at Spotify, and they're aware of the votes around this idea. We'll continue to check out the comments here, too.

In the meantime there's a workaround we can suggest to ultimately get Local Files added to your Liked Songs on a mobile device:


First, add your personal music collection using the recently updated Local Files feature (Android/Desktop how toiOS how to) where they'll appear in Local Files. You can then add them to your playlists. Just right click > add to playlist.

 

Once your track is discovered on your mobile app, Once your track is discovered on your mobile app, you'll be able to tap the heart icon to add it to your Liked Songs as you would any other track. Keep in mind, that it is currently not possible to add Local Files to Liked Songs on the desktop app.


We know it's not ideal, but hope that it will be useful for some of you.

If there are any new updates, rest assured we'll let you know,


Cheers!

Simply put: give us a totally seamless integration of local files and subscribed albums/songs in "your music" or whichever name you choose ... Call it "the bucket" and I don't care, I'm here for the functionality, not the marketing.

 

I mean: ONE container, with all items displayed (album covers and so on), searchable and playable exactly the same way.

 

I'm a long time music passionate, and I have a personal collection of hundreds of CDs, which majority is unavailable on spotify. So ATM I'm using iTunes (and iPhone Music app) to listen to my ripped own stuff, and spotify for all the rest. Sounds like a no-brainer to anyone? It's not impossible, iTunes does that exceptionally well.

 

This is THE ONLY aspect that actually prevents me from subscribing.

I'll be so glad to see this implemented, and as far as I know it's still a planned feature. For me, it's the biggest omission from Your Music at the moment. I hope it will be as simple to sync local albums to mobile as it is to sync playlists and albums from the catalog.

I'm currently a Google Play Music All Access Subscriber, and I'm now testing Spotify Premium to evaluate if I change services. This is the main point that makes me think if it's worth it. On Google Play the music you import is fully integrated with the library, you don't even need to download it, it will go to the cloud with all other music

There are still plans to integrate local music into Your Music as far as I'm aware, but how that's going to be done exactly hasn't been revealed. Unfortunately, progress has been rather slow in this area.

Yes thx, I'm have music that is not available in Spotify in my local files, only. 

So what I would love to do is getting these in the search as it would be music from Spotify.

Please Spotify.

 

This is basic, very basic stuff. Please implement this feature. Be my new favorite music application second to Winamp. You're almost there.
