Spotify Not Importing iTunes Playlists

Status: Closed

Device:

Desktop App

 

Operating System Version:

OS X 10.11.1

 

Spotify Version:

1.0.16.104.g3b776c9e

 

Description

I have my Spotify setup to sync with offline files through my iTunes folder. The songs are listed in my Local Files folder in Spotify.

While trying File -> Import Playlists -> iTunes nothing happens.

I've done a complete uninstall of the app and related system files and re-installed the newly downloaded app.

Same problem.

I was going to include the .dmp files mentioned in https://community.spotify.com/t5/Help-Desktop-Linux-Windows-Web/Troubleshooting-Windows-amp-Mac/td-p... those don't appear in the system folder any longer.

 

To reproduce:

Click File -> Import Playlists -> iTunes

 

Workaround: 

N/A

 

Additional information:

Nothing happens when it is clicked.

 

 

Hey everyone, the Spotify Community team here.

 

Starting from Spotify desktop version 1.0.74, it’s no longer possible to migrate playlists from iTunes and other media players. 

 

This decision was carefully made with the goal of creating the best experience for our users.

 

Don't worry, it's easy to recreate any playlist with Spotify. There's also lots of cool ways to customise them. If a song you’re looking for isn’t available, you can still import it as a Local File and add it to your playlists.

 

Thanks!

Hey, Chris (https://community.spotify.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/5747028)

 

Any news? It has been more than three months since your last message, so, what's up?
