My Question or Issue

I have a song I would really like to see on spotify that isn't there. Is there a way to request a song be added to the app or is there a way I can add an mp3 file to it so I can listen to this song without using youtube or other?

Hi @Alexis98,

 

Thanks for posting in the Spotify Community!

 

You can fill out this form to request that this song be added to Spotify; and you can also read about how to import local files (including .mp3 files) to your Spotify library here.

 

You can also always contact the artist or record label on social media or on their website with your query as well.

 

I hope this helps, and let us know if you have any other questions.

 

Have a good day!

Hi @Alexis98,

 

I was wondering if you also have the Spotify desktop app? If so, you can first import local files to the Spotify app on your computer by going to Preferences, and scrolling down to Local Files. You can toggle “Show Local Files” on, and then select ADD A SOURCE. From there you can choose the location of any music files that you would like to import to your Spotify library; any files that you add can then be found in Your Music under “Local Files.”

 

Then, to make these local files accessible on your mobile device, you can add them to a new playlist in the desktop app:

  1. Click File -> New Playlist
  2. Give your playlist a name and click CREATE
  3. Drag and drop your local files into this playlist

Then, you can log in on your mobile device using the same WiFi network as your desktop app, select the playlist containing the local files, and download it to be able to play these files from your mobile device.

 

Unfortunately it is not (yet) possible to import local files without the desktop app, however if this is of interest to you, you can add your +VOTE for this similar idea here, even though the status is "Not Right Now." The higher the number of votes an idea gets, the more likely it is for the idea to be implemented, and you can read more about how feedback on Ideas reaches Spotify here.

 

I hope this helps, and let us know if you have any other questions!
