Syncing Windows 8 phone with Windows 8 desktop local collection

I am not able to do this. I looked at the FAQ and took all the steps.

 

https://support.spotify.com/us/learn-more/faq/#!/article/Sync-your-device-with-Spotify

 

I have the latest winPhone version of spotify available at windows store.

I have my Upnp enabled on my router.

 

I have tried everything mentioned here as well:

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Help-Android/Spotify-won-t-sync-local-files/td-p/410840

 

But my windows phone won't show up under devices on my spotify desktop. 

 

Any ideas ?

 

Being a premium member, I feel that paying $9.99 a month is not worth it if spotify is broken like this.

Unfortunately not, I don't think the Windows Phone application has the needed functionality to play the content.

As far as I am aware, that is a mistake on the help page (which I do believe I have reported in the past) and local files are not supported using Windows Phone 8.

There are major Windows Phone updates on the horizon, but no mention of local file support specifically:
