Hi, thanks for asking in the community!


  • Make sure to read this FAQ about local songs which will clear some doubts on why not all local songs work.
  • Once you are done with the FAQ, try turning them off and removing all local songs from the App.
  • Restart the App and then import local files again, check if it is working now.

If it's still not working then try a clean install of the Spotify App, more about that here. Spotify now supports local files directly in the Mobile App so you do not need to sync it from the Desktop App anymore (Android Only for now).
