Spotify Legend



We have an extensive record collection, but if the track you’re after hasn’t found its way on to Spotify yet, don’t worry! You can add any personal music you have with a feature called Local Files.

In Settings, scroll down to Local Files and select ADD A SOURCE. Any files you add can be found in Your Music under Local Files. They’ll be listed like any other standard playlist.
