I'm using a premium Spotify account, and am trying to play my local files (that I added through the desktop app) on my iPhone.
I followed all the instructions on this page explaining about playing local files throughout all the devices, but it's not working.
As you can see below, I created a playlist on my desktop app, added local files in them, and turned the "Download" switch on.
Then, I opened Spotify on my iPhone and found the playlist that I created earlier on my desktop app.
However when I open the playlist, it's completely empty.
(The app tells me to add songs to the playlist, even though I've already added local files in them on my desktop app.)
Of course, I have the playlist set to "downloaded" in my mobile app.
When I try to play a song from this playlist on my iPhone from the desktop app player, a modal appears on my iPhone telling me to "Mark the playlist containing this song for Offline Sync on your computer or on this iPhone".
As shown above, the "offline sync (or 'download')" is set to ON.
Another interesting fact I found on my iPhone is that the device does recognize the number of songs (13 songs, with a "downloaded" icon showing as well) added in the playlist (even though the playlist itself "appears" empty when I open it on my iPhone app).
I also checked a lot of the other threads, including the ones below, but decided to open one for my own as none of the solutions provided worked for me.
It would be appreciated if someone could provide me a solution (or even an idea) that will help to solve the issue that I'm having.
