My Question or Issue

The Local Files option where you can make Spotify play the songs in on your laptop is gone. This option allowed me to enjoy music that are not uploaded on Spotify, such as personal music or other unpopular ones. Now I can no longer find the option for "show Local Files". I don't know if this is happening just to me or to everyone else too but please fix this 😞

Hey there @huisu0630


Thanks for searching for the answer you need here! 


Not being able to see the local files setting on the desktop app could mean your account is undergoing a test of app improvements and new features. In other words, the feature could be missing only temporarily before being launched to users in its updated version. 


We suggest you check this help article for more info about our test features.


Tip: Make sure you don't miss a thing by enabling automatic updates on your device.


Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any more questions.
