My Question or Issue

Local songs on Windows does not sync with all my other devices (Mac, iOS, Android)

This is what it looks like on Windows:

And this is how it looks like on my other devices:

I'm also not sure why they're different lengths. They are literally the exact same mp3 file for all devices

Hey @boba99999,

 

Thanks for reaching out 🙂

You can view your local files only if you have them downloaded on the respective device. 
They will not sync across platforms because they're not getting permanently uploaded anywhere online.

More info regarding the specifics of how Local Files work can be found here.

Note: Adding the same file from two devices might result in you still having two copies of the same song with one being greyed out. 

 

Let us know if any questions arise!

 

 

P.S. If you're using the same .mp3 file I can't seem to understand why the song length would be different.
Maybe removing and adding the song again would change whatever has caused this? Cheers!
