My Question or Issue

I have 52 local files i put on my spotify, they are all playable. I want to add them to a specific playlist, but they won’t show up. they do show up if i add them to any other playlist.

 

let’s refer to the issue playlist as “playlist boi”

 

  • playlist boi has 1,440 songs without the local files added
  • local files play and appear just fine when adding to ANY of my other playlists
  • after i add them to playlist boi, they do not appear, not even in the grey unplayable way.
  • they will still show they’re added to playlist boi, and the count will show 1492.
  • when viewing playlist boi on my bf’s phone, the songs DO appear in the grey unplayable way.
  • i tried adding the local files to their own playlist, then merging the 1440 songs into that one. this worked for the night, when i opened the app the next day, they were gone again (but still showed the song count as 1492 as if they were added)
  • in the new playlist, it still has the album icons from the local files as the overall cover for the playlist

i spent a lot of time gathering music from my childhood together and those 52 songs are a part of it… i just wasted a LOT of time if this glitch can’t be fixed.

 

in the attachments you can see the icons. i used a generic purple moon photo as the cover for local songs that didn’t otherwise have a pic, so they’re a good point of reference

 

pic 1: shows songs are playable in local files

pic 2: shows that it already appears as added to playlist boi

pic 3: shows playlist boi, with the local file icons as if they were the first songs. alas, they are not the first songs (or anywhere else)

I'm having the same problem man did u find a fix?

unfortunately didn’t, i’m not sure what i ended up doing. i think i tried
making a new playlist with just the locals and then added the rest? but i
feel like that one broke too, i can’t remember. i think one day it
literally just randomly stopped being an issue. i know that is the worst
solution ever.
