My Question or Issue

I added some local files to my Spotify via Desktop and even created a playlist exclujsively filled with the Local Files.  I can see and play them fine on the desktop, but I can't see any on my phone.  I went through troubleshooting steps here (, but did not have any luck.  The songs aren't grayed out or anything, they just don't show up.  They're mp3 files also.

It sounds like you have not synced those songs to your phone + having the following setting enabled:



Also check THIS support article out on how to sync them. 


For me, that's not the issue. 

- Same Wifi connection 

- Premium account 

- Phone setting that you just showed has always een enabled

- Works fine on my computer (even after I made it available offline)

Yet for some reason, it still does not currently appear on my phone (iPhone 6) like it has many times in the past.
