If you have an iPod Nano, Mini, Shuffle or Classic, you can only sync local files from your computer in Spotify.

 

You can't do the opposite i.e Transfer music from Spotify to you ipod, that's what Itunes is for.

I've tried everything but I cannot get my iPod Touch 5G to connect to Spotify but it's recognized on iTunes. What do I do?

If you have version 1.0.1 of the Spotify desktop app:

 

The devices section will be coming back in a future update.

 

In the meantime:

You won't be able to see an indication in the desktop client that the device is paired with the desktop client. But as long as they both are on the same WiFi network you should be able to trigger the local files sync by toggling the offline toggle on the playlist on your phone. Just make sure all your local files are in the playlist you switch to offline in the desktop app.

How can I toggle the offline toggle on my iPod? My local playlist is there on the desktop version.

Create a new playlist and then copy  all of the songs from the "local files" playlist into the new playlist.

 

Then in the Spotify app on your iPod touch, click the "available offline" swicth. Make sure both devices are on the same WiFi.

Sorry, bad timing.

 

The latest version of the Spotify app doesn't have a devices section in the left sidebar.

 

It is currently being upgraded and will be back in a future update. (currently no ETA)
