Local Files grayed out on iPhone.

Local Files grayed out on iPhone.

The local files I have downloaded on my laptop work on the laptop, but not on any other device. I have read other topics so I have tried many fixes, but none of them have worked. I have tried disabling firewall, putting internet on private, uninstalling Spotify on all devices, making a new directory, switching internet connections, and re-syncing the songs. The songs show up, but they are grayed out. When I add them to "Liked Songs", the download arrow turns red instead of green. Any solution?
