Local Files in playlist not showing up

Newbie

So I have about 19 custom songs in a playlist. They show up on my Android device but spotify on iOS 9.3.5 doesn't want to sync them. When I play one and tap the "Listen on this iPad" button it says "Song not downloaded"

3.1 Reopen Spotify app (MAC) [in case if you added too many songs] [Recommend to do]
4.Make sure all the songs which added can be played in Spotify (Mac)
5.Make whole new playlists (Recommend using different name from preventing sync error)
6.On Mac, check all the songs in playlist whether they can be played or not.
