Local Files

Local Files

So I just got a iphone from android and downloading songs from my computer to android had 0 problems and now with apple the songs aren't even showing up like I have a playlist of entierly local file songs from a unreleased album and when I go to that playlist on my phone it doesn't even show up. If it works for android like a charm why can't it work on apple as easy

Hey @Austin7641! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^


To add local files to a mobile or tablet you first need to import them via the desktop app, then add them to a playlist to sync to your device.

If after adding them to the desktop app you’re unable to sync them to your mobile or tablet, check the following:

  • You must be logged in to the same account on both your desktop and your mobile or tablet.
  • Both devices must be connected to the same WiFi network.
  • Ensure you have the latest version of the Spotify app installed (on both devices).
  • Make sure your device’s firmware is up-to-date. 

Be sure to check this help site out for more details about local files.


Let me know if that helps, thanks!^^
