Local files not appearing in playlists

Hi everyone, since I updated my devices, Spotify does not show local songs which were previously downloaded for offline playback. Now they don't even appear in the playlists.

 

For example on my iphone or ipad, it will say "14 songs" (all are local files on my desktop) underneath the playlist title but when I go into the playlist, no songs are listed.  It only says "Want to add songs to this playlist?"

 

The desktop I'm using is a very old macbook, OSX 10.6.8. With that I'm able to download local files as expected on an android device. Extremely frustrating how it's not working for my apple devices.

 

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the spotify app on my iphone but nothing works. Any ideas please?

Found a similar thread which helped. Changing to a mobile wifi hotspot for the laptop and iPhone worked, although after downloading the local tracks, I had to quit and restart spotify on my iphone before I could see them in the play lists.
