Local music does not remain synced

Local music does not remain synced

Hi -


I have uploaded local music to my iPhone 6 and ipad mini 3. 


However the music doesn't remain synced. I can see it in the playlists, but when playing on my iPhone or iPad, it skips over those tracks and says "cannot be found" or "not synced." It seems my local files only stay synced for a short time and then they "grey out" after several days.

I forgot to add a photo. 


These are the files I added locally. 


For some reason many of the files appear "greyed out." For example the ASAP Rocky files. These are the ones that only play on my desktop. They "appear" in the playlist on my mobile devices. But I cannot play them. 


Hi! Welcome to the Spotify Community! Sorry you're experiencing this problem.


Is your iPhone showing up on your PC?

It makes me all fuzzy inside

Hi Joe-


I actually figured it out. Even though I had "Available Offline" selected on my computer, I must have switched it off on my devices. I switched back on. The music showed up again. Thanks!
