I know right?!  Seriously, it's like these guys are refusing to listen...

no it's not "only him" with the problem, I am having the problem too, and it's pissing me off.  I have done everything you guys have said more than once... still nothing.

Agreed, none of what's listed in this thread works for me at all. Android phone and Windows 10. Everything that I don't need to download to the phone (i.e. the tracks on Spotify) downloads fine, anything local to my PC just stays greyed out an won't play anywhere else. I'm not convinced it's actually possible.

it certainly works.

 

Things to verify:

  • clean reinstall on both devices (computer and mobile device)
  • offline devices are ok (check here)
  • check if computer has antivirus/firewall active. Either disable them or allow spotify on them.
  • follow steps here
  • remember that both (computer and mobile device) should be turned on (and both on the Spotify app, of course) while syncing.

it should work. I have my local files synced on my iPhone as we speak

I'm having this problem on a sporadic basis, but I wonder if it's because I'm using a work-issued iPhone and the IT security people have installed something that blocks the download over wifi?

I can't find the answer which said try turning on personal hotspot in settings. I had tried all the other solutions and none worked but simple solution of turning on hotspot in settings did the trick instantly for me - thank you whoever it was who suggested it!

After trying loads of the above, mine finally worked when I connected my laptop to the ethernet, turned on portable hotspot, and connected my phone to it.

Same here on iPhone, madattak's personal hotspot trick was the only solution that worked for me, thank you!
