The devices section will be coming back to the Spotify desktop app in a future update.

 

In the meantime:
You won't be able to see an indication in the desktop client that the device is paired with the desktop client. But as long as they both are on the same WiFi network you should be able to trigger the local files sync by toggling the offline toggle on the playlist on your device. Just make sure that the local files are in a playlist of their own so that this will work.

 

Follow these instructions:

  1. Using the desktop app, add local music files you want to sync to a playlist.
  2. Download and log into the Spotify app on your iPhone using the same WiFi network as your desktop.
  3. Tap the menu button (User-added image).
  4. Tap Your Music.

  7. Select the playlist containing the local music files and press the Available Offline switch at the top.
