[Your Music] Add LOCAL FILES to Your Music

First of, I'm a huge fan of the new layout. 

 

But as the title says I'd like to add my own beloved local files to the "Your Music". I don't see why this shouldn't be a possibilty. This way I don't need to have one master playlist, I can just have all the music I like under "Your Music -> Songs".

 

Also, as suggested earlier, changing the font size could be usable to many people.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for bringing us your feedback in the Spotify Idea Exchange.


We're marking this as a 'Good Idea'.

Please know your feedback is reaching the internal teams at Spotify, and they're aware of the votes around this idea. We'll continue to check out the comments here, too.

In the meantime there's a workaround we can suggest to ultimately get Local Files added to your Liked Songs on a mobile device:


First, add your personal music collection using the recently updated Local Files feature (Android/Desktop how toiOS how to) where they'll appear in Local Files. You can then add them to your playlists. Just right click > add to playlist.

 

Once your track is discovered on your mobile app, Once your track is discovered on your mobile app, you'll be able to tap the heart icon to add it to your Liked Songs as you would any other track. Keep in mind, that it is currently not possible to add Local Files to Liked Songs on the desktop app.


We know it's not ideal, but hope that it will be useful for some of you.

If there are any new updates, rest assured we'll let you know,


Cheers!

Comment from 2022. People still need this. Having my local files in a playlist is annoying. I dont make playlists. I just want to listen to the album

Hi, team! Recently i bought some number of CYGN's albums on bandcamp (cuz they are not available in spotify anymore) and added them to liked songs. I want to say, that it would be much more convinient to have "like" button on PC where i can select all of tracks i need and like them bulk, but i had to tap on every of ~200 of tracks to like them from my phone. It is very annoying and not always works correctly because of big count of "like" actions, so i additionally had to verify that track added. Please, it will be very useful feature

I would like to suggest a super important feature. In LOCAL FILES, you DO NOT have the option to SORT the order by PLAYLIST. IOS. iPhone.
