Hey there folks,


Thanks for posting about this here in the Community!


If you're having troubles seeing and streaming local files from your mobile device, we'd first recommend making sure of the following:

  • Log out and back in your Spotify account on each device.
  • You're logged in to the same account on both your desktop and your mobile or tablet.
  • The Spotify app is not set to Offine on either device.
  • Both your desktop and mobile devices are connected on the same network connection.
  • The file types of your local files are supported by Spotify. You can find more info here.
  • In order to download local files to your mobile device, you'll need to have a Premium subscription. Find out how to check your subscription status.
  • There’s enough free space on the device’s memory (we recommend at least 1GB).
  • You have the latest version of the Spotify app installed (on both devices).
  • Your devices' firmware is up-to-date. 
  • You can only download music and podcasts to a maximum of 5 separate devices for a maximum of 10,000 songs per device.
  • In your router settings, check that UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) is enabled.
  • Windows shows your network as private and not public.
  • Spotify is set as an exception in any firewall or internet security program. 

If none of these do the trick, you can create a mobile hotspot on your mobile and connect your PC to this hotspot via wifi. Syncing the local files should then work.


If you're still having troubles, don't hesitate to let us know by starting a new thread in the related Help Board. We'll be happy to lend a hand.


Have a lovely day 🙂

Hi guys!  I love Spotify and I use it all the time.  In the car on my phone, at work on my Windows PC, at home on my Mac.  I wanted to offer some feedback based on how I find myself using a couple of playlists.   I have a Current Favorites playlist as well as a Past Favorites.  I use Current Favorites to hold music that I'm in love with at the moment, where no matter which song plays on it, I will love hearing it.  I use Past Favorites as a kind of archival place for songs that used to be on Current Favorites.   What I find myself doing is, as I get tired of songs in Current Favorites, I right-click the track and add it to my Past Favorites playlist.  Then I delete the track from Current Favorites.  Totally not difficult, but it would be cool if there were some simple feature for doing this in one step.  A way of "retiring" songs.  If it were easy enough to kind of bind two playlists together like that, with one being the 'current' or 'active' playlist and the other being the catch-all, archive playlist, I would use this process more often.  I might have a Current Indie Favorites / Past Indie Favorites, or maybe a Current Trip-Hop Favorites / Past Trip-Hop Favorites, etc.  You get the idea.   I do this because while I might be tired of a song now, in a few months I would probably like to hear it again but may have forgotten it by then.  I don't want to have to go through my scrobble history to see what I listened to on Spotify months ago, in hopes of re-discovering music I used to love.

PC users:

Go to C:/Users/<Name>/Appdata/Roaming/Spotify

1. Make a new empy text file
2. Name it Spotify_new.exe
3. Right click the file and make the file read only

1. Make a new empty text file
2. Name it Spotify_new.exe.sig
3. Right click the file and make the file read only

Spotify will not be able to update because it can't delete the files, because they are read only, all future upgrades will fail.

This method is easy to use and permanent.


Mount the image and replace the application in your Applications folder with the downloaded one
Now to make sure Spotify doesn't auto-update:
Go to your ~/Library folder - you can do this in Finder by doing shift+cmd+g and typing "~/Library" without the quotes and hitting enter
Go to Application Support/Spotify
Delete Spotify_new.archive and Spotify_new.archive.sig (if they are there)
Now open your favorite text editor, I used TextWrangler
Make two blank documents and save them as "Spotify_new.archive" and "Spotify_new.archive.sig" - without the quotes, the same file names as the ones you deleted
Right click each file and go to "Get Info"
Check the "Locked" button on each and close the info window
You should now see a small lock icon on each file
Restart Spotify and enjoy 0.8.5 without auto updates to 0.8.8
