How to Import Local Music to Spotify


“I have songs on my PC that are not on Spotify servers, but I wish to listen to them with Spotify. How can I import my local music to Spotify?”

Though Spotify offers a large music library, sometimes you may find that the songs you are looking for are not available on Spotify. One of the unique aspects of Spotify is that it blends a typical streaming music service with the playback of music you have stored on your own PC. This way you can supplement Spotify’s 70 million-track library with other tracks you own that don't appear in the Spotify database of tunes.

Enjoy local music on Spotify

Normally, when you install the Spotify app successfully on your computer, the program will automatically search and sync locally stored music on your hard drive. But, what if you've got a collection of MP3s spread across several folders or even external storage? Spotify obviously won't know about these, so sometimes, you have to manually add these tracks.

Guide: Enjoy Local Music Tracks on Spotify

Step 1 Add local music tracks to a Spotify

Go into Perferences

Then scroll down to Local Files and select ADD A SOURCE.

With the folder added, any unrestricted music contained within will be immediately imported into the Spotify library. Then you will see the music added under the Local Files tab in the main menu tree.
