As you know, many songs easily available on YouTube. So, recently I switched to Spotify because of its awesome music experience and audio quality.

When I am searching all my video songs on Spotify, I found there are only a few of them available. To listen to a song, I have to use some media player like VLC. If you like me, then you also don’t want to have multiple apps.

So, after spending couple of hour on internet I came through that we can easily share our local music directory to another device connected in same network in Spotify.

Share local directory in Spotify

In this guide, I will take my PC and install Spotify on it, and then I share my local directory of songs.

Second, I will take my phone and listen to shared songs on my desktop to my phone. In this case, before listening the song, I have to first download it in my android device.

Let me clear you one thing right now that all these processes work in the local network only if you wish to listen to your local song shared on pc from anywhere on your Android device. You have to have a premium Spotify account.

Step 1:

Download and install Spotify on your PC and then create a new account or sign in with one already. Then go to your Spotify settings.

Now add that song to your playlist or click on New playlist. If you go for a new playlist, each song you have in your Local Files creates a new playlist.
