Spotify has become in recent years the most used alternative to avoid having to download music with Ares, eMule or any other download system, mainly due to the convenience of use, and for being on this side of the law.
It is also an application that has versions available for different platforms, so we can use it both on our computer and on our mobile phone or tablet just by having it installed, and always using the same account, which allows us to synchronize those songs that we like the most
Of course, we can not only through Spotify access the inexhaustible library of songs and music albums of the most diverse styles, but we can also upload our favorite music, and with all this create playlists that we even have the option to share with other users.
That is why in this article we will know how to upload music to Spotify and also make it an essential tool for listening to music, and in the meantime abandon downloads through P2P and similar.
Your music on Spotify
The first thing we should know about Spotify is that it is basically a very popular streaming service these days, which also offers a number of features that even allow us to use it as our favorite music player, on any platform on which it let’s use, be it Windows, Android or Mac.
Through Spotify we can not only listen to thousands of hours of music completely free of charge, but we can also upload the songs that we have stored on the computer or other media such as external discs or memory cards to be able to listen to it on any device we have Spotify installed.
This fact provides us with unique flexibility since nothing is more comfortable than having all our music at our fingertips wherever we are.
Is it possible to upload music to Spotify?
Many Spotify users use the application in its free or paid version accessing their favorite songs through the extensive library offered by the platform, without being able to know exactly if it is possible to upload their own music to Spotify.
It is not strange that maybe at some point it happens to us, that despite the huge and almost inexhaustible amount of songs available on Spotify, we find that perhaps one of the songs that are our favorites is not available in the service.
The frustration then can be very great, especially when we are determined to listen to a certain song that is playing in our head throughout the day. Of course, we should not despair.
The truth is that Spotify has the functionality that allows us to upload our own songs to the platform, even then we can share them with other users who may also be in search of that melody.
The procedure to be able to upload music to Spotify is very simple, and you can really carry it out to the most inexperienced user within the application. Therefore, we tell you how to do it next.
How to upload music to Spotify step by step
Uploading music to Spotify is really simple, it’s just a matter of having a little patience, but after finishing the procedure, we can have our entire music library fully synchronized in all those devices in which we have installed Spotify.
All we have to do to import our entire music collection and have it available at any time and place through Spotify, is to perform the steps detailed below.
In the event that we do not have the Spotify application for Windows installed, we will have to download and install it, which we can do by clicking on this link. The download of the Spotify installation file will start automatically, without you having to do anything else.
Once we have installed Spotify, and accessed through our username and password, click on the three-dot icon located in the upper left corner of the application window.
A menu will be displayed in which we must click on the “Edit” section and then on the “Preferences” item.
When we are in the “Preferences” page of our account, what we must do is scroll down until we find the “Local files” section, and there we must click on the “Show local files” box to enable this option.
There we will also find some options like “iTunes”, “Downloads”, “Windows Media Player” and “Music Library”.
These options will allow us to select the source from which we can upload music to Spotify. If we select for example “iTunes” or “Windows Media Player” we can upload to Spotify the playlists that we have created with these programs.
In the case of selecting “Downloads” or “Music Library”, we can upload to Spotify all the music that the system finds there.
It should be noted that we also have a fifth option available, “Add a source”, which will allow us to upload music to Spotify from other storage media such as memory cards and external disks.
Once we have finished loading all the music we want to upload to Spotify, we can see how the songs we have selected have been added to the Spotify player.
We can easily verify this by clicking on “Local files” in the left panel of the interface. This will show us the songs and albums that we have added to Spotify in the right panel.
From this point, we can listen to the songs that we have uploaded to Spotify on any device.
