 ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

Spotify

 

 

IMPORTANT: You will be adding your song into your Spotify locally, so they will not be searchable by other Spotify users and you will not be able to play it on various different devices, only the device in which the song lives on (phone, computer, etc.).

 

These instructions will only work for PREMIUM Spotify accounts.

 

iPhone/iPad

 

Step 1 : Open Spotify on your computer and go to your account’s settings.

 

Step 2 : Scroll to ‘Local Files’ and switch ‘Show Local Files’ on.

 

Step 3: Click ‘ADD A SOURCE’ and select the folder that your song is in. Your song is now in ‘Local Files’ in the menu on the left.

 

Step 4: Add the song to a new playlist.

 

Step 5: Log in on your iPhone or iPad using the same WiFi as your computer.

 

Step 6: Go back to ‘Local Files’ and switch on ‘Local audio files’.

 

Important: You need to allow Spotify to find devices in the prompt that shows.

 

Step 7: Download the playlist with your local files.

 

Step 8 : Your song can now be played through Spotify.

 

 

Android

 

Step 1: Open Spotify on your computer and go to your settings.

 

Step 2: Scroll to ‘Local Files’ and switch ‘Show Local Files’ on.

 

Step 3: Click ‘ADD A SOURCE’ and select the folder that your song is in. Your song is now in Local Files in the menu on the left.

Please note that this CAN NOT be done in the YouTube Music App.

 

Step 1: Got to YouTube Music and login to your YouTube Music account.

 

Step 2: Drag your song’s file to any surface on the website.

If you are having trouble, you can follow along with the video below.

 

 

 

Amazon Music

 

Unfortunately, Amazon prohibits uploading or importing personal music to Amazon Music accounts so this is not possible. The easiest way to play your song through an Amazon Echo device is by simply pairing it to the device with your song via bluetooth. Your audio will now play through the Amazon Echo speaker.

 

 

Apple Music

 

Follow the step by step instructions at the top of this post to import your song to Apple Music.

      Hey Donny — the video provided shows step by step instructions to get a song from your itunes library to your phone: https://youtu.be/Q-xHBayUHlI. Don’t forget to download the song from your Songfinch Song Page and store it on a playlist in your itunes. If you’re still having trouble, it may be something with your computer or phone connection and you may need to contact Apple for further assistance.

    Hey just and FYI. I have an iPhone and was able to just directly download it to my phone. Yay!

      Thanks for that note — we’ll dig in. It would be amazing if Apple allows you to download files directly to your phone! 🙂

    Since this song will be for my girlfriends birthday, how can I send the song to her iPhone device?

      Hey Tonnes — you can send her the song page URL and she can stream it there via the internet as well as learn about the artist, read the lyrics and if you added on a photo slideshow, she can watch it there as well. 🙂 We also have an add-on that is going live in the next couple weeks that allows you to add your song to Spotify, Amazon Music, and/or Apple Music. If you’d like some information about that, please reach out to us at support@songfinch.com and we’d be happy to provide details on that. 🙂 Thank you!
