As obvious within the screenshot, the function is obtainable below the Import part within the app settings. The function is labeled “Show device files” and out there as a toggle. So, as soon as the function rolls out, you’ll in a position to activate the toggle. Once you activate the function, Spotify will then scan your system’s inner storage for saved audio information and import them on the app.
It is at the moment unclear whether or not the native music playback help can be a premium function or not. It needs to be famous that YouTube Music already permits customers to play audio information from their native library without cost. So, we may even see Spotify including this function free to its customers as nicely.
Note that not all noticed options land too early. Developers take time to roll them out.
In associated information, Spotify was noticed testing the Stories function as nicely. The function is at the moment in a public beta. Tapping on the Stories icon reveals a sequence of images and movies shared by artists. The content material proven in each story will get auto-deleted precisely after 24 hours of posting it, much like what you see on a variety of apps, together with Snapchat and Instagram.
