Spotify testing local audio file playback feature on Android


If you talk about music apps, Spotify is easily one of the most well-known around. Leaving aside the company's strange decision to test a Stories-like feature, most of what it has in development can be considered useful. In fact, it's said that the app could soon be able to play files locally.

According to Jane Manchung Wong, the feature was found on the Android version of the app recently. Based on the screenshot uploaded by the tipster, Spotify will soon allow you to import music files from the device's storage into your Spotify library. You would then be able to play your files directly through Spotify, without having to sync the app to your desktop.

From the description in the screenshot, we're assuming that Spotify will be able to scan your device's storage for all audio files. This feature was already made available on the desktop version for quite some time, but now it's finally making its way to mobile devices. The iOS version of the app will likely get this feature as well.

There's no news on when the feature will officially launch, but I hope it would be soon because I have a lot of files for music you can't find on the platform. So, what do you think about this feature? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to for more news like this.
