How to Upload Music to Spotify

When you use the Spotify desktop client, any music files found in your Music or iTunes libraries are automatically added to your Spotify library. If you have music in other folders or sources and want to add them, you can do so through the client's interface as part of the Settings menu.

Adding Local Files

Adding new files from your computer to your Spotify library takes place entirely within the Spotify desktop client. While the process isn't difficult, the option can be a bit difficult to find without knowing where to look.
