Spotify is the reference streaming service, and was one of the main responsible for the abandonment of MP3 tracks on our smartphones. And if your catalog today is much more complete than in 2013, when I started using it, it is not always perfect.
In the computer version of the service, it is possible to play local files through Spotify itself. And this functionality is getting closer and closer to reaching the Android version of the service.
Spotify for Android will allow playing files stored on the device
As shared by engineer Jane Manchun Wong, Spotify is finally working on supporting local files on Android. And according to what is said, no more synchronization with your computer will be necessary.
The streaming service is more and more complete, but the most demanding users may not find all their music there and have a separate catalog. Now you won’t need any more apps to play these songs offline.
As you can see in the image, the new feature may be activated in the future through the Settings of the app. Through a button, you can choose “Show device files” on your Android.
It remains to be seen whether or not this will be a feature only available to users premium. But taking into account that on the computer it is not, Spotify can also open that door on Android, even for those who do not pay.
According to the source, this novelty will be active soon. We will be waiting for an official statement from Spotify when it will be available.
