Also, Spotify currently supports local music playback through its desktop app. It is now testing the same for its Android app so users will now have an easier way to back up local files to their Spotify account.
This feature was spotted by Jane Manchun Wong who shared a screenshot of the new test on Spotify's Android app. The new feature will be available as ‘Import' under the settings menu. Here, users will have an option to “show device files” which will make all audio files on the device visible in Your Library. Users can toggle this option if they want their local files on their Spotify library.
