Can you add your own music to Spotify?
You can sync your own music files to Spotify apps on all your devices. So you can combine your music any way that you like. It isn’t possible to upload your own music files to the Spotify servers for syncing back to your devices though. That would require extra music licensing, and so extra charges for customers.
