My Question or Issue

Hello everyone. Suddenly my artist List got deleted except 2 Artists. I encounter the issue on my phone, my macbook as well as in the web player so it is definitely connected to my account. I already tried logging out from all my devices, clearing the cache, deleting the app and installing it again but nothing works.
The weird thing is that everything else works just fine. Playlists, albums etc. are still there...

Could someone please help me to fix this issue. It is REALLY annoying.

(I already searched the forum for posts and did everything i could so please come forward with a good solution)

 

Thank you very much.

 

Thank you very much

Hey Akash, Welcome to the community! Have you tried heading over to https://www.spotify.com/uk/account/recover-playlists/ to see if you can recover your list? If this doesn't work then head back over and let me know and I will try and help you figure it out.

This isn't what we're looking for--the entire sorting by artist option has disappeared from the app, so going to the "Artists" section only shows artists we follow, not the artists in our library.

Sry but this is not what I am looking for. All the artists disappeared except the ones im following. (which are only 2). It seems like more people are encountering this issue.

Thanks for the quick reply anyways.

Ah! So I've just discovered. As you say there is apparently an issue at the moment. I am going to direct you to this thread, it offers a temporary workaround whilst the bug is investigated .

The new mobile update is absolute trash. My issues:

-  Number siginifinying amount of songs in playlist has been removed

- Deleting songs from a playlist flow has changed; the current song you're listening to while editing isn't lit up "green."

- One step removed from removing a song from playlist sounds good in theory but it will cause erronous removal ESPECIALLY since the songs are now NOT lit up to be green/playing.

 

Overall the menus are clunkier, functions are now spread apart too much in album/artist view. What the **bleep** did Spotify do?? God dammit.

Hey dragon_sound, sorry you are having problems with the mobile app. I would recommend providing feedback to the Spotify team either through a review on the app download page or send them a message on Twitter- Their handle is @SpotifyCares.

Sure, further to this I need to express the gripe that mobile experience has been completly interupted for me.

I do this thing where I add all of the music i want to check out in one single playlist. This can range from 500-2000 songs and i like to pick and choose what i listen to in the list ie. an album that is 600 songs in. From there, i like to delete songs on the fly that i've listened to and don't like (i add ones i like to other, more concrete playlists.) However, now whenever i go to delete song #600, my edit view always brings me up to the top of the playlist and again the current song that is playing is NOT lit up green. So i have to scroll through 100s of songs to find the ones i want to delete during my current listening session. 

It was perfect before, now it's ruined. Why would Spotify make this change? It makes no sense.

I absolutely hate the new system. It's not intuitive, it's illogical and it's a complete slap in the face to everyone who had their music collection set up to navigate via Artists/saved songs. Why WOULDN'T you be able to browse a list of the artists whose songs you've saved? THIS LIST IS BASICALLY YOUR MUSIC COLLECTION and thus you should ALWAYS be able to browse it by artist! And album, and any other metadata associated with these songs. Otherwise, what is the point of saving songs? So I can have them all in a long, linear list that I have to scroll up and down endlessly? Wheras before, I'd think "Let me listen to all of my tracks by xxxxxx" and I'd just scroll right down to that artist and there they were on their own page. It's been quite a few weeks since they implemented this new system and I still curse it every day because of how much harder it is to find my saved songs by artist.

Does anyone from Spotify ever respond to these threads? Anyone who had put an ounce of thought into these recent changes couldn't have possibily thought they made sense.
