hey there,

i'm a big fan of thee weekly playlist, but - i really don't know why - spotify decided to use a picture of my ex which was a couple of months ago in my facebook album. this maybe petty, but for me it's more than annoying.

is there any chance to change this, or to reset the cache so it doesn't take this picture?

 

thanks for your help, community!

Thanks for getting in touch. We understand that you want to remove the picture associated with your Discover Weekly removed. Don't worry, we're here to help.

Discover Weekly is a personalized playlist of songs we think you’ll love. It’s as unique as you are! So we also use your unique Facebook profile picture as the cover (if your Spotify account is connected to Facebook).

Don’t worry; your image isn’t used on any other playlist. If you want to hide the Discover Weekly playlist, just right click it and select Make Secret.

If you don’t want your picture used for your Discover Weekly playlist, you can disconnect your Spotify account from Facebook.

Click Spotify (for Mac) or File (for Windows) in the menu bar.
Select Preferences.
Under Social, click DISCONNECT FROM FACEBOOK.
Click Disconnect again to confirm.
Please allow some time for the changes to be reflected on your account.

Note: If you created your account using Facebook, you can’t disconnect it from Facebook.

 

(It worked for me, but only in the playlist itself, the thumbnail on other pages were still the same. So i asked for further help.)

Hey there,

Thanks for getting back to us.

Alright, we have another way of trying to fix this. Please Connect your account to your Facebook profile again and when you do, the playlist should update to your current Profile Photo.

The update would become effective on Monday (tomorrow). Please give it a try and let us know how that goes! We'll be right here to help you out if you need us :)

We hope to hear back from you soon. And if you have any questions, you can count on us.

 

I connected the profile again and after a few days - everything worked!

 

 

I hope it'll also help you.

Solution!

Hi everyone,

 

Thanks for adding your comments here. We are aware of the issue and are looking into this.


If you have a Spotify-created account that’s linked to Facebook, could we ask you to disconnect your Facebook from your Spotify account? We would advise leaving your Spotify disconnected from Facebook for at least a week or two. This will revert your Discover Weekly to the default picture.

 

Once this happens, re-link your Spotify to Facebook and it should change to your current Facebook profile picture within a few days

Hi there, I'm having the same problem as the OP (photo of my ex as well haha), and I've tried logging out of all devices and back in and it's not helping. I've also tried changing my fb photo multiple times, restarting my computer, and signing in on new devices. Nothing has worked so far :/

Hi @DoriLori,

If youv'e changed your FB profile picture, Discover Weekly playlist will update your picture too. Normally, it takes a few days. If not, you may try clearing cache, reinstalling the app. If it still doesn't work you can create a new account and have your playlists and music transferred over. Or, you can get in touch with customer support, they'll be able to update it for you. https://www.spotify.com/us/about-us/contact/

I've even found the cache photo in Spotify Browser caches. Replaced it with something proper (new one's photo haha)  but again after a while Spotify decided restore the old. 

Spotify Browser Cache:  ~/Library/Caches/com.spotify.client/Browser/ (for macos)

I have this same exact issue however I cannot unlink my Facebook. My main picture is my current Facebook one but the discover weekly refuses to change. I'd really prefer to not see my ex constantly. I'd appreciate any help!
