My Question or Issues

 

Some of the songs I wanted to add to my playlist were not available  but I tought "I guess they're not  available in my country." That is until I played my playlist on my brother's phone and the same song was available for him! Just to make sure I tried on my mother's phone as well - also available. I checked our country on spotify account page - all in the same one. So why am I the only one  who can't listen to the songs? (Songs in question are Two Moons by BoyWithUke and I Love You So by The Walters). I also tried to clean cache and uninstall spotify app but nothing changed.

I checked on my mother's phone and my pc as well. Songs were still unavailable for my account. But I figured it out. Once I tried to play it on my pc the message appeared saying something like "we can't play this song until you allow it on your phone". So I liked the song on my phone and it became playable, it was that simple. It seems I somehow disliked it accidentally. I wish that the phone app gave you a clue about this or something, because if I'm trying to play the song it would make sense it plays even if I disliked it, right?  Instead it appears in the same way as songs that were actually removed due to licensing issues or something if you have "show unplayable songs" setting turned on.

Hey @Doniii,

 

Thanks for posting in the Community.

 

Could you check if the song is available on your account, but on a different device, e.g. your mother's or brother's?

 

Also check with a different account on your device. How did that went?

 

Could you post a link to the songs here as well?

 

Keep us posted,

 

Cheers!
