Can't like songs

Solved!

Can't like songs

I can't like songs. I've tried manually searching and liking, no luck. I've tried using the heart icon and the drop down list to select like, but no luck. My like playlist currently has 4548 songs, so it's not a limiting issue. No error comes up, just can't like anything. I've tried reinstalling twice and it still isn't fixed.

 

I have a premium account, and this is on a Samsung s8.

Hey @Greasynips

 

Thanks for your quick reply 🙂 

 

If the clean reinstall didn't do the trick, there's also a few other things we can try. Can you make sure that Spotify has all necessary permissions enabled?:

 

  1. Open your Settings menu.

  2. Scroll down to find Spotify and open the app settings.

  3. Enable everything you see.

 

It's also a good idea to exclude the app from any Battery optimization software that might be active on your smartphone.

 

If afterwards the issue persists, could you log in with a friend's account on your phone and try to add a song to the Liked Songs playlist?

 

Keep us posted 🙂

Hi @Greasynips,

 

Welcome to the Community 🙂

 

You mentioned that you've already reinstalled the app, but would you mind going through the steps of a clean reinstall, as it's more thorough than a normal one?

 

On another note, could you let us know if this issue is also happening on a different device?

 

We'll keep an eye out for your reply!

Hi, I've followed the steps of a clean reinstall on both occasions. I just tried on my laptop, and it successfully liked the song. Still no luck on my mobile though.
