Hey @metaldays,

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

In your first post you mention that this doesn't happen on your MacBook, could you give us more info about the device this does occur on? By comparing the two set up we can rule out possible causes of this behavior. Please provide us with the make, model, OS version and exact Spotify version of the device where you could replicate the issue. Let us also know the Spotify app version and OS version of your Xiaomi MI9T and MacBook.

 

Also  - did you have the option to ask a friend or family member to log into their account on one of your devices and see if the podcasts load correctly then? One more thing you can try out is check if the Podcast Charts load properly for you on our web player. You can reach them there using  Search>Podcasts> Top Podcasts

 

Keep us posted. We'll keep an eye out for your reply.

Hi again @metaldays,

 

Thanks for getting back in touch.

 

To check if this happens in the desktop app on your Mac, you just need to go to Browse (on the left section of the app) > Podcasts > Top podcasts. Also, try it on the web player and let us know if the same issue happens there.

 

Lastly, remember to try logging in to a different account on your phone and let us know if the issue persists. This will help us determine if this is an account or device related issue.

 

We'll be on the lookout.

Hey @metaldays,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

To confirm if this is isolated to your account, try logging in to a different account on your devices to see if Top podcasts is still missing. If you can't borrow an account, you can create a free account to test this using a different email here.

 

Keep us posted.

Hey! Tested on a free account, 'Top Charts' section still throws the error though.

Hey @metaldays,

 

Thanks for keeping in touch.

 

Can you let us know when this started happening and if it was after a specific event, such as an app or OS update?

 

We can see that you're using mobile data - we'd like to know if the same happens when using a WiFi network.

 

We'll keep an eye out for your reply.

Hey, it started happening when I started this thread, I think around 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately I can't tie it with any specific event.

Are there any more questions I can answer for you?

Guys, sorry to be a pain in the ass - is there any update on this issue? It's really annoying 😄

Hey there @metaldays

 

Apologies for the delayed response. 

 

Looks like there's a newer version of the app. Could you try reinstalling one more time to make sure you're running the latest version? 

 

Let us know if you notice any difference.

I'm sorry to say, the error is still happening even after uninstall and a fresh install of the latest version. Could we maybe consider moving this issue to a dev for analysis? I suspect it might be rooted deep within the backend somewhere. 

Thanks!

Hi there @metaldays,

Hey @metaldays,

 

Thanks for the info 🙂

 

Just to double-check- does the same thing happen when you switch to WiFi? 

 

In case you're using a VPN, we'd suggest you disable it. We don't recommend using a VPN with Spotify as that might affect the functions.

 

Keep us in the loop! We'll be right here if you have any questions.

Not using a VPN. The error occurs whether Im on WIFI or not.

Think we can forward this to the devs, seems like we are not able to fix the issue for a month now. All my info had been contained in this thread already 🙂

Hey again @metaldays

 

Thanks for getting back to us. 

 

We appreciate the info you've sent, we'd just need to confirm some additional details so we can continue investigating this behavior. 

 

Could you let us know in which country you're currently located?

 

We'll be on the lookout.

Hey @metaldays,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community? 

 

Could you let us know the exact steps you take to reach the Top Podcasts section? The more context we gather about how and when this issue appears, the quicker we'll get to the bottom of this.

 

On another note - does this happen on other devices as well? How about after a clean reinstall? This step lets you start afresh with the latest app version by removing any corrupted files from previous installations. 

 

We'd love to investigate this further! We'll be here if you have any other questions.

I tried re-install but it didn't work, still get the issue. 

Steps:
1. Go to podcasts
2. Click on subsection top podcasts
3. Error occurs as per the attached screenshot from the previous post.

This is not happening on my Macbook, only on my mobile device.

Hey @metaldays,

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

Do you mean that you navigate through Your Library-> Podcasts or Search>Podcasts>Podcast Charts? Could you send us a screenshot of the app where the Top Podcasts section appears, before clicking it and bringing up the error?

 

Also, have you tried connecting with a different network? Does the same issue come up there as well? If you have the option to ask a friend or family member to log into their account on your phone and see if the error appears for also them, that would be great.

 

Keep us posted. We'll be on the lookout for your reply.
