The Daily Drive news changes, but the songs don't. Day in, day out, the SAME music. I'm getting tired of it. How do I refresh or change it?

Thanks for the solution Hjscott316! I cleared the cache on my android device and by next refresh cycle I had new songs! Just go into the gear icon, disable offline mode, and then clear the local cache, and wait for a bit. Glad I can use this feature again!

It used to auto-refresh for me twice a day, but now the songs are 13 days old and counting.

Alos happening on iOS. its like sometimes I'll think some songs are new? but then still recognize the same 10-15 songs that I've had on there going on 2 weeks. 😞

Same problem here. Podcasts update twice a day and the order of the songs also changes twice a day, but they are the same songs.

If Daily Drive pulls songs from playlists I've made, doesn't it stand to reason that I like those songs, but I don't LOVE those songs? Their inclusion in Daily Drive is making me sick of them and ruining my self-created playlists. Is that the goal??? Mostly love the new songs though so just increase that ratio, please.

I just had this issue solved with customer support. After a lot of them telling me to listen to more music (wrong) they finally decided the was an issue with my offline cache. They did something on the back end and within 24 hours I *finally* had new songs on my list. Good luck!

So I recently got the Daily Drive playlist on my account and it's been 3 days and yet the second and third day have not been updated with new music or news.

It's still stuck on fridays news (the 6'th of March)

The weird thing is that the first day it updated twice, I just can't for the life of me figure out if there is something on my end I could do to make this thing work since I really, really love the concept.
