But this is happening on my desktop app. How do I empty the cache there?

I've got this in my profile:
alias rockout='rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/Spotify/PersistentCache/Storage/* && open -a Spotify'

But if you just run this it will clear your local cache:
rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/Spotify/PersistentCache/Storage/*

I don't think it solves the problem though.

Hey there folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this.

 

Have a look at this thread for more info on how to clear the local Cache. We also recommend performing a clean reinstall of the app, following the steps in this article.

 

Another thing which will assure your account is properly connected to our servers and up-to date is Logging out everywhere and logging back in.

 

Hope this helps. Don't hesitate to give us a shout if you have more questions.

Hi Alex, 

Thanks for the answer, but this is just a workaround. 

Since this problems seems to be as old as the Daily Drive itself, is there a roadmap existing for fixing this bug? I can´t imagine that this is working as designed. And manually deleting cache-files is not a lasting solution... 
Thanks in Advance

Martin

Hi again @RDogPinK,


Thanks for the reply!

 

The Daily Drive Mix should be updating automatically. Do you mind trying to un-follow the playlist, log out of the app and log back in? After that, follow the playlist again.

 

If that doesn't change anything let us know if the playlist appears the same across all devices that you use.

 

Keep us in the loop!

Hi Alex, 

 

Thanks again for the reply. 

Might be a stupid question, but how do I unfollow the daily drive playlist since it is no regular playlist but a generated playlist like the mixtapes? 

 

Greetings Martin

this is clearly a bug.  a minor non-urgent bug, but a bug nonetheless. asking users to do all this troubleshooting is ridiculous.  tell us that/if it’s been submitted to the product team and when they are going to prioritize it or the current eta.  

 

fxck figuring out how to clear caches, fxck logging out of everything, fxck reading old unrelated support articles from 2015.  just acknowledge it is a bug and let us know when it will be fixed.

when you click the 💚 you are following.  when you unclick it, the opposite.  i think.
