My Question or Issue

On my phone I recently discovered my Liked song list is empty. Everything was as it should be last week. Now when I view the liked song lost its completely empty. If I login to my PC client they are all there.  

 

Steps I've already taken:

Restarted my phone,cleared spotify cache and deleted its data, reinstalled spotify,forced re login on all devices, changed password, tried connecting phone to different wifi / network, tried cellular only, tried a vpn.

 

Usually Liked Songs is listed under playlist and it's missing. When I view my library its empty.  I also had the app setup to download all songs. If I like a new song is does NOT appear under liked or my library the lists remain empty.

 

I honestly don't see how this isnt a sync issue with the service.

Hey there @iRunBartertown,

 

Thanks for posting about this here in the Community!

 

You mentioned in your message that your Liked Songs appear normally in the desktop app. If possible, could you try playing a song from the desktop app, then using Spotify Connect to listen to them from the mobile app? It'd be helpful if you could let us know if your Liked Songs show up when doing so.

 

Further, you mentioned that you've tried reinstalling the app and also clearing its cache. If you haven't already, we'd recommend making sure to follow the steps in this Spotify Answer for a more thorough reinstallation of the app to see if that does the trick.

 

If this persists, it'd be helpful if you could let us know some additional details, for example:

  • The exact Spotify version of the app on the affected device
  • Does this issue persist when logging in with a different account on your Samsung device?
  • Are you using an SD card on your device?
  • Any additional details you think could be relevant

Keep us posted! We'll be right here if you need more help.

 

Have a lovely day 🙂

I was able to listen to the song being played on desktop on my phone via spotify connect however held no control other than to pause or play.  Liked songs were still empty.

 

Regarding re-installation the one and only step I did not do previously was delete the android - data - com.spotify.music folder and its contents.  Performing this step during the uninstall RESOLVED the issue after re-installing the app!

 

fwiw alternatively what I did in the meantime as a workaround was create a custom playlist - copied all my liked songs into that playlist - I was then able to view and play my songs on mobile that way.  

 

I'm glad to finally have this resolved.  Thank you!

I have the exact same problem, only that my liked songs disappeared from my pc while I can find them on my phone and on the web player. I did everything and nothing worked. I deleted it and re istalled it, restarted my pc, then I did the step by step ''How can I perform a clean reinstall of the app?''  If I like a new song it does not appear under liked songs and the list remains empty. I have deleted it and re installed it more than 8 times and it is like that 4 days now.

The workaround I used until I finally resolved it was to create a new playlist and copy all my liked songs into it.  That playlist then synced to both PC and Android for me.

 

If you're unfamiliar how to copy a playlist this is the thread I used.
