My Question or Issue
Songs not syncing across devices
Hello all, I am having an issue that I have seen posted many times with no real solution, e.g. every post seems to have a different 'solution', if they have one at all. Anyway, on to the problem: Liked songs are not syncing across my devices. I have Spotify installed on my linux desktop (Devuan, a variant of Debian) and on the side under 'Your Library' > 'Songs' there are many songs that do not appear on my Android phone (Oneplus 6t) under 'Liked Songs' in my library. I have verified I am logged into the same account on both devices. I have tried beginning the songs and then from 'Devices Available' selecting my android phone, which will continue the playlist, even showing the expected songs in the queue, but they do not sync with playlist on my android. I have tried setting both devices to 'offline mode' for 10+ minutes. I have tried clearing the cache, clearing the storage, and even a clean reinstall, on both devices, to no avail. I have tried logging into my account on a second android device (Galaxy S5) which showed the same songs as on my Oneplus 6t, still missing ones shown on the desktop. I am using Version 220.127.116.117 on my Oneplus 6t, and 18.104.22.168.gf61456d on my Desktop computer. Any help would be appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
So I solved this on my own. On my Desktop computer I opened the Songs playlist, highlighted all the songs with ctrl+a, then right clicked and added them to a New Playlist. I opened the Spotify app on my phone and the Liked Songs playlist on my phone showed significantly more songs than it did before and it now has all of the songs that the Desktop app shows.
Hopefully this information can be helpful to someone else, as I saw this question or variations of it asked and never solved.
