Local file track not playing with recommendations activated

Local file track not playing with recommendations activated

On a Poco F3 with Android 13 and premium plan. To reproduce the bug: activate the display of local files in the settings -> go to the library -> Local files -> like one of the songs -> go back to the "liked tracks" playlist -> activate the smart playlist with recommendations -> try to select the local liked track in the liste -> the track doesn't start playing and the play/pause button blinks once. When doing the same without added recommendations the track plays normally.

Hey there @technoshark13,


Thanks for posting in the Community and welcome.


We couldn't replicate the behavior you kindly mentioned above. We'd recommend reinstalling the app on the affected device to see if you notice any changes. By doing that, the app can be up-to-date and you can make sure the cache is not leading to this inconvenience. You can see the steps for a clean reinstall here.

If the above doesn't do the trick, would you mind sending us a video recording of this behavior? You can attach the video in your next reply in mp4 format, or you can also upload it to YouTube or Google Drive and make it public, so we can watch it.

Lastly, would you mind sharing with us the exact Spotify version you're running there? Did you notice if this is happening on a different playlist when adding a local file to it? It'd be great if you could check.


Keep us in the loop!
