My Question or Issue

This happened today. So on my account, both mobile and desktop, my recently played on my profile have stopped updating since 8 hours. I've played more than 20 songs from my 3 playlists but still no change. Tried logging in and out and checking on web browser. Both android and PC versions are completely up to date too but still my recently played songs and artists aren't updating at all.


Also I've unfollowed a few artists and even my artist followed has stopped updating. Its as if my account has completely disconnected but songs are still playing and i can add and remove them from playlists. Also my private sessions are off and i have enabled share listening activity and i haven't changed any settings manually 


This was working perfectly yesterday as usual. Please look into this


Edit: I've added images to explain better. This is from my recently played songs in my mobile app and my recently played artists on my profile. As you can clearly see they are both out of sync since yesterday and show completely different artists altogether (How is that even possible ?). Since then I've played >10 new artists but it hasn't been updated in either of them

I'm having the same issue. I don't want the algorithm to think I've listened to some specific artists and playlists more than once today and think "Oh, so you're OBSESSED with this artist/playlist even though you barely listen to them".



Same issue on my Samsung Galaxy S9 running Android 10. Recently played songs are not updating at all though I made no changes to my settings since yesterday - the last songs on there are from yesterday night. I made sure the app was updated, cleared the cache, even uninstalled and reinstalled the app but no luck. However, recently played songs on my laptop (Macbook Air) are updating just fine.
