hey guys,

as long as there is no fix for the problem I downgraded to an older version (8.4.89.515), where the album section is working fine (in my case it is). 

You can get it here: https://spotify.de.uptodown.com/android/download/1906214

 

Same procedure: Delete cache, deinstall and install the older version from the link.

Thanks, downgrade works for me too.

 

But: downgrade isn't a solution at all. The guys from spotify have to deliver a fix or a patch.

We are still waiting ...

If you've downgraded then try changing the albums display to alphabetical order. My guess is thra you should then be able to upgrade again and not have the problem.

Well, I might work. But it won't solve my problem. Artists and Songs are also in alphabetical order . So I would get three more or less similar listings. 

But imgagine, you discover a new band or album for listening later (as I do quite often), and this one and maybe several more disappear stored between hundreds of albums in alphabetical order ... no chance to find them again easily when want to listen it. 

Or simply something new you want to listen more often (as normal when you discover new music you like). When it disappears somewhere in my huge music shelf, I'll forget about it. 

Without the "recently added " filter and now without access to my album list , Spotify is or will get useless for me. 

Solution!

I may have an answer!

Do you have albums by !!! or other artists with strange characters in their name?

 

I just removed Myth Takes by !!!, as suggested in another thread, and then went back to albums and it loaded immediately!

Re-installed Spotify still no sign of albums!! Has anyone tried scrolling down to the bottom of artists library? Instant app crashes.

 

SPOTIFY THIS NEEDS TO BE SORTED.

Oh, well done thepest! That does indeed address the problem for me. I do have two albums saved by the artist !!!. As others have pointed out, you can't find out by scrolling to the bottom of the saved artists list because then the app crashes. So, here's how to fix it:

  1. In the Android app open saved artists and change the sorting to something other than alphabetical. Or in the desktop app just open saved artists.
  2. Presumably locate any artists with a non-alphabetical character as the first character in their name. In my case, it's just !!!.
  3. Unsave all of the albums you have by them.
  4. Open saved albumns. It works!
  5. Change the sorting of saved albums to something other than alphabetical.
  6. Go back to the albums you've just unsaved, probably by searching for them.
  7. Save them again.
  8. Saved albums still works!

So it seems Spotify have broken sorting for non-alphabetical characters in the Android app. But it can be worked around by removing those saves and/or changing the sorting.
