My Question or Issue

Saved albums is no longer working for me on the Android app. I just get the constantly spinning green circle. Saved songs and artists still works. Also saved albums is still working through the Android Auto integration. I suspect it's since the update to version 8.4.91.861 I received yesterday. I've tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling the app but it makes no difference.

 

Is this a bug?

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!

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.

Yeah same here on Android 8.0. I've deleted the cache and data as per previous recommendations before uninstalling and reinstalling but the issue persists.

Same here. I also cleaned cache, deleted application, reinstalled etc. but when opening 'albums' I see tge green circle rotating. The lists unter 'artists' and 'songs' are working without problem. But I never use these features, only the 'albums'. So I'm finding it quite uncomfortable to handle with actually . 

 

Windows application and webplayer are showing saved albums without any problem .

Exactly the same for me, as well.

Reinstall, delete cache, logout/in - no joy.

Spotify, can you at least acknowledge that your are looking into this please?

I'm paying for a Premium service and expect better customer support.

Thanks in advance.
