My Question or Issue

Earlier I was able to use the Downloaded song marker/icon as a kind of marker of songs already are in my playlist. However, now this marker/icon is gone everywhere else than in the playlist they are downloaded to (which seems completely *bleep*). This creates a whole lot of hassle when skipping through artists' albums not knowing if I've already heard and collected the songs I like.


Either create a completely new marker which tells that the song is currently in one of your Playlists - and then make us able to show in which particular playlist. Or just simply bring back the Downloaded marker so I atleast can exploit that one...

Hey @QualiAwe.


Thanks for reaching out to us about this, and apologies for the late reply!


We tried reproducing this in our end by following these steps, but everything seems to be working normally:

  • Create a playlist and add Syd by Hosini to a playlist
  • Download Syd for offline listening from the playlist
  • Go to the album containing the song (Soul Search)
  • Song appears as downloaded with green icon

Would you mind performing a clean reinstall by following the steps outlined here? This can solve many common problems that our users experience, including this one.


Let us know how you get on! If you need further help, we'll be right here.


This has also started happening to me several updates ago. It used to work fine. I have followed your steps in clearing data and reinstalling, twice.


I have a OnePLus 6T on Android 10, Spotify version


In my screen shots below you can see that the song doesn't have the download icon but the second screen shots clearly shows that its a liked song that has been downloaded with the accompanying icon in the 'Liked' playlist.
