What happens when Spotify delete tracks or albums?

Hello, recently i joined Spotify and started to move my playlists to Spotify.

I wonder, what happens when Spotify delete some tracks or albums, will they just quietly disappear from my playlists or i will receive some notifications?

Thank you.

They will just quietly disappear, but the tracks won't be removed from your playlist so they will re-appear in the future if they become available again.

This is really bad 😞

 

If i add some rare track and it will be removed, most likely i will never find out what happened.

 

I would prefer to see message next to track "This track is no longer available"

This is interesting, i just found one track in one of my small playlists which is not available, as I expected to see it.

Right. You have the option to hide unplayable tracks turned off so removed tracks will still be listed but will be greyed out.

This is what I wanted to to hear.

Thank you.
