Recent artists and recently played do not match

Recent artists and recently played do not match




My Question or Issue


The last song is still in the friends activity list with an 12 hour ago update. 

But this is a different song than the recently played artists show... 


How can there be a discrepancy? 


Also, it shows a song that was played through a playlist, yet when I open the playlist, that song is not in there.

Hi there! Thank you for contacting us. When a song disappears from Spotify, it can be due to several reasons. Sometimes, the author, record label, or publisher may request that the song be removed from the platform. Additionally, if the song violates Spotify's copyright policies, it may also be removed.


In the case of a song appearing in a friend's activity list but not in the recently played artists list, it could be due to an error in the app's update or the way the information is being displayed. It's possible that the song was played in a playlist that was shared by the friend, but the playlist was later edited to remove the song in question.


If a song appears in a playlist but is no longer there when the playlist is opened, this may be a synchronization issue between the user's device and Spotify's servers. Try updating the app or checking for an available update to resolve the synchronization problem.


We hope we've helped clarify your concerns, and we appreciate you using Spotify. If you have more questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us again. We're always here to help. Thank you!
