Discover Weekly broken on Linux!

Discover Weekly broken on Linux!





Operating System

Ubuntu XFCE - 16.04.6 LTS
App Versions Tested on :
Spotify version - Both Debian & Snap Packages

My Question or Issue (s)

1. Discover Weekly is broken on Linux - Debian version

My Discover Weekly playlist functionality is broken on Spotify Linux. This is an issue from last 2 weeks. I assumed it was some issue with licensing as Spotify was just released here, but it isnt.

I can see all the songs on the "Discover Weekly" playlist on Windows/Android/iOS version of the app, but I only see 8 songs on the Linux app. No other playlists have the issue. I cannot use Spotify Connect, and play songs from Android/iOS either to the Linux app. The playlist appears broken, please check attached screenshot.

2. All Playlists empty on Linux Snap Version
Because of the aforementioned issue, I tried using the Snap Version of the app, and that shows as all my playlists as empty! 

For both the issues I've tried clearing caches/reinstall/tried different accounts but the issue persists. I understand Spotify on Linux isn't officially supported and its a project by the awesome devs who use it while coding Spotify. But please look into these issues as I use Linux as a daily driver on my oldish Laptop while coding and surfing, and Spotify is an integral part of the experience. Thankyou in advance!

I'm on the snap app version on OpenSUSE and cannot reproduce this.
Is your Discover Weekly playlist still affected?
