Can't repeat one song while in "Recommendation mode"

Can't repeat one song while in "Recommendation mode"




MacBook Air M1 (2020)


Operating System

Mac OS Ventura - 13.5.2 (22G91)


Spotify Version

Spotify on macOS (Apple Silicon)



If you play a playlist without the "Repeat Playlist" mode, after all songs had been played from playlist, Spotify enters (that's what I call it) "Recommendation mode" where it plays random songs which you might like. The issue is that you can't turn on "Repeat Song", which I think is a bug, because why shouldn't you have an option to repeat one song that you like. It shouldn't matter where it came from.


I guess that bug has it's origins in the code responsible for blocking the "Repeat" button when "Recommendation mode" kicks in, but because the "Repeat" button serves two different functions ("Repeat Playlist" and "Repeat Song"), the later one has been accidentally turned off as well, while the first one is turned off purposely.


Minimal required steps to reproduce the issue

1. Make a playlist containing at least two songs

2. Turn off "Repeat Playlist" mode

3. Play that playlist

4. Skip song two times
