[Desktop] Can't see a friend's activity

[Desktop] Can't see a friend's activity


Plan: Premium

Country: USA

Device: Macbook Pro 2017

Operating System: macOS Catalina 10.15.7


Recently I found out that I can't see the activity of one of my friends, even when they're online and listening to music. That's been an issue for at least a few weeks now. I have already tried all the common troubleshooting methods: logging in/out, turning friend activity on/off in the settings, following/unfollowing the friend, restarting my computer, completely reinstalling Spotify, and even updating my OS. I don't think I was able to find any other possible solutions to this issue. Is there anything else I can do to try to fix this?

Thank you.
