I would suggest first trying to simply log in and out again or if this doesn't help reinstalling the Application on your mac.

Thanks. Neither of those options changed anything. However I noticed that even before the reinstall the two machines were in close sync – playing on one machine showed up on the other and vice versa. Also new saved songs. However there is a period of 2 months recently (Late May-July) where saved songs from my phone are visible on the phone, but not on the computer. It’s odd. As a workaround I can play them on the phone then save them again on the computer while they are playing. It works but seems clumsy.

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps. Also make sure to update to the latest version of macOS as I checked and it's latest version is 10.13.6 :)

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!
