Re: Discover weekly playlist not updating

I'm having exactly the same issue. Discover Weekly has been giving me the playlist failed to load error message since I tried to check it last week, and it is still having the same issue today. On my web player, it just is listed as "by Spotify."

 

If I click on Discover Weekly from https://play.spotify.com/discover, nothing happens. All other playlists work perfectly.

 

I tried to use the Windows app instead to see if that would work out any better, but for some reason that Discover Weekly playlist is from January 11th, and it won't update at all.

 

I'm a free user on Windows 8.1, and I pretty much only use the web player on Firefox.

 

I miss my Discover Weekly. I hope this gets fixed soon.

Try this in the Desktop app:

Log out of Spotify and then close the program.
Browse to the cache. The default location should be C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Local\Spotify\Storage and delete everything inside the folder.
Delete the folder C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Local\Spotify\Users\<random numbers-user>\ There is a folder for each profile that has been logged into Spotify on that computer account.
Start Spotify, login and the playlist should update.

I tried the solution posted by Osornios and now I've got a playlist called 'Loading... by Spotify'... Discover Weekly doesn't load at all for me now...

Hello @betty_anne and welcome to the community!

Would you mind pasting the Spotify URl to your Discover Weekly playlist to pass along to the right team?
