I can't change the playlist description.


I can't change the playlist description.

Not applicable

Plan: Free

Device: Macbook Pro 2018

Operating System: macOS 10.14.5

My Question or Issue: I only have private playlists and as of late, whenever i want to change the playlist description after i click out of the playlist and click back in the description is back to what it was orginally. This only happens to a few playlists. It used to happen to all of them but after i logged out, updated, and quit Spotify, this problem affected only some of my playlists. If the problem was hard to understand:

1) I will change the playlist description 2) I will click on a different page. 3) I will click back on the playlist of the description i just changed 4) The description will show up as what it was before i changed it 5) If i play the playlist, the problem will do away for 30 seconds but then the playlist will change back. What should I do?

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.


I'd also recommend updating to macOS 10.14.6 🙂


Hope it helps.
