Secret "Discover Weekly" Playlist?

Newbie
I stumbled across a "Discover Weekly" playlist that somehow made its way into my Playlists tab this afternoon. I've been listening to it since then and it's great!
 
However, the playlist just mysteriously disappeared from all of Spotify now, and after Googling around to find it again, I found this playlist that seems to be "an EMPLOYEES ONLY test" (I'm not an employee). The description looks like:

It lists the email lambda@spotify.com, which seems to be a internal Google Group that I can't send emails to.
 
Luckily I still have all of the songs in my play queue, so I saved them to another personal playlist. However, I'm still curious about this playlist. Was it just a test? Is it planned to be released soon? This feature seems awesome.
 
Also, here's a feedback form that was linked to in my original Discover Weekly playlist, which has publicly readable responses. It only has 20 reponses so far, so it seems this wasn't widespread. Screenshots are attached.

Hey guys!

Discover Weekly is now a feature for everyone! If you don't see it in your playlists yet, it should be coming soon.

Just found this playlist myself. Assumed everyone had it, but none of my friends did. I'm excited about it none the less.

I filled out the survey this morning. Still only 62 responses. Doesn't seem like this is very wide spread? I'm enjoying it though, the playlist is pretty awesome.

Did anyone find out how to recover the songs from the playlist? I was loving it, but it got replaced witha  new set! Someone help me!

Hey EchoShard, if I was you, I'd make my own playlist and add every song from Spotify Discover to it on a weekly basis. That way, when it changes you'll still have the old tracks, and over time you'll gather a huge collection of what Spotify has recommended for you.

Spotify is always testing by adding or removing features to make Spotify better overall. They're super interested in feedback regarding the Discover Weekly feature, so I've let the team know about this. They'll pass it onto the right folks!

I had one for a few weeks as well, and it just disappeared today! Has anyone figured out how to get it back? I loved it!

This exact thing--I was adoring the Discover Weekly playlist. It somehow codified my music taste when I can't even seem to do that myself. Now it's gone and I hadn't saved all the songs on it. Wishing I could get it back 😕

Actually, if you know how to get to your Play Queue, there should be a tab to look at your history. You should be able to find those songs there!

Discover Weekly didn't fit with our recent attempts to alienate their entire customer base, and has thus been removed.  We regret the temporary innovation, and it won't happen again.

 

Sincerely,
