Yet another thread about greyed out songs in playlists

Was anyone able to resolve this?  I’m having the same problem.  Thanks.

I have the similar issue here. Latest MacOS Sonoma 14.0 , latest Spotify-App.

When opening the "Your Mix of the week"-Playlist, around 50% of the songs are greyed out.

When I visit the artist's list in Spotify, that song is playable.

When I go to my iPhone these songs are not greyed out, but are NOT playable. Just nothing happens, when clicking on them.


Any experiences in trying to get refund? I've got most of my music on CD and Vinyl either (I'm too old, to be totally dependant on streaming 😄 ), so I am pretty fed up with this arrogant Landlord Mentality behaviour, as it seems the issue has not been fixed for years?!

Hey folks,

We just stumbled across this thread, apologies for the late reply!

@Oh-look-a-Spot could you confirm that you haven't maybe hidden those songs from your playlist?
When hidden, they look like this: 


What could also be causing the described behaviour is you having blocked an artist.
Should this be the case, the artist will not play on desktop and will have a visible 🚫 sign on mobile 🙂

Note: A screenshot of how your playlist looks like would be of great help!

We'll be on the lookout for your reply and do our best to get to the bottom of this.

P.S. The same applies for you, @Lourdes2021, in case the issue still persists on your end!
