"Create Similar Playlist" function adds duplicates of songs every time

My Issue

 I use the "create similar playlist" function often. Every time I do, there are duplicates of songs in the playlist. Typically only one or two songs will be in the playlist twice, but this most recent time I had one song appear in the playlist SIX times, and four songs appeared twice. In each case, they weren't different versions or recordings of the same song, they're all from the same album with the same URIs. This issue seems to be escalating. 


Can this be fixed?

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.

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!
