My Question or Issue

Are the daily mix playlists supposed to be static playlists?

In the Windows 10 desktop application in the Made For You tab of the Your Library section of the sidebar, my daily mixes are all static playlists (their contents may change daily) that end when their last track plays.

For comparison, I will include a link to a daily mix currently included in my 'Made for you' tab, and as much information about an older daily mix I found in my recently played tab.

 

Current Daily Mix : https://open.spotify.com/playlist/37i9dQZF1E388P8q5lSiov

Older Daily Mix: When I cursor over it in the application, the ... bubble was missing.

 

Disclaimer: I have tried uninstalling the application, then restarting my computer, then reinstalling the application, and then restarting my computer before making this.

Upon further examination of my situation during normal use, my issue remains. I also recogniseed further differences between the older and newer available playlists. The older and more functional playlists have the different subtexts for the playlists than the static playlists that are only updated daily.

 

The older, preffered playlist format has the "Your favorite music, plus new discoveries you'll love. Always fresh. Featuring **artists** and more. Made for **username** by Spotify **dot** Endless Mix" subtext.

 

The newer, less preffered playlist format only has "**artists** and more Made for **username** by Spotify **dot** 50 songs, **playlist playlength**" as the subtext.

 

This issue would be resolved if the "Made For You" tab of the "YOUR LIBRARY" section of the side bar had the "Your Daily Mixes" section link to the endless mixes instead of the playlists with a derterminite length, as the endless mixes have more options for choosing what content does or doesn't belong, and doesn't require user input for restarting the playlist after the 50th track finishes, as the presently linked playlists would require.

 

It is just frustrating that I only have acces to only one of the endless mixes, when they are supposed to be what populates the "Your Daily Mixes" section of the "Made For You" section instead of the static playlists, when the 'endless mix' playlist still updates its thumbnail and content.
