So i follow quite a large amount of artits on spotify (139)
And for the longest time ever i have not been getting any notifications at all when it comes to if they released a new song or not. i follow release radar and all of that as well. But a lot of the songs that are new i rarely find out unless i brows the internet searching for the artists.
Now im running windows 10 with the latest version of the application.
But this issue has been ongoing for quite some time unfortunately.
i have the option show announcements about new releases on as well.
I think you are not getting alerted because you are proably did not click the "email notifications button" but I think you should check back frequently on spotify if you aren't getting alerted. Just make sure to sign up for email alerts.
