I currently have two computers (one for work, one for home) and a phone. For months, if I make a playlist on one, all of the songs appear on the others. Since one of the recent updates, now if I make a playlist on my work computer, it appears on the my home computer and my phone, but it has zero tracks. The actual songs in the playlist don't seem to be syncing at all. The same thing happens if I go the other way (making a playlist on my home computer and trying to play it on my work computer later). I'm stuck as to what to do next, but I don't want to have to make three playlists every time I want one.

This is correct. I followed the same steps:
1.) Open Spotify on my Mac
2.) Open Spotify on my iPhone
3.) Make sure both are connected to internet (not in Offline Mode)
4.) On Mac Spotify, at the bottom right switch to listening from Mac to listening from iPhone (screenshot 4)
5.) From iPhone play one of the songs that wasn't showing up on your Mac.
6.) That song will be playing now on your Mac Spotify add this song (click the +), which will force it to sync everything up.
7.) From Mac Spotify, add the song playing (click the +), which will force it to sync everything up.
Worked like a charm. Sad it has to be this difficult Spotify!
I tried EVERYTHING in this entire thread and NOTHING worked, including the ForceSpotifySync app. I FINALLY found a solution that worked for me and hopefully this helps:
Just go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and delete the "host" files. This isn't dangerous for your computer ( Here is a thread that proves it's safe ).
I don't know why it works but after I did that and restarted Spotify if solved my problems. Also worth mentioning, before doing this my playlists would load but songs wouldn't play any music and most of my playlists were very wrong (the 65 song playlist on my phone had only 14 songs on my desktop). I re-downloaded Spotify to try to fix this and then all my playlists were completely empty and I had no liked songs. That's when I found this really hard to understand video that gave me my solution:
Hopefully this helped!
