Okay.  So before I saw your post, I went to Setting on my phone.  The "Offline Mode" tab (white circle) was positioned left.  I tapped it.  The green bg showed behind it. I tapped it back.  The green disappeared.  I went to my playlists, and there was the new one.

 

So when the green is showing behind the white circle, does that signify that the option is "on" or "off?"  Or in this case, when there is NO green, am I on or offline? (I told you I'm a newbie!)

When then green is showing, the option is turned on.

That's what I thought.  So everything synced up when I tapped "Offline Mode."  That doesn't really make sense, does it?

Hmmm... the only thing I can think of why this might have happened:

 

there was a problem with the connection, and by turning on offline mode, and then turning it back off, it made the app refresh the connection to Spotify and then it worked.

You simply need to go to settings>playback>offline.
In both the phone and desktop switch to "offline mode" for a good 5 to 10 minutes, then switch back to "online" and it should sync them up!
you may need to close each app, but no reinstalling with this solution 👍

I know it's been years but some migh still end up here trying to solve that problem - so this is how I ACTUALLY FIXED THIS.

 

DETAILS: 

I have an iMac in which I've made some playlists and playlist folders in my Spotify client there. It was working well and I could play them fine on my cellphone, I even downloaded them - that was my purpose in getting Premium. However, when I got to my PC notebook, the playlists weren't there on the Spotify client anymore. I looked for solutions, found this message board... and then suddenly I figured something out by myself.

 

SOLUTION:

Since my cellphone had the Spotify app perfectly synced with my iMac's Spotify client playlists, I opened Spotify on the PC and then also at the cellphone simultaneously. My phone detected Spotify was also opened on a computer and I chose one of the playlists I had made on the iMac, via the cellphone app. This makes the computer play what's on the phone app - and then, suddenly, my playlists and playlist folders showed up in the computer just as they where in the Spotify app!

 

That is:

- Make sure you've synced your Spotify phone app with the computer in which the playlists were made.

- Open the Spotify client on another computer.

- Then, use your Spotify phone app to remotely play a playlist on this other computer.

- The other computer will play the chosen song and also recognize all playlists from the phone app.

- Problem solved! Worked for me.
