Hey :) 

 

Gonna move this over to the desktop section since it is not a web player issue. 

 

This is a known issue in the desktop client, but don't worry it is only displaying incorrectly in the desktop client, whichever setting you select is saved and used but it will always show as Secret for some reason! It has been reported!

This is happening to me as well and no matter where I look at it (from my profile or when I right click on the playlist on the left sidebar) It always changes back to secret when I restart spotify. How can I ensure that it is actually public and stays public? My username is tcc5a

 

Thanks!

Hi. I can see a bunch of your playlists, including the "liked from radio" but not your starred one. If you change the public/private setting on it again it should be public but I can check for you, if you want to be sure :)

I keep changing it to public over and over and again but it automatically switches back to secret :(

Sigh...........as Peter said above, it's just an issue with the setting not showing correctly. Your sterred list is public as I type this.

When people I follow set their starred playlist to Public (right click on the starred playlist > make public), I still am not able to see it on the Desktop Spotify app...?

 

Is this being worked on? It's getting pretty frustrating.... Or is there something we're overlooking?

Via the browser/iphone/ipad Spotify apps the Starred playlist is public and viewable for this profile: https://play.spotify.com/user/1129364670

 

When I try this on the Spotify app (Mac) there's no Starred playlist?

This problem is not solved and this solution is not accurate. This is not just a display issue in the desktop app. Changing the starred playlist to Public makes the playlist public everywhere until I reopen the desktop client. Even if I make it public from my mobile app, when I open the desktop app it is secret again.  And it is not just displaying secret. It is secret from the mobile app and to other users.

 

Thanks
