Hey everyone!


Spotify's tech folks are looking into this. Keep an eye out here for updates.


Stay tuned!



I've noticed that here in the last few weeks that the number of streams/plays per song has disappeared.  Its hit and miss per album and artist.  A lot of the popular top 5/top 10 songs all show <1,000.  If I restart Spotify it might bring up a few more numbers, but not all like it used to.  The songs I looked at this morning are no longer showing the number of plays tonight, but others are that weren't this morning.  It's nothing consistent.

This seems to be fixed. I no longer have this problem

Hey folks!

We'd just like to check how you're getting on here.

Can you try reinstalling with the steps here for us?
Keep us posted with how things are looking afterwards.

Thanks :)

Hey @MattSuda!

Thanks for letting us know :)

This one should be all fixed up now.

If anyone's still noticing this after reinstalling/restarting their device do let us know.
We'll keep an eye here for a little longer.
