Daily Drive using wrong city

I am using Spotify Premium on iOS and have set my concert location to Minneapolis, however, in the daily drive playlist all of the content that shows up is for Chicago. How can I get this fixed?

 

note; the concert location of Minneapolis has been set for over a few months. 

Hey folks,

Thank you for reporting this issue to us.

We just wanted to let you know that the right folks are looking into this.

We're not able to provide an exact timeline for a fix, but we'd recommend always keeping your Spotify app up to date to ensure you're on the latest version.

Thanks again!

I've got the same issue (in New Orleans, but my Drive playlist is set to Dallas). Following!

Same problem here, I am in St. Louis but I am also receiving Chicago news.  I don't know about you, but if a city is not available I would rather receive national news rather than a nearby substitute.

Same problem.  I live in Denver and they are playing the Dallas news.

Hey there folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community!

 

Keep in mind that we're always testing things in order to improve Spotify. There's more info here

 

However, we'll make sure to pass on your feedback about seeing content from a different location to the right teams.

 

Don't hesitate to let us know if there's anything else we can help with! We'll be happy to lend a hand.

 

Have a lovely day 🙂

Same problem. In Daily drive getting Dallas news feed, but live in Denver.

Following. I also am in St. Louis and am unfortunately getting Chicago local news. I’d prefer a different national or international news if I cannot have relevant local news.

Hi there just following up. 

 

Regarding Saint Louis, KSDK is a local news provider that does an appropriate local news short sound byte every day. Could this be used as an appropriate introductory segment on Saint Louis’ region viewers using Daily Drive? If not, then can I know why not? I have developer skills and a data algorithmic background.

Same problem. I’m in MN and it was national news previously. Suddenly today it’s now Chicago News. I don’t like it.

Any update on this? I’d love to change my city.. I live between 2 large cities and would prefer to get the news to the city I work in rather than the other.

 

I work in NYC but get Philly news 😞 

 

PS I love the feature!

Any update? I’m still having this problem. Also, getting emails for concerts in Chicago and I live in MN.
