Daily Drive using wrong city

Status: Not Right Now

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!

No reply at all. Still have Dallas news feed in Denver. I stopped using the Daily stream completely.

Me too. I loved that feature but I don’t want to listen to Chicago news so I stopped using it. 😞

I love the idea of the Daily Drive.  However, like everyone else mine has me in the wrong city.  I use a VPN so I assumed that it was the VPN that was causing the app to think I'm in Dallas.  But I switched the VPN location to Kansas City and yup, I get Dallas.  Now I'm in Houston so that isn't that far off but I really don't care about Dallas' news.  If you don't have a Houston specific playlist I'll take the national list.  

At any rate.  Very nice feature if the user could specify the location to use.  But I'm about to stop using it too if I have to keep hearing Dallas news.

I just wish someone at Spotify would acknowledge the issue and indicate that at least they recognize that something needs to be done differently.

I just wanted to add my voice to this!  I loved the Daily Drive playlist until they started forcing Chicago news on me.  The app doesn't even have location permissions on my (Android) phone.

I loved the Daily Drive mix, which included NPR national news. But after an update, I get Chicago news.  I live 6 hours from Chicago, Spotify! Why would I give a **bleep** about Chicago local news??? This was one of your best new features, and you almost immediately ruined it.

Has anyone gotten a response from spotify?

There was a response up the chain, dismissive if you ask me:

 

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 issue here, I would prefer to get my NPR headlines back, but I'm in Denver not Chicago.
