Status: Fixed

Thread: 124136

Status: Resolved

If you don't have the Liked from Radio playlist yet , giving any track on any radio station a Thumbs Up the first time should create a new playlist for you called "Liked from Radio."

Gee, and I was always wondering what you were talking about, when someone mentioned this "liked from Radio" playlist.

Guess I got this bug too then. 😛

Just played Radio from my mobile device and liked a song there for the first time ever.

The "Liked from Radio" playlist was instantly created on my desktop app too.

Also when I like a song at the desktop app now it goes straight to this playlist now.

 

So it seems you have to trigger it first on a mobile device... but that shouldn't really be how it works or should it?

Its definitely a bug by the looks of it, I remember it being announced as a feature on the Spotify blog when the thumbs went live on the desktop version.

I am trying to understand how the thumbs up/down works in Spotify. I am trying to use the playlist radio as a substitute for last.fm, since they no longer are able to deliver specialized content to Norway.

 

So far the radio solution in spotify have been a disaster. Maybe it is because of me demanding to much? Or maybe I dont understand how it really works?

 

Can you please tell me where to find the documentation for this feature/bug? How is it really supposed to work?

 

All I want is the ability to ban songs, and explore new songs based on my listening experience. If I like song A+B then its pretty good chance that I also like song C, or similar. Is this not possible in Spotify?

  • Did you ever have the "Liked from Radio" playlist? Yes
  • At some point did you delete the playlist? No, I changed the name
  • What version is your desktop client? 0.8.5.1333.g822e0de8
  • What Operating System are you on? OS X Mountain Lion
  • Have you ever given a track a thumbs up on your mobile device? yes
  • If yes, which mobile device? iPhone 4S + iOS 6
  • Did the playlist get created at that time? After I changed name of playlist, 'LIKES' from the desktop stopped being added; when I LIKED from mobile the next time, it created a new Liked from Radio automatically. LIKES from mobile now properly are added to new 'Liked from Radio' playlist, BUT, LIKES from Desktop are NOT being added anymore

thanks
