[Desktop] Recently Played section not updating anymore

Hi team,

For any reason, the Mac Desktop "Recently Played" section doesn't get refreshed.

The one of the web player of the iOS app works perfectly.

I already did a clean reinstallation of the desktop app and the issue occurs whatever other laptop I use.


(see attached screenshots)


Any idea?

Thanks again!

Hello All,

There is another thread happening over here - https://community.spotify.com/t5/Ongoing-Issues/Recently-Played-not-updating/idi-p/5233455

about this issue. It's only a week old and it's already Under Investigate.

Please make sure you are commenting and voting on this NEW thread.


Just a heads up, this seems to have been fixed for me in one of the recent desktop client updates. Not sure if it will pop up again (I hope not) or if it's still acting up for anyone else.


Finally! Seems to be working OK in version on Windows 🤞


I'm using version and the issue still exists.


iPhone 13 ..just updated my Spotify app and it’s not refreshing my recently played artist. Tried everything from deleting the app and clearing cache and still nothing! 


Same here. Mi PC version (Windows 10) stopped counting songs. Don't know when this started to happen. The mobile version works perfectly but for some reason that only Spotify knows, my Recently Played section it's not updating and all I am listening has gone in the void.
