Hey there folks,
We've seen reports about the Genre Filters in Liked Songs (available only in certain markets) showing a message that "Filters are hiding some results" without actually filtering songs. In addition, some of the users reported that genre filters are completely gone. This is being investigated.

to say I'm heartbroken right now would be an understatement. out of nowhere the genre tags above in Liked Songs stopped working for me. anytime I went to use it, it would say "filter preference restrictions" despite never changing any filters/options.
so I closed it and reopened. Still gone. restarted my phone. Still gone. deleted and redownloaded Spotify. Still gone!
I'm so mad, it was so so so handy having those tags to filter my Songs and no I don't want to listen to my music via "mixes' it's not the same - please don't tell me Spotify has removed this feature 😭
If anyone can please help me on this it would mean a lot!
Same..I hope this gets fixed soon…
This began happening to me today. I have had genre in my liked playlists for a while. And suddenly today when I attempted to use a genre tab, no songs showed up. I followed the advice on this thread and other issues with the playlist started. Deleted and reinstalled the app and the genres disappeared altogether. Uggh! I wish I had made playlists of the liked songs from each genre before this happened. So annoying now I will have to do that manually. Seriously doubting my subscription now. Why would the feature suddenly be taken away when I have had it for a long time?
Just set up brand new phone today (s20) and genre feature is non existent. Tried logging off and on and still no go.

My Question or Issue
My Genre/Mood filter is gone and I don’t know why. I’ve tried everything 😩
I tried all the solutions since my genre section disappear. I got on Spotify customer service and confirm it’s not part the latest update which is unfortunate since that was the best thing about Spotify. It has definitely ruin my music experience, hopefully they bring it back.
Having the same problem today too. Originally the genre tabs did show up but wouldn’t show any songs. I did the steps to fix it but afterwards I didn’t have any genre tabs at all. I did the other steps to fix that problem but it wouldn’t work. I logged out, cleared cache, deleted app, and restarted iphone, and it still wouldn’t work. Not sure where to go from here
