Liking songs doesn't sync between the mobile and the desktop app

We've received reports that when liking song from the mobile app, it won't appear in the Liked Songs on the desktop app and vice versa (liking a song from the desktop app doesn't add it to the liked songs on the mobile app). This is being investigated.

Hey folks,


Thanks for your patience while we looked into this issue.


We’re happy to say that this should now be fixed for everyone! Just make sure your app is updated to the latest version.

Hi everyone!


Here's something you can try out to force a re-sync between the desktop and the mobile app:

  1. Fully close Spotify on your PC (make sure it's not running in the Task Manager), then open the mobile app instead and add a song to your Liked Songs.
  2. Wait a few seconds, then set Spotify to offline mode. This is done under the app's settings. Close the app afterwards.
  3. Launch Spotify again on your phone, set it back to online through the settings, then launch Spotify on the desktop as well and go to your Liked Songs to check if the re-sync was successful.

Let us know how it goes. Cheers!


this "premium" service is garbage. canceling after this month.



The syncing between the web player and desktop is not working properly, all the songs liked on the web player sync to the desktop but the songs that are liked on the desktop don't sync to the web player so when I like them again then it starts showing them differently instead of syncing

I use windows 10, Spotify's latest version



Have an issue between W10 app and other devices all showing higher count of liked songs than the android app.
Redmi Note 9 Pro running MIUI 12/Droid 11
Windows 10 App holds 5038 liked songs on the playlist, Droid app 5014 - settings are to show even unplayable songs.


Since syncing seems to orient around the mobile app being triggered on and offline, any idea?
