Operating System

Android 10


My Question or Issue

The heart icon in the notification drawer no longer works.

It doesn't add the song to my library, nor it likes the song.

Please help



Spotify version:

Android 10

Galaxy Note 10+

Issue still persists

The heart icon in the notification tray does not work

Also as many have pointed out, it does not work in Discover Weekly playlist and some others. 




1) Play Discover Weekly Playlist

2) Minimize app /Put it in background (Optional)

3) Open Notification Panel (like the image below)

4) Click on heart icon (it will not work)


The like button still does not works as of Jan 16 2020


Update 2: 

Spotify version:

Android 10

Galaxy Note 10+


The issue is still present and the steps to reproduce the issue remain the same 

Hope to see a resolution soon from the Spotify team. 


Note: Please use Discover Weekly playlist to reproduce the issue as it has never worked on that playlist. Thank you



Final Update: 

The issue seems to have been resolved for many including me but there are some people who are still facing the issue.

I'll keep the idea open until we receive an official word from Spotify.


The App version that solved the issue for me

Also make sure you clear cache, force stop app and restart.

I just said that I've tried that.


Same problem here, voted+. The problem started a few months ago... When I pressed the button, the heart icon in the notification did not change to black, but the song was correctly added to Favorites. With the last update, it is not added to Favorites. Clean reinstall did not work.
