My Question or Issue
This happened today. So on my account, both mobile and desktop, my recently played on my profile have stopped updating since 8 hours. I've played more than 20 songs from my 3 playlists but still no change. Tried logging in and out and checking on web browser. Both android and PC versions are completely up to date too but still my recently played songs and artists aren't updating at all.
Also I've unfollowed a few artists and even my artist followed has stopped updating. Its as if my account has completely disconnected but songs are still playing and i can add and remove them from playlists. Also my private sessions are off and i have enabled share listening activity and i haven't changed any settings manually
This was working perfectly yesterday as usual. Please look into this
Edit: I've added images to explain better. This is from my recently played songs in my mobile app and my recently played artists on my profile. As you can clearly see they are both out of sync since yesterday and show completely different artists altogether (How is that even possible ?). Since then I've played >10 new artists but it hasn't been updated in either of them
(Samsung Galaxy Note9, Desktop)
(Android 10 with Samsung One UI 2.5, Windows 10)
Recently Played Artists aren't updating. I have my Listening Activity turned On and I also turned the Recently Played Artist privacy settings on and off and it still doesn't update. Please fix!
Experiencing the same issue here!!

Ive had a hard time getting my recently played songs to update or even show up at all. Im
glad I’m not the only one though I thought it was just my Spotify not working correctly. Hopefully they get this resolved soon.
I am very frustrated and I would hate to give up my Spotify premium and switch to Apple Music because I love Spotify in every way but this glitch is driving me crazy! Please fix ASAP.
