Recently Played Artists Missing




 United States 



Operating System

IOS 12.1


My Question or Issue

 Today my recently played artists disappeared from my account. Only my playlists are visible when looking at my account. I have restarted my phone and reinstalled the app several times. Recently played artists was visible until today

Hey folks,


Can you restart the app and see if your recently played artists appear? 


If it's still not working, please try the steps below and let us know how it goes:

  1. Reinstall the app to make sure you're on the latest Spotify version by following these steps.
  2. Once you've reinstalled the app, launch Spotify
  3. Click away to another profile and back to your profile page or try restarting the app.

For any issues with the setting "Show my current top artists", toggle it off and on again and see if it works. 


If the issue persists after that, make sure to click the +VOTE button and leave a comment with the Spotify version you end up with after reinstall, and your device/OS. 


We'll be keeping an eye on your replies!

Try force quitting the app by double clicking your home button and swiping up of the Spotify app. If this doesn't work, give your iPhone a restart. If there's still no resolution, delete the Spotify app and give it a quick re-download.


Is your device updated to the latest version? Is the Spotify app updated to the latest version? 


If problems still persist could you tell me the exact version of the spotify app you're running and exact version of iOS you're using? I'll try and find a solution for you!




Phone: Moto G5 plus

Spotify version:


Issue: 'Recently Played Artists' is no longer displayed on my profile page either on the phone app or desktop app.  Only 'Public Playlists' is displayed.  Though for the desktop app,  'Recently Played' playlist  is viewable on list on the left side of the screen, but not on profile page. 


Things I've tried:

Logging off/on (both phone app and desktop app) 

Unistalled app on phone, Restarted phone, reinstalled app

Chatting with Spotify tech support

   - tech deleted my offline cache and asked me to uninstall/reinstall


Thanks for the help!
