Refresh button for Recommended songs section not working properly

Hey folks,


We're receiving reports about the Refresh button under the Recommended songs section under a playlist not working properly. Sometimes it just shuffles the already listed songs, and sometimes it just doesn't do anything at all. The list is only refreshed after actually adding a song to the playlist. If you're experiencing this issue, make sure to add your +Vote to this Ongoing Issue thread.

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.


If you're still having trouble, make sure to post a new thread in the relevant help board here.

My Question or Issue

The "refresh" button for playlist recommended songs sometimes doesn't work, either not generating new songs or just removing the section altogether. Seems to be associated with certain playlists


Hey there @Archon314,


Thank you for your post here in the Community. We're happy to help.


In this case we suggest that you perform a clean reinstall of the app. This will make sure there's no old cache files causing this.


If that doesn't do the trick, can you log in with another account - such as a friend's or a family member's to see if the issue persist?

We'll keep an eye out for your reply.

Take care!


I am able to reproduce this issue on my Mac.

The reinstall didn't help. I don't have another account to check


I'm also having this problem on my Windows 10


same here

I'm having the same issue. Nothing happens when I click on the Refresh for Recommendations. It was working fine yesterday and now it's not.

After the latest update, the refresh button doesn't work anymore. With every update, Spotify somehow manages to break things. Keep up the good work guys!

Same here since yesterday. Been looking for solutions but nothing has worked so far.
