My Question or Issue

Songs that have already been added to library appear as unadded in artist pages (and elsewhere). Either Spotify has a terrible data model or they don't care about their users. Or perhaps it's both? How is it that it's been 4 years and this bug is still in the platform...

Hey everyone,

 

Thanks for your patience!

 

As the saved version is not the same version saved under The Artist/Album, this is currently expected behavior. We'll make sure to let the right team know this is something you'd like to see different in the future.

 

Thanks again for your reports, we appreciate your feedback.

If you require Votes to investigate an issue then it's probably going to fail and we're both wasting our time here. How many people use the forums? How many people check the Ongoing issues forums? How many people check all the different tags under Ongoing issues forum? Few at best.

Hey @AeroZ,

 

Don't worry, we are constantly following up on these threads and we can assure you we'll escalate this once we reach enough votes. I also linked this thread in an older one.

Spotify version: 1.0.88.353.g15c26ea1 But it occured more than 4 years back. It was a completely different Spotify version back then.

 

Device model and OS version: The issue is device independent.

 

How long you've been experiencing this issue for?: At least 4 years! Probably longer. Can't tell.

 

Here are some more details. Every developer will be able to understand the problem using them:

The Spotify songs database contains duplicates. These two Spotify URIs point to tho same album (from the consumers point of view)

 

spotify:album:3uocz31s0fmZ8SRP1rCM8e
spotify:album:7o8Pkxy7OmloQ1atWwlfBX

 

The first one was available first. I "saved" some of the album tracks. Then the second copy of the album appread and "hid" the first one. "Hid" means, searching for the album title will always return the second version of the album (which does not have the "saved" flags, I applied to the first version). But looking up the album in my "Library" will lead me to the first version of the album.

@delaethank you for putting this issue in terms they can understand. Maybe it will finally be fixed. Kinda doubt it tho.
