Spotify playlists & folders missing when I expand folders?

so I've only noticed this today, but whenever I expand a folder on the spotify desktop app for mac, the folder expanded and everything below it (be it folders or playlists) disappears and just the black background remains. The playlists and folders above are still there though. Then, if I scroll a little up/down, everything reappears.


It's not a massive problem, the playlists are still there. It's just abnormal and a real pain when I'm so used to the way it was. Anyone else had anything similar to this or is it just my desktop app?

Hey folks,

We're not able to provide an exact timeline for a fix, but we'd recommend always keeping your Spotify app up to date to ensure you're on the latest version.


Thanks again!

It sounds like the recent Desktop improvement did the trick for a lot of you which is great news!


This new redesign for the Spotify app on desktop and web is rolling out to all users globally over the coming weeks. So if you haven't yet received it, not to worry. Just make sure to follow the steps in our Status Update to see it as soon as it's available.


If you do get the new look but you're still having troubles, let us know here. 


Thank you for bearing with us this far, we'll be keeping an eye out for your replies!


Have a lovely day 🙂


Thanks Spotify, the new UI has fixed the problem for me (Windows 10).  


The friends whose problem has been solved, most likely newbies.


Unfortunately the problem still exists and this issue is very annoying...
