My Question or Issue

Hello everyone, I am currently having issues with Spotify on windows 10 and on android 8. I used to be able to go to artist and find my recommended artist there from all the songs and albums that I had saved, somehow they have disappeared and I can only view the artist that I follow. This is very strange and I cannot view my saved songs anymore based on artist. On my MacBook however, everything seems to be working fine, I can see all my recommended artists there and there is absolutely nothing wrong, so how come it suddenly has been removed on windows and android, or is it just a bug?

I checked my phone and the feature is still on mobile so I wasn't sure if it was an error on desktop or an update took it away. Since artists you follow only show up under the artists tab (which is still a bad change btw!), the recommended artists below your followed artists helped me easily find other artists I've liked songs from but didn't want to follow because they weren't favorites I wanted updates on if they released new music. It would suck if the feature is gone. I provided an image that shows how the recommend artist section is gone now.

Hey @Nobrega1! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^

 

That's odd.

 

You should find the songs of the artists you like in your 'Library' under the category 'Liked Songs'. 

You'll need to follow all of your favorite artists in the future to see them in your Library. ^^

 

Let me know how it goes! ^^

Peace

My Question or Issue

 

Hello, I noticed that since the last update something has changed.

Usually, in the "followed artists" category, there was at the end the suggestion field with "Artists you may want to follow" which usually consisted of artists who I may have added few songs in my library without following them because they maybe don't release new music or I don't simply like them so much. Anyway having a list of "artist which I like some songs but I don't follow" was useful when I wanted to clean my library a bit. Now I noticed that in the "Followed Artists" category there are just the artist that I actually follow (who are fewer, because of the items limit), while the "Artists you may want to follow" suggestion disappeared.

This is a little bit annoying because I have a lot of music saved and now it's really difficult to keep track on everything I save.

 

I wanted to know if this is because of the update or is it an actual error.

 

Thank You

Hi there @RiccardoValle,

thanks for reaching out !

 

In case you've noticed changes in your app, it might be due to the fact Spotify are always testing out new features and UI/UX improvements - you can read all about it here.

 

Regardless, i saw you mentioned the tracks limit on your account.

I recommend adding your +VOTE to this idea and also subscribing to it to get updates on any changes made.

 

Let me know if you have any further questions 🙂

Hey there @yunagarnet,

 

Thanks for reaching out! 

 

We'd be happy to look into this. It'd be helpful if you can send us:

 

  • a screenshot of the whole app window without cropping the side bar
  • your exact Spotify version

Keep us posted!

This is completely true. I agree 100%

Hihi.

Same problem here. The desktop app became useless for me because I scroll through my recommanded artists to choose the music I want to hear. On the Android app it didn't change, so I can still use Spotify on my mobile...

I'm new in this community thing, how do I send you the things you asked for?

My Question or Issue

In previous versions, artists and albums that I had saved songs from were listed. This was very comfortable to me because I always knew the music I had and it was easier to catch songs that I didn't add. It also let me navigate through all my artists and albums much quicker than typing every single time in the "search" bar or changing the filters. I had total control over what I wanted to listen to next. 

Now, I am forced to follow artists and like albums in order to make them appear in their respective sections. I personally don't want to follow every, if any, artist I listen to. I'm simply not interested. And I also don't want to like every single album. Maybe there's an album from which I only like a few songs, so why would I like it? Yet, I want to be able to see those albums and the songs that I like from them on a list.

Filters are a good option for specific moments, but are nowhere near as effective as those sections (Artists and Albums) were before.

My Question or Issue

I am wondering if there is any way to view a list of artists that you have liked songs from in the past, but are not following on Spotify. The "Artists" page in "Your Library" only lists artists you are following. It would also be nice if the artists in that list redirected to a list of the songs you have liked from that artists, rather than just taking you to that artist's main page (similar to how artists in the "Artists" page works).

 

Prior to the update to the Android Spotify app on May 19, 2020 (Version 8.5.59.1137), I was able to see this list at the bottom of the "Artists" page. Now there is only the "Add Artists" option, which does not provide what I am looking for.

 

I am quite confused as to why this list would be removed from the bottom of the "Artists" page, as now there is seemingly no convenient way to view these liked songs besides digging through your "Liked Songs" playlist. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
