Multiple "My Shazam" Playlists Spam in Spotify Playlists

Hey fellow Spotify users, 

 

Is anyone other than myself experiencing an issue where you have linked your spotify account to your shazam account for the automatic tag playlist that sends tagged songs from shazam to your "My Shazam Tracks" playist on your spotify account? (See attatched picture for example)Multiple Shazam Playlists.PNG

 

In the past this link worked splendidly for listening to songs I heard on the radio, with the exception of occassionally adding a song more than once. Now, my Playlists are cluttered because Shazam is spam creating new "My Shazam Tracks" playlists nearly every time I tag a new song. 

 

Any help with this would be appreciated. I've already tried unsyncing my accounts, moving all songs into one "My Shazam Tracks" folder and then reconnecting accounts, but I ended up with the same result.

Yes every single track I Shazam creates a new My Shazam Tracks playlist. It's insane. Been this way for a few weeks.

Yep. It was great until now. I read it potentially could be that because shazam has become Apple's primary music tagging App Shazam's service to other music companies like spotify may be reduced in quality. That's a hunch though; I don't know how accurate it is.

That's why I made this post. I'm looking to find out if there is a solution to this. I'll let everyone know if I find one, but until then I've just unlinked my shazam account to spotify, and consolidated all of the My Shazam playlists into one.

I have the same problem, (iOS 9.x + Windows 10 64 bit).

Trying to solve this, a few days ago I disconnected from my Spotify account within Shazam (iOS 9), and I deleted the (around 5) new "My shazam tracks" playlists, after I transfered all their songs into the initial "My Shazam tracks" playlist, and I reconnected to my spotify account (within Shazam iOS app).

Then, I tried "shazaming" a new song and It seemed to work. The new song was saved into the old "Shazam playlist".

This fix lasted only for a day.

Now I'm, back to the same issue. Everytime I shazam a song, it creates a new "my shazam tracks" playlist with only this one song.
