[PS5] No option to listen to liked songs through PS5 "quick action" menu

Wanted to make sure I'm not missing something. On PS5, when you tap the PS button and access Spotify through the music tab at the bottom of the screen, there is no option to listen to liked songs. The only options are Featured on Playstation, Recently played, Spotify recommends, and Your music (which only includes your playlists, not your liked songs).

 

When listening to songs, there is an option to add a song to your liked songs, but again, there is no way to play them without opening the full app. This was an option on PS4, perhaps this was just overlooked?

 

Thanks.

Yep, I have this problem. It aggravates me, and I have to go through the trouble of actually pressing a bunch of stuff to launch the Spotify app just to play my Liked Songs playlist. But even then, the playlist won’t appear in the Music quick action menu.

Hey @heisenbergstew and @lkhbklbljhb,

 

Thanks for searching for the answer you need here.

 

Could you log out back in to your account two times in a row? This prompts a resynch with our servers. If that doesn't fix things it's a good idea to reinstall the Spotify app on your PlayStation devices. That way if damaged files are causing the issue, they'll get replaced.

 

If your liked songs still don't show up, we'd appreciate a screenshot of how your Library gets displayed at your end. You can attach it to your post in the post editor, just make sure to hide any private/ sensitive info.

 

Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted how you get on.

Thanks for the response. Screenshot is attached. I can't get the entire list to show at once, so you'll have to take my word that "Liked Songs" or anything representing it is nowhere to be found.

Edit: I should mention, this was after logging out twice and reinstalling the Spotify PS app.

Hi there @lkhbklbljhb,

 

Thanks for the screenshot and the info.

 

The Quick Action menu is part of the PlayStation 5's interface, so it's not something that you can change in the Spotify app, which will influence that. You'll need to contact Sony to provide feedback of what you'd like to see in the Quick Action Menu.

 

As a workaround we can suggest copying all of your liked songs in a separate playlist. We know it's a bit of a hustle, but it should work. The easies way to copy all songs would be to use the Desktop app and select all songs with the Ctrl+A command, and copy them over.

 

Hope this clears things up. Don't hesitate to give us a shout if you have more questions.

Hey @Ayo213,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

Keep in mind that copying titles from your Liked Songs to a separate playlist the way @Alex suggested can be done only on a desktop device. Note also that if the playlist is quite large, it's possible that Ctrl+A doesn't select all tracks. In that case a workaround would be to select multiple items using Shift + Click and transfer the songs in batches. 

 

If none of these methods work, could you describe with more detail what happens when you try to copy to songs to a new playlist? A screenshot or recording to help us see things as they appear at your end would also be really useful.

 

Hope this helps. Keep us posted on your progress.
