Hey guys,

We did encounter some issues with sharing what you listened to over on Facebook. Hopefully this should be fixed in the next release of the Spotify client - this should be rolling out soon.

 

UPDATE - We have a nice new preview version you can update to right away right here - Complete with other nice new features such as Crossfade and Gapless playback.

ok, can't wait for the new client then 🙂

 

checked everything in spotify and FB.. All the necessary boxes are checked..

 

however.. it still feels like a FB issue to me.. Could be wrong though 🙂 I'm only just a Test engineer and not a developer 😉

I'm having the same problem! I removed Spotify from my timeline, but now that I want to put it back, I can't seem to figure it out. I've checked every box, updated Spotify, removed the app, replaced the app - you name it! Any hints??

You might want to check that this option in the preferences is checked:

 

Show What I Listen to

 

If it is checked, make sure that your Facebook privacy settings allow Spotify to post on your timeline.

 

Facebook Privacy Settings

 

The Spotify app will need to be able to publish app activity to your timeline, so the "Add app activity to my timeline" setting must be there.

To get Spotify back on your timeline try these steps:
-Go to your profile
-Click on 'Activity Log next to 'Update Info'.
-Click 'All', then scroll down to 'Spotify'.
-Click the cog/gear & then select what you would like Spotify to share with Facebook.

I have same problem. Spotify doesn't show up with my activity on Facebook. I also tried the preview version of Spotify and doesn't seem to fix anything related to this issue. 

 

P.S.: the crossfade track is more than welcomed. Thanks guys!

Still doesn't work. I've tried all combinations with music and spotify on, one off, one on. My problem is that Spotify activity, on Facebook, shows only if I subscribe to a playlist or modify my playlist.

The new client is installed. I have deleted the app, relaunched Spotify and Fb and still nothing. While, back ago, my timeline posted my subscribe to playlists activity, now it's gone. On the activity log for spotify, there's just this message: ''Start using Spotify to publish information to your timeline.''. Any ideas/help?

Irinel, could you get a screenshot of that message for us?

Also, I have to mention (I don't know if it is important) that I currently stay in Romania. Therefore, I have a romanian ip.

Ah, that might be the issue I'm afraid. The Facebook connection doesn't seem to work from non-Spotify countries right now, possibly as a result of the geolocation used by Facebook for apps.

I looked into this in some details over in our old Community. If you want to check the thread out here's a link: https://getsatisfaction.com/spotify/topics/connected_to_facebook_but_its_not_working

But I don't get it because some small activity was shared like I said in previous comments (when I updated my playlist and also when I subscribed to some playlists). Now I regret that I have deleted my activity ( a screen shot would have been nice). 

 

Anyway, if there's is no solution at the moment I do hope that soon this bugging issue will be fixed also. Anyway, no matter what, I will go unlimited. It's the first audio streaming service that satisfies me. Keep up the good work, guys.

wh yiam i nolonger to share my music can u please fix this problem

Will not update on facebook anymore

On facebook Spotify has stopped updating my timeline, how can this be ?

 

In Spotify the option "Activity sharing - Show what I listen to on facebook" is uncheked. I'm not sure what happens if I check this. I just want to update my timeline, not show each song I listen to onto the list on the right side on facebook.

Re: Will not update on facebook anymore

I'm a little confused by which part of the Facebook integration isn't working for you.

 

Do you want songs that are played to automatically be put on your timeline? Or do you not want this, but still want to be able to share tracks to Facebook by using the "share to" function?
