My Question or Issue

For at least a month always the same artists and playlists are recommended in my main menu (start menu). So always I see "More like chillax", "More like Tash Sultana", "Concentration", "Rock". I didn't listen to Tash Sultana or chillax for at least a couple of weeks, but it's still recommended and I don't see anything other than that, this seems to be broken. It is the same on every device: MacBook, iPad, Android phone... Same options are shown in start menu.


Does anyone experience something like this? The 6 mixtapes, my mix and release radar gets updated as it should, there are new songs, but this main menu freeze is very annoing!

Hey @Jendk3r! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^


That doesn't sound cool.


The main menu should get updated every day.

Have you tried reinstalling your app? If not here's a step by step tutorial.


Let me know how it goes! ^^


Hey @Nico, thanks for the reply.

As I said this is the same in any Spotify app which I tested, so on iOS, Android, MacOS or Ubuntu. I even tried and here it behaves the same way. It's difficult for me to reinstall 😉


So the first few lines in home menu behave correctly, the first line changes from morning to afternoon, evening and night playlist, then comes next line: playlists made for me and recently played, all are updated correctly. But after it come such sections: "More like chillax", "More like Tash Sultana", "Focus", "Rock" etc. which just stay there without any updates for at least a month.


It doesn't look as it was working correctly, but maybe it's just how it works... Please correct me if I am wrong.



Sorry, my bad then.


It seems that this part of the home menu gets generated by your most listened playlists/genres. I don't think it's broken, but it should get updated more often than one a month or even longer.

I guess they will be updated after you've listened to more music. But I'm not 100% sure how that feature excactly works. ^^




Ok, let's see if it changes after some time, but it's stuck for pretty long already.


I'll come back to this topic if the menu will stay frozen.
