Get Recommendations by seed_genres not working (empty list)

Today, I noticed that the recommendations endpoint returns an empty list when only seed_genres  is provided. This is new, it was working yesterday.

What did change and how can I make it work again?

Same. The console also returns null when only seed_genres  is provided.

I found a same problem on the community which was reported 2 years ago. Waiting for Spotify to solve this.

Yea getting the same thing: https://api.spotify.com/v1/recommendations?seed_artists&seed_genres=classical&seed_tracks Returns:

{
    "tracks": [],
    "seeds": [
        {
            "initialPoolSize": 0,
            "afterFilteringSize": 0,
            "afterRelinkingSize": 0,
            "id": "classical",
            "type": "GENRE",
            "href": null
        }
    ]
}

Experiencing the same issue: 

https://api.spotify.com/v1/recommendations?seed_artists&seed_genres=classical&seed_tracks

 

{
    "tracks": [],
    "seeds": [
        {
            "initialPoolSize": 0,
            "afterFilteringSize": 0,
            "afterRelinkingSize": 0,
            "id": "classical",
            "type": "GENRE",
            "href": null
        }
    ]
}

Same here as well. Getting recommendations by genre has been working well for me for well over six months, then suddenly stopped working last week. Is there any update from Spotify yet?

Ran into a problem today here as well and realized that the value for genre is case sensitive. "Rock" did not work, but "rock" did.
