Not all Spotify playlists appearing in search?

Casual Listener

Using the web API, I can only see 1438 official Spotify playlists (all the way up to "foodora dinner playlist").

 

I'm getting the playlists recursively using

https://api.spotify.com/v1/users/spotify/playlists?limit=50&offset=i

for i increasing in increments of 50 until the API request returns nothing.

 

There are items which don't appear in the list, but which are Spotify-owned playlists. For example the playlist with ID 37i9dQZF1DX0QKpU3cGsyb does not appear in the returned JSON from the iterative process above, but is authored by Spotify and its details can be accessed via the API directly.

 

Why are not all of the playlists showing up?

Yes, I've noticed this as well.  Another playlist that doesn't appear as part of the API results is 37i9dQZF1DWYa1w6FMMTnG

 

You can also observe this behavior by going to the Spotify user page and scrolling down until all playlists have loaded -- the playlist noted above, along with the one mpd posted, will be missing from that page.

 

It seems there are a number of official Spotify playlists that are not actually associated with the Spotify User Id
