My Question or Issue

 Today I logged into my Spotify account, and went to go to the artists tab to look through my saved artists. I can no longer see all of my saved artists. I am logged into the correct account, and I can see all my saved songs in the albums and songs tab though when I go to the artists tab, it only shows my followed artists and not my saved artists. Even when I click on them, it takes me to their artist page. This happens on the desktop app, web player and on android. All across my account. I've tried clearing the cache, reinstalling, logging out and in, everything. I can't see any of my artists anymore. Is there any fix?

Hi @AliceAnarchy , thanks for writing!

 

This is an issue that's currently under investigation, but the steps bellow have helped other users who were going through this:

 

  • Log out > Restart desktop > Log back in
  • Reinstall app from Windows Store 

After that, remove all lines from their hosts file that are blocking Spotify: 

 

  1. Open Notepad as an administrator (right-click - Open as Administrator)
  2. Go to File - Open and navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
  3. Choose "All Files" instead of "Text Documents" next to the File Name box. You'll see a handful of files. Pick hosts and click on Open
  4. When the file is open, you will see a block of text with # in front of each line and might see entries like 0.0.0.0 website.com127.0.0.1 website2.com
  5. Check for any entries with Spotify in the address. Examples may look like: 0.0.0.0 weblb-wg.gslb.spotify.com0.0.0.0
  6. If you do find any lines with Spotify, please remove them.
  7. Save your changes and restart Spotify

Let me know if it helps you!

I noticed this happening in the iOS app recently. My wife confirmed that it's happening on hers as well.

 

Is it still being looked into? I attached a photo of my app. What it looks like is it's taken everything I saved and it's switched it to recommended artists.

Apparently it's a feature?! That's what I was told from customer service. I
haven't been able to fix it for months. It's dreadful. I've asked them to
revert it but no luck.

Hey there @Codie1031,

 

Glad to have you on the Community! We're happy to shed some light on the situation.

 

Liking a song no longer automatically adds that artist to your followed Artists tab. For full info on how Your Library is now structured, we suggest you check out this Spotify Answer.

 

Hope this helps. Give us a shout if you have any other questions.

 

Happy listening 🎧
