My Question or Issue

I have some local songs in my "Liked Songs" library that I removed a long time ago. However, I can't unlike them. Clicking a heart doesn't do anything. I tried removing local-files.bnk, but it didn't work either. I also tried to press del key on the local file, and it worked on an older version of the Spotify app, but eventually, they appear again. Does anyone know how to remove those files?

This just started happening to me too.  I used to be able to do it, but now I have about 150 greyed out songs in my Liked Songs that I can't get rid of.  Heart button does nothing, select and delete does nothing, swiping from my phone does nothing.


Very frustrating.

Ah me too I'm having this trouble too.
I tried everything too remove the files/songs.
Spotify has some serious troubles these days 😕

Hope this would end soon
