Daylist always shows the wrong title

Daylist always shows the wrong title

Title is self explanatory but in Home view the Daylist title is completely different from what it actually is when I select it.

Hey there @jesibelle

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

Could you let us know if this has always happened or if it started happening after a specific event such as an update? We'd also like to know if this happens across devices or only on a particular one.

 

On another note, could you ask a friend or a relative to log in to their account on your device to check if they can replicate this behavior? 

 

We'll be on the lookout for your reply.

Mine gets out of sync like this as well.  Like right now, when first opening the Spotify web player (Chrome 124, Windows 10), it just says it's title "daylist" with no description on the Home page, and after clicking on it and going to the playlist, it still says just "daylist" on the playlist page as well... UNTIL you refresh the page... then it updates it with the current description "hypnotic sound design wednesday morning" in this case.  But THAT playlist can't actually be played, as the main Play button at the top starts playing songs that are NOT displayed in the daylist it's showing you and instead playing songs from a daylist that you can't see.  And if you try to click play on individual tracks in the displayed daylist, it fails, with the response from the player command call getting a 403 Forbidden.  Refreshing the page doesn't fix it, a forced hard refresh or forcing disable cache with dev console open in Chrome doesn't fix it, clearing site data doesn't fix it.

 

So then I open Spotify on my phone (Android 12, Pixel 3a XL) and IT shows the daylist title on the home screen as the same as what the web player said it was "hypnotic sound design wednesday morning" but when you click on it to show the actual playlist... on THAT screen it says it's actually titled "scary animalistic morning" and the track my desktop was playing IS on THAT list. 

 

Hitting play on that daylist from my phone then plays the tracks from the list it's displaying as expected, and if you connect the web player as a connected device... it shows the out of sync daylist on desktop with a ssound spectrum "playing" indicator... but still it's showing the wrong playlist and there's no playing track in the list.  Refreshing desktop at this point still doesn't allow it to see the "scary animalistic morning" playlist the phone is playing and that the web plkayer plays without showing, and web player will continue to fail to be able to play the tracks it does show you, and only playing the hidden daylist.

 

Not sure how it gets so badly out of sync, as I wasn't using my phone when first starting the dyalist from my browser... the web player seems to just make up some other list that doesn't work and refuses to update, and no idea what actually triggers it, but it doesn't happen all the time for me either... just every so often.  And I don't think it resolves until the time the next daylist can be generated.

I noticed it happening about two months ago, I couldn’t tell you the exact update. It does happen to me across devices. Both my desktop and my phone show different titles for the Daylist depending on where you’re viewing it. 

I do not have a friend or relative who uses Spotify to test that out. 

Visually my daylist has updated to this morning, listing what it often does, piano music and things to read to. But when I hit play it is playing the daylist from last evening, heavy metal. I hit fast forward one song as often if the list was left in the middle of a song it will finish it before starting the new list. However no matter how much I fast forward it stays in last night's heavy metal rotation. What gives? This is my favorite feature. It is occurring on my phone and every other connected device in the house which I listed below.

My Question or Issue

 

Welcome to the thread @Medlir and @Gavino10478, and thanks for the details @jesibelle!

 

Could you test and let us know if you're able to view the playlist with the correct title in the Web Player and if it's playing the correct songs? If it's possible, try in a different browser and let us know if Spotify behaves any different there. 

 

It'd be great if you could send us the exact Spotify versions you're using on the devices you're experiencing these issues on, as well as include the devices' OS versions if you haven't already.

 

To help us further investigate and understand what exactly is happening, it would also be very helpful if you could send us some screenshots or even video recordings of how things look life from your end. You can attach them via the Insert Image/Video options in the post editor and if the video is too big - we'd suggest that you upload it to Google Drive and share the link with us (make sure the video has the permissions for anyone to see it).

 

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon 🙂
