How do I find artists I'm following?

So I find artists I like and I follow them, but how do I then find a list of all the artists I'm following to select one to listen to? I'm obviously being a bit dense. I can only see playlists on the left, but not people I'm following

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey folks,

 

We've moved this thread to the relevant Help Board so it's easier to find for users with a similar question.

 

If you're looking for all the Artists you're FOLLOWING, there are currently two ways of finding them:

 

  1. In Your Library
  2. On your profile page:
  • On the desktop app, click your name in the top-right corner.

  • On mobile and tablet, tap Home icon_home.png, then Settings icon_settings.png, then View Profile.

For more info on how Your Library is organized we suggest checking out this Support article.

 

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

 

Happy listening 🎶

Are the devs really that incompetent? What the heck is the point of the follow function then? I was considering subscribing, but then I found out that I can't click on a tab and it shows my followed artists. This complaint was brought up over a year ago and you still haven't fixed it. Absolutely pathetic.

As I understand it, to follow an artist only means that you are notified if he releases something new on Spotify, and that's it. I also hoped for something more than that, e.g. influencing my recommendations in Discover, but it doesn't.

I've asked for more information about both limits, will let you know what they say.

Ok when I go to my profile and click on who I'm following it will not let me see all of them. It only shows the first 20-30 or so when I'm following over 400 artists and would like to see them all because I can't exactly remeber all 470+ of them at hand. It would be much easier if there could be a full list of them when I click on "Following" so I can have access to everyone I'm following and can just look through them and find artists when I want to.

Annoyingly the Profile > Following list will only show you 100 results which Spotify have confirmed is not a bug (not sure about the reasoning behind that though).

Your Music > Artists *should* show you all of the artists you follow but it appears to be stuck at 300 at the minute too which is an open bug.

It's astonishingly hard to find just about everything on this app.

So, how's the solution for iPad, where can I see the artists I'm following?

@Roger2807 - You still can't as far as I know unfortunately.

Afraid not. Can find no pattern in which ones it shows other than it's almost always the same ones and it should be all of them.

I wonder if it only shows the artists that you have recently played

Except it actually doesn't, it only shows about a quarter of them in my case.

...and now the artists who aren't in the shortened list have totally forgotten I followed them at all, thus actually undoing several hours' work. Not good at all, seriously.

Still waiting to hear any updates about this issue I'm afraid. Hang in there.

Really, I do not see why this can not just be under "Follow". In there now I find lots except the things I am currently following.

 

MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL.

Can someone please file this as a bug in the bug forum? That's what it is. By any design that could possibly exist, all the artists you're following would be under 'artist' in your library, not just a random selection of them, apparently claiming to be all of them but absolutely not being all of them.

 

I can't find any bug thread relating to this and it's certainly a bug (and not a small one). Cheers

@Synchronated - I can confirm this is an open issue raised via the Rock Star channel so it has been reported. There is no bugs topic for it due to the small number of reports we have seen on the community. If the number of reports increases, I will off course create a bugs topic for it. 🙂

There is annoyingly two separate issues being discussed here, one with Your Music and one with the following pages, both of which do appear to be broken but are most likely unrelated.

This is bothering me as well, and I'm probably going to quit my subsription as a result.  I'd like spotify to take over for my music collection, but if i can't see any of the artists I've discovered at any given time without having to search through a million things, it's not worth my money every month,

This is bizarre. Shouldn't a "follow" link that you can click to quickly pull up to all the artists you follow be one of the first things implemented in the software design of both the desktop and mobile versions?

 

I'm new to spotify and am currently on a 3 month promo offer. Overall, the service has been great even though the user interface isn't the most intuitive, but this simple (but HUGE) follow feature that is missing is enough for me to cancel and search out what the competitors have to offer.

 

On my iphone version, I find myself often having to type in the artist's name in the search engine. Considering I use the app mostly while driving, I'm often stuck listening to whatever I already selected at the start of the drive so I don't distract myself from the road.

 

Isn't this a 30 second fix for the programming team that can be released in the next updated version of the software? I hope Spotify makes the addition. Thanks!

Artists you follow should now also appear in the "Artists" tab of Your Music collection (although there seem to be a few issues with it at the minute).

Hi there.

I am following 315 artists. I took the time, went through, spent my evening, found them all and followed them all on the highly sound presumption that I could then pick from them what I wanted to listen to. Unfortunately this is not the case at all.

The Windows app and Android app each only show 100 or so artists, always the same ones. 200+ just aren't shown, ever.

If I go directly to their page they are 'followed' but simply viewing a list of them all, i.e. super basic functionality, is currently impossible and reading the boards it looks like it's been like this for literally years.

First world problems and all but this actually stops Spotify being useful for me, and it is an enormous bug that should be a very easy fix (i.e. it's surely easier for it to just display them all than to try to pick and choose for some reason and ultimately fail!). Please fix it.

Thanks.
