My Question or Issue
So, for some reason certain songs show up in my Spotify-generated playlists as not being Liked, even though I have already Liked the songs. For example, here I am listening to Pac Blood by Danny Brown on my Daily Mix 1 (01/16/2020). It appears that I have NOT Liked this song.
Yet, here is my Liked Songs playlist from my Library, with the same song from the same album clearly Liked. Notice they are both from the Deluxe Edition of the same album, and I've had the song Liked since 2013.
This happens all the time with a variety of different songs and it drives me nuts. The main reason I use Spotify over other services is because it used to recommend great new music for me, I assume, based on songs I had Liked or not. Now, all my Spotify-generated playlists and suggestions are filled with music I'm already familiar with...because Spotify thinks I haven't already Liked these songs.
Why are there duplicate files / resources / albums of the same version of an album? Why can't Spotify automatically detect I've already Liked these songs? Please help.
Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
To everyone experiencing this, we recommend that they first check whether or not the issue comes up only in the web player. If that's the case, we have an Ongoing Issue about this here. Make sure to +VOTE and subscribe to it, if you haven't already. We'll inform on any new developments there, as soon as there are any.
If you're experiencing this on the desktop and mobile app versions, ti's possible that these are re-uploads of the same track. As @Xenia mentioned in her post, liking a song on the younger album will also save that song in the older version, but not the other way around. If you'd like this feature changed, you can post an idea about it. You can also support the idea about consolidating duplicates here.
Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted if you have any questions.
