Liked Songs playlist out of sync across devices

Liked Songs playlist out of sync across devices

My Question or Issue

This weekend I spent a bunch of timing liking individual songs from my playlists and saved albums so they'd all appear in the Liked Songs playlist.


I started by doing it via the mobile app but it was too slow, so I switched to doing it on my Chromebook. I went from about 150 songs to around 400 via my phone, and then from 400 to over 1000 via the Chromebook (spotify web version).


The "Liked Songs" playlist on my mobile device didn't update with all the songs I added on the Chromebook until I cleared all my cached and stored data.


Now using my MacBook Pro with the Spotify desktop app, NONE of those Liked Songs are reflected -- my playlist is still around 150 songs. I've tried logging out and back in, I've even uninstalled and reinstalled Spotify.


All devices logged in as the same user.

Hey @handrew86,


Thnaks for reaching out about this in the Community!


We'd recommend you try logging out Everywhere and back in, to force sync your account.


Your liked songs should be synced automatically and in realtime between devices running the latest app version. 


Corrupted cache or app data may cause such delays. So on any device that the Liked songs are not updating, we'd recommend running a clean reinstall.


Keep us posted on how you get on.

The liked songs on my new phone wasnt syncing up with all my other devices (like I have 2,952 liked songs but my new phone was only showing 35 !!!!), and this solved my problem!!!

This is what I did:
1. I logged out of all my devices (PC, Work Laptop, Old Phone, AND Spotify Web)

2. I cleared the data & cache in my new phone's spotify app. Uninstalled the spotify app, then restarted my new phone.

3. I did a hard refresh (ctrl+shift+r) of Spotify Web just in case, then logged into my Spotify Web account and liked another song just to update the liked songs count

4. Then I installed the Spotify app again in my new phone, logged in, and THANKFULLY the liked songs count started going up and it synced properly with the spotify web's liked songs count


Hope this helps to whoevers looking for a solution in 2024 or later !!!
