Spotify randomly unliking songs??

I have noticed before that some songs which I was sure I had liked (little green heart) before have somehow got unliked by spotify. This only happened a few times before so I brushed it off as a minor bug, however today, as I was going through a lot of playlists and artists I noticed VAST amounts of songs which I 100%, without a doubt had liked before, were now unliked (blank heart).

 

I'm not sure what caused this or if this is a bug, but it would be nice to fix this as I had to manually go back and try to find all the songs that may have gotten unliked by spotify.

See I thought I was accidently unliking songs with my hand when using my phone. However for the last few days I've had my phone switched off to get on with some other work, I've only been using Spotify on my laptop.

I noticed it's unliked some songs I only recently liked in the last few days - I'm definitely not unliking them by accident on my laptop!

 

It's real, you're not imagining it.

Iv had exactly the same thing , even with songs that i listen to regularly. I have around 700 liked songs so it take me a bit of time to realise that they have gotten unliked until i play a rewind playlist or an older playlist. Its so annoying that I have to keep checking through all these songs to make sure that spotify hasn't unliked them. Why the **bleep** is this happening?

Maybe you have the age old issue where you like one version of the song but there’s another version (basically identical) in a playlist. To be sure that a song has been removed from your liked songs try searching them in your Liked Songs playlist.

I've been having this issue for a few months now. I have 4,000+ liked songs (I've been using Spotify for at least 6 years lol) so I don't always notice. But its been unliking songs by my favorite band at least once a week. I know for a fact that there aren't copies of the songs on Spotify or saved on my laptop or phone, so that isn't my issue.

I have been noticing the same thing for the past few months.
And it's definitely not old age setting in or FFS (fat finger syndrome).
Is this an unknown problem for spotify?

I too am having this issue.  It is definitely happening outside of user error or from different song versions causing confusion.  I'm not positive but question whether it has to do with the time since it was liked.  If I sort my list by date it was added, it does not go back as far as when I began to like them.

Hey everyone,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us. This sounds odd and we'll do our best to help you out.

 

It's a good idea to start off by restarting the device. Then you can log out and log back in again.

 

If that doesn't do the trick, you can give these steps a go and run a clean reinstall. That way you can make sure the cache is not causing this issue.

 

You can also try with another account. That way we can see if it's an account-related issue.

 

Let us know how it goes. If you have questions, you know where to find us.

Same issue, a concerning amount of my favorite songs of all time are being unliked. Noticed it when going through my annual top songs playlists. Recently signed up for Duo. Not sure if this is why. But it's upsetting
