Operating System: Windows & MacOs (at least)
It is an common and old issue, that when an user likes a song, and this song gets re-uploaded, the old version remains liked in our library and the new version is simply not liked. (it does not replace the older version)
Following this behaviour, it would be expected from those two versions to be independent.
When two different versions of the same song are liked, i.e. an old version of a song and the re-uploaded version, when the old version of the song is unliked by the user, the liked re-uploaded version is also automatically unliked.
(A demonstration of the issue is given in the attached video)
Thank you for reading this issue, and I hope it will get fixed.
Welcome to the Community and thank you for reaching out.
The issue might be coming from the fact that you were able to add the same song to a playlist at one point without getting the duplicate notification. However, there's no pattern as to how it happens and because of this, it always gets fixed by itself.
This is why we suggest you always make sure to keep your app updated so you don't miss any fixes or new features.
Don't hesitate to reach out again if you have questions.
"The issue might be coming from the fact that you were able to add the same song to a playlist at one point without getting the duplicate notification."
This issue does not concern adding the same songs multiple times to a single playlist.
It concerns having multiple instances of the same song in the "Liked Songs" system.
(I do not need an answer, I am only signalling an annoying bug. But if Spotify's application's code is a spaghetti mess and it is unfixable, never mind then 🐙)
Thanks for your rapid response.
We do appreciate your well-structured info and the effort to signal a potential issue with us. We’ll be sure to pass your info and let the right folks know, as soon as we're able to fully replicate this situation. For that we'd need a little bit more input from your side if possible 🙂
Could you also mention the exact version numbers of the Spotify client app where this behavior is being observed. Also, if you could send us the precise URIs (the share links) of the songs seen in the examples, so we can take a closer look and better reproduce the situation.
Keep us posted, we'll be on the lookout for your reply.
Thanks for the info you've provided.
We've passed this on to the right teams handling content at Spotify 🙂
We don't have official info when exactly this will be taken care of.
Hey there you, Yeah, you! 😁 Welcome - we're glad you joined the Spotify Community! While you here, let's have a fun game…
