Same here. I went from 4 to 2 a couple of weeks back. The 2 remaining ones ARE the ones I listen to the most, but it was nice to have the variety whenever I felt like it.
I read through Spotify's own recommendations, and for the last two weeks I have only been listening to music that falls outside of my two existing mixes. It's been tedious, but I wanted to see if a new mix was generated, but there's nothing new...
The daily mixes was an awesome feature for a while, and I even used it as a selling point when telling my friends why they should be using Spotify. That' s a point I can't make anymore though.
Daily mix has just failed miserably imho. I listen to a really diverse range of genres, and when I had 4 mixes to choose from that wasn't enough. But now it's gone down to one. It's a pointless useless feature.
How come this is labeled as "solved". Sure doesn't sound solved to me. It happened to me too, weirdly enough I listened mostly to the Arctic Monkeys the previous month, I had a playlist which featured them, however now they aren't present in any of the playlists.
This site is a joke. You have a problem, you want some help or support, but you end up tossed here, in a "Community". Hah! Community!
If I wanted to chit-chat with people about music or Spotify, I have plenty of channels to do it. Here, I wanted to speak TO SPOTIFY. About A PROBLEM. Seeking AN ANSWER. Instead, I got patted on the back by Spotify, who basically acts like "well, talk to each other and see if you can figure out your solution among yourselves, because we sure as **bleep** don't care".
You know what's funnier? I'm not even a Spotify user anymore.
I created this thread a YEAR ago. This could have been resolved and I could have been left satisfied as a user with a simple response or acknowledgement. Instead, here's what happened:
No official answer or solution.
I don't even care about the issue anymore.
The problem persists for other users, who find this thread and then leave seeing it's not asnwered.
I stopped using Spotify almost entirely, migrating to Apple Music.
I still get reminded periodically about this issue, every time someone posts a new reply or Likes my original post.
I get progressively more disappointed with Spotify as a brand every time this happens, because I see that Spotify doesn't care about giving their users an answer or a solution.
So I actually LOVE the Daily Mix functionality. To the point where it's become one of my main gotos as far as what I listen to on Spotify. I had 5 mixes that perfectly outlined my listening habits.
Mix 1: Modern progressive/instrumental/djent metal (Plini, Intervals, Meshuggah, etc)
Mix 2: Classic prog and metal (i.e. Queensryche, Metallica, Slayer, etc)
Mix 3: Ambient/New Age (David Helpling, Matthew Stewart, Steve Roach, etc) Mix 4: Grunge and Nu Metal (Alice In Chains, Seether, Korn, etc) Mix 5: Everything else from Little River Band to Tears for Fears, to Winger
Problem. Mix 2 disappeared. I listen to ALL of these mixes and for whatever reason, this mix just got deleted.
I've been listening to a TON of classic metal and prog to try to get it to come back, but no luck!
Re: [Daily Mix] Why did 4 of my Daily Mixes disappeared?
Yep, my 3 mixes just went down to one.. and this one is a type of genre that I never listen to anymore! The ‘home’ tab of Spotify now is almost totally useless whereas previously it used to be my go to place.
Guess I will try Apple Music, always wanted a light theme, something else that Spotify hasn’t bothered to offer, oh well
Yeah, I switched to Apple Music a while back. At first I missed my sizeable "My Songs" library (not in a million years I would manually add everything again), but just this week an app called SongShift (for transferring playlists between streaming services) went into version 3.0 with a great addition: where previously you could only transfer songs in batches of 50, now you can transfer a whole playlist of any size in one tap.
This was the final nail in Spotify's coffin for me, at least for now. All my songs are now on Apple Music and I've been loving it so far.
