Note: this is NOT in reference to eliminating songs duplicated on different/discrete playlists
Spotify Premium has duplicated some of my playlists. In some cases, several times i.e.
Occurs on both mobile and laptop. To my knowledge, my iPhone 4s is not a sentient being, nor is my 3 y/o Lenovo. I never got my Mogwai wet or fed him after midnight. So, I'm at a loss as to why these unholy things have been spawned.
Seemingly related to this issue in that I've noticed that the "weird" iTunes nested playlists are consistently among duplicates.
The only other patterns I notice in duplicate playlists:
6 years on and this is still an issue, for me at least.
The answer given is not helpful to me. I have around 200 playlists, nested into various folders for ease of finding. What I'm seeing in the desktop version is that EVERY playlist appears twice - first in its expected place in the folder, but then there is a list of the same playlists in alphabetical order at the bottom of the folder list, outside of the folders. So when I have added songs to the playlist in one place, it is NOT syncing with the duplicate folder in another. When I go to play Spotify on my Amazon Echo for example, I'm not getting the playlists I thought I had added.
Deleting duplicate playlists is not an option, because for each playlist (more than 200 of them remember), I would need to go and compare the one in the folder with the one outside, see which one has the complete set of songs, delete the other one, and ensure the one I want to keep is in the folder. I'm not doing this more than 200 times! I haven't done it once actually, just in case deleting "one" copy of the playlist happens to delete them both.
Anyone know what to do about this?
I’m going to go ahead and escalate this for you.
Hey there @gkey2112,
Thanks for posting about this here in the Community!
Just to confirm, are you able to see any duplicated playlists when accessing your account from a different device or the Web Player?
If everything looks alright when using your account on a different device, it'd be a good idea performing a thorough reinstallation on your original device following the steps in this Spotify Answer.
If the issue persists on a different device, it'd be helpful if you could share a screenshot of how it looks for you. Just make sure that there's no private/sensitive info displayed when posting in the Community 🙂
We'll be keeping an eye out for your reply!
Thanks for keeping us posted.
Out of interest, when did you first notice these duplicates? Do you know if any particular action triggered this?
Once we know that, we can investigate the root cause of this issue and see if there's anything we can do on our end.
Looking forward to hearing back from you!
Hey there you, Yeah, you! 😁 Welcome - we're glad you joined the Spotify Community! While you here, let's have a fun game…
