My desktop app playlists are not syncing to ipod touch

My desktop app playlists are not syncing to ipod touch

The playlists I create on the desktop app are not displayed on the ipod. It also doesn't work the other way arround.

Both devices are connected to the same WiFi network. I even tried pluging the cord and restarting both (desktop and ipod)

The app version on the ipod is the most recent available according to iOS version (which is also the latest available)




Desktop: MacBook pro

OS: Sierra

Device: Ipod Touch 2nd Gen

Device OS: 4.2.1

Desktop app version:

You simply need to go to settings>playback>offline.
In both the phone and desktop switch to "offline mode" for a good 5 to 10 minutes, then switch back to "online" and it should sync them up!
you may need to close each app, but no reinstalling with this solution ๐Ÿ‘


Let me know if this works for you!



I turned on the offline mode for about half an hour and the issue was not solved.

Keep in mind that the ipod version form spotify is an older one since it is the the only one supported by the ipod 2nd gen. Maybe this information can assist you in suggesting me another solution.




That's weird!
I'm all out of ideas, sadly. I would recommend submitting a support ticket to Spotify, which you can do here.
