PLAYLIST not available on ios

Operating System

My Question or Issue

 I created some personal playlist on my mac. They have many songs (more than 50 in each). When I look at them on the iphone, it says that I have the correct number of songs on the first screen. But then  on the 2nd screnn on the iphone, only 2 to 5 titles are available per playlist are available. All others are "grey" or don't even show up. I tried to restart the app, to disconnect and reconnect. On the mac, every songs are "white" and can play. 

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the @Community, @alf10! The songs may have been gray due to turning on the explicit filter. If this is not the issue, please reply.

Happy Holidays!

Thanks for your help... though I checked and this is not the solution. It is also the case with child songs!

Spotify is really pissing me off. This is been posted dozens of times and nobody has an answer. Seems like a pretty basic function and it has been defunct for a long time. I bet a lot of people have moved over to Apple music for this issue alone.
