My Question or Issue

For the past few months, whenever I have created a new playlist, the playlist title is sometimes missing from the "Your Library" tab of the Spotify app.

 

For example, I create monthly playlists of the songs I listen to, and for the past year, the app has worked pretty much perfectly. However, for the playlist I created for September 2020, the playlist image appears, the green downloaded symbol appears, and my username appears, yet the actual title of the playlist is missing from the screen that displays all of my available playlists. Furthermore, the title of my September playlist also doesn't appear when I click on it to view the songs, with once again, only the playlist image, and song count appearing at the top (Where the title should also be located)

 

Lastly, this hasn't been a one-off either, as it just recently has happened again when I made a playlist earlier today.

 

I have attempted redownloading the app, logging in and out of my account, and restarting my phone, none of which have been able to fix the issue.

 

Is there already a message somewhere I could be directed to that would help me solve this issue? and if not, I would love it if this could be a part of Spotify's radar when they release their next set of bug fixes.

 

Thank you for any help,

Nolan

While trying to update the playlist name on my laptop, it would allow me to edit the name, yet despite what I changed it to, would still remain blank.

 

The option to create a new playlist, and transfer all my songs, however, worked perfectly, with the only difference between the original and the copy being the date showing when the songs were added (for obvious reasons)

 

However, the obvious solution of just editing the playlist name on my phone, I'm embarrassed to say I didn't think of trying until your previous reply (as I had always immediately gone to my laptop to troubleshoot).

Yet, this act of editing the playlist name on my phone ended up solving my issue completely, and is what I should have originally started with.

 

Thank you for all your help

Hey @NolanK,

 

Thanks for writing about this here in the Community.

 

Just to double-check, did you already try a clean reinstall of the app (as opposed to a quick one) together with restarting your iPhone?

 

If there's any temporary error, following those steps should do the trick. It'd be great if you also make sure you're on the latest iOS version (14.2) before testing this again.

 

Let us know how you get on.

 

Cheers!

I have, yes. After completing a clean reinstall, and verifying that my iPhone was updated to the latest IOS, the issue is still occurring.

I did out of curiosity log into a friend's iPhone (XR, also updated to IOS 14.2) and the problem carried over. Where even on their phone, the playlist names weren't showing up when logged into my account and viewing my music.

 

Thank you for any continued help

Thanks for getting back to us @NolanK!

 

What happens if you try updating the name of the playlist? Are you given the option and are you able to save the info you've entered?

 

We'd recommend giving this a try on a different device than your phone to see if that makes a difference.

 

We can also suggest creating a new playlist to see if you're able to name it, and if you are, you can copy all the songs you want to it. You can select all songs them on our desktop version by clicking the Cmnd/Ctrl+A keys.

 

Keep us in the loop here.
