Re: Shazam add to Spotify List greyed out

I also noticed My Shazam Playlist was not completely synced to Spotify. I exported a CSV of all of Shazam songs on my browser (it is quite involved). I tried to import all my Shazam songs via a that CSV using Soundiiz. It imported 66 out 77 as it could not find the other 11 automatically. The song tittles or artists were quite difficult with symbols, featuring and remixes. I had to manually search those 11 not found and add them myself.

 

TLDR: Spotify will not always find the same title, artist as it is shown in Shazam and will not import the song if it can not ensure it is the correct one.

Same issue here.  Shazam/ Spotify worked harmoniously for years but it seems like there's certain songs I'm unable to get from Spotify to a Shazam playlist, manually or automatically.  I've reached out to Spotify and they suggested contacting Shazam since everything looks good on their end.

 

I've done that, now just waiting to hear back...

This so called answer from Spotify is a typical nonsenses answer. Just paste something from the FAQ maybe even a AI did it and mark it as solved. Shame on you Spotify! On the other hand it might be a problem from Shazam.

This solution worked for me. The funny thing is I'm usually signed in to Shazam, but I had recently re-installed it and forgotten to sign back in. Thank you! 😉

 

Update: no longer working...🤧

I removed my access to Shazam on Spotify and turned off the sync on Shazam. 
then I went on and re-synced and allowed everything. It didn’t work. So I went back on here 2 hours later for another solution.
Then when I looked back on Spotify to mess around with more settings.. for the first time in 3 years.. I have a “My Shazam” playlist!!!!

so had Spotify playing and went on Shazam a few times to look at settings. Maybe they both just needed to be used at the same time I. Order to fully re-sync?? 


anyway.. hope this will work for someone else!!! 🙂

When you say you can "manually add songs to any playlist," are you saying the "add" button is NOT grayed out, as in the pic I attached?

That didn't work for me but after a bunch of screwing around with both apps, I figured it out. I disconnected my Shazam account from Spotify (like you did) then deleted both apps from my iPhone. I went into Spotify and created a playlist, "My Shazam Tracks-Archive" then moved all the tracks from "My Shazam Tracks" to it then deleted them from MST. I re-downloaded Spotify and Shazam apps, opened and logged into Spotify then opened Shazam and logged in and went to "Library > Settings" and selected "Connect" next to Spotify. It auto opened my Spotify app and I authorized the connection then was kicked back to My Shazam settings and now Spotify shows as connected. A new selection now shows up, "Auto-add Shazams to Spotify" - I selected it then Shazam'd a few songs and lo & behold they showed up in my "My Shazam Tracks" folder.

 

What's odd is that some songs that I Shazam have the "Add to" area next to Spotify grayed out while others don't, which is what my original problem was. At least now, all my Shazam'd songs are showing up in Spotify in "My Shazam Tracks." I'm thinking that the problem may have been that I had too many Shazam'd songs in MST playlist in Spotify. When I moved them to MST Archive then deleted them from MST, everything started working again. Hope this helps someone.

I'm glad that worked for you. My problem has never been the My Shazam Playlist. My problem is the "Add to" button being grayed out. I've tried several remedies but none have worked consistently. Spotify and Shazam both need to come correct. This is frustrating and unnecessary. Thanks for the info, though!

I got it to work but it seems random. I get the "Add to" button on some but not on others. I also just noticed that if I don't get the "Add to" button, the song doesn't go into "My Shazam Tracks" playlist. But, when the "Add to" doesn't appear, the Spotify button does. If you select the Spotify button it opens Spotify and takes me to the song and I can add it to a Spotify playlist from there. It's a pain, but better than what I had before. Not sure why some songs can be added from Shazam but others can't.
