Same thing here with my premium account; just started happening today (version 0.5.1.74.gbdf7fe51, on IOS). It's far easier to create playlists on my desktop app and sync them to mobile, but now there's a disconnect between the two -- no "loading" messages, nothing. I've tried via wi-fi and via 3G, but to no avail.
I swear, two weeks out of a month, nothing is wrong with Spotify. The second half of the month I come running to the forums trying to figure out what the heck is wrong this time.
I have never had a problem with Spotify. I am just hoping its due to busy servers or something? But I highly doubt it. Will try again later when I get back from work. But still is there anybody that can help? Or I will be cancelling my premium account. Not gonna waste £9.99 a month!
Guys mine seems to be working now. How about yours? Maybe I was right and Spotify was just slow or something last night. But I would love to know if I was wrong and there was a reason why it was not syncing last night. Hope yours is all working fine now or you manage to sort it out!
I am a new user and also having this problem. All my playlists have an orange circle with a minus sign on them and say "only local files synched." I don't know what I'm supposed to do. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Spotify on my computer and on my phone. Like I said I'm a new user so maybe I am just missing a step or something -- any direction would be appreciated.
