Is Spotify not showing your liked songs on the “Liked Songs” page?

Many users are reporting this issue after the latest Spotify update.

Here’s a tweet by @UncleXWillyT, “Why is Spotify not showing me liked songs but only the artists I follow?”.

And a tweet by @gorgon_girl, “Is anybody else having problems with their liked songs on the @Spotify app not showing up or having zero access to them?”.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to fix Spotify not showing liked songs and why your liked songs are not syncing.

Why is Spotify not showing liked songs?

Spotify is not showing your liked songs because of a glitch on the app.

In some cases, Spotify’s servers might be down and you need to wait for it to be back up.

You can check if Spotify is down on DownDetector.com/status/spotify.

Once you’re there, check if there’s a spike in the graph.

If there is, it means that Spotify is probably down.

You can also search for “Spotify Down” on Twitter and check the top and latest tweets.

To do so, go to the App Store or Google Play Store, search for “Spotify”, and tap on “Update”.

If you don’t see an existing update, you need to wait for one.

2. Download an older version of Spotify

The second method is to download an older version of Spotify.

This method only works for Android devices.

Unfortunately, if you’re using an iPhone, you cannot do this.

On your Android device, open a browser and go to https://spotify.en.uptodown.com/android/versions.

Click on an older version of Spotify, download it, log in to your account, and your liked songs should reappear.

3. Log out and log back in

The final method is to log out and log back in to your Spotify account.

According to @SpotifyCares, Spotify’s official Twitter account for Spotify support, logging out and logging back in is recommended.

If you’re using Spotify on a computer, click on your profile picture > Log out.

If you’re using the Spotify mobile app, navigate to Home > Settings > Log out.

After you’ve logged out of Spotify, log back in and check if your liked songs are showing.
