My Spotify playlists don’t show up

Note: This article has been updated with lastest available information on August 18th, 2021 at 07:56 pm

I want to use my Spotify with my Spark amp but when in the menu of the Spark app, i don’t see all my playlists. Only a few of them to choose from.

You need to check the rights of you’re playlists in your Spotify settings. If your playlists are set to private, they won’t show up in the Spark app. You need to set them to public.

If your playlists are public and still don’t show up in the Spark app, this is because you need to also add your playlists to your Spotify profile.

On mobile, you can do so 

  1. Tap icon options iphone (iOS) / icon options android (Android) at the top of the playlist.
  2. Select Add to profile or Remove from profile.

On Desktop or web player:

  1. Right-click the playlist.
  2. Select Add to profile or Remove from profile.

    Nope does not work, your integration with Spotify is very poor

    Same problem. Have checked my playlists are public. All of my Jimi Hendrix playlist appears on the App, but only a quarter of my general playlist appears and albums do not appear at all.
    Naturally, one of the songs on the general playlist that I wish to learn via the App connection with Spotify is one that does not appear on the App!

    My playlist is public but when I share it with my friends they cannot open the link and it gives this error: The owner of this playlist has made it private or removed it from Spotify. But none this actiones are happend.

    For what it’s worth, the issue seems to be it can only enumerate so many of your playlists. I took a playlist I wanted that wasn’t showing and using the windows desktop client, dragged it all the way to the top. Now it shows up in the app.

    Would be nice if they could fix that enumeration limit.

    Also, if the playlist contains local songs (sync’d locally to the device) it would be nice if it ‘used’ those local songs rather than ‘finding’ something on Spotify or YT.

    Reason being: I like to jam along to some Del Monte (Gin Blossom) songs, but ‘only’ the versions from the ‘Dusted’ vinyl, as the tempos and energy were much better than subsequent releases.

    I keep getting the error: “Fetch Playlist Fail: -1” and yes the test playlist I made is public. I just don’t get anything.

    1. Hey Axel,

      Try to re-install the app but first, unlink your Spotify account. You’ll need to go to your Spotify account via web browser, then remove the permission for “Energy bluetooth speaker” to access your current account (in the Manage App section). After that, make sure to back up your tones or upload them to the tonecloud, then reinstall the Spark app (or clear app cache should work if you’re on Android). Log in to your account again and tapping connecting to Spotify should bring up the Spotify connection prompt again. You’ll need to be connected to your Spotify account to link it.
      If this doesn’t work, I suggest to reach out to Positive Grid
