Why do I have five Spotify Daily Mixes instead of six?

For as long as I can remember, I've had six Spotify daily mixes. Now I have five. What happened, and is it possible to get the sixth one back?

I'm pretty sure this is driven by how much variety in music you listen to. If they can't come up with 6 different-enough mixes, they will give you fewer. The number I have varies from time to time. If your taste is sufficiently broad, it will probably come back at some point.

Have you looked in your Recently Played list? Sometimes my Daily Mixes migrate there.

Not sure how you're accessing spotify, but I'm using a desktop app on my Mac, and it only shows 5 until I click 'see all' at the far right of the screen. Is that an option for you?

Response by poster: Desktop on PC in a browser, and on iPhone in Spotify app, only shows five in both cases. I appreciate everyone's help trying to troubleshoot this very small problem.

brb, listening to a wide variety of music...

The number of daily mixes I get varies too. Today, I have six. I would expect you to see six again eventually.

Here on the iPad app I have six Daily Mixes showing on the Home page, fwiw.

Spotify likes to A/B test changes, so maybe your part of the B group?

I found this other tip on the internet recently. If you search for "picked just for you" you'll find a bunch of activity oriented/mood oriented algorithmic playlists. Pretty neat if you're looking for something specific yet new.

A few months ago Spotify started hiding my Daily Mix 4 from me on my Android phone app. It was super strange - it would show me 1 through 3 and then 5 and 6. Daily Mix 4 was nowhere to be found. I can't remember whether I was able to see it on the desktop app (which provides a "see all" option for sections like "Made for sigmagalator" which doesn't show up on my phone app), or whether it was gone from there as well.

After a few weeks of that, eventually all 6 Daily Mix playlists appeared again on my phone. I assumed that someone had just broken some interface and eventually the bug was discovered and fixed. So I wish I had a better solution for you, but your sixth playlist will probably come back!
