Spotify feed not updating
The reason for this thread is that the new activity feed doesn't even update at all.
Downgrading the activity feed is one issue, but breaking it altogether is another one entirely that is a whole lot worse.
The only time I can see when my friends have last played music is when I log off and log on again, and even then have no idea if that is the truth or not.
I think I've seen the feed updating live for one friend once in the past couple of weeks, and that only lasted about 20 minutes.
I am increasingly concerned that this new version of Spotify will never be fixed, and am looking forward to checking out Apple's Beats service when it comes out later this year.
TLDR; The new activity feed almost never updates what your friends have been playing.
