Part 1. How to Find Tidal Recently Played

Tidal stores your recently played playlists and song history in two separate places, which can be confusing. When you play songs from your playlists, the playlists will be displayed under the "Recently Played" section. The songs you played will be listed in the "Play Queue" section. If you want a detailed collection of your listening history, including dates and times, you can sync your Tidal account with for in-depth stats analysis.

Place 1. At Homepage

The Tidal Recently Played section is on the Tidal home page. However, its exact position on the home page may differ from everyone's preference since all sections on the homepage are placed based on the categories you use the most now. If you frequently play music from the Recently Played section, it may be displayed at the top of your Tidal homepage. You can see it once you open Tidal. If you hardly ever click the section, you may need to scroll down the screen to find it.

Part 3. How to Fix Tidal Recently Played Not Updating

As an online streaming platform, Tidal sometimes causes connection or syncing issues. These days, many users complain that Tidal Recently Played not updating after playing new albums or auto-playing recommended songs. I've also encountered such an issue before. Typically, I can tackle the problem of not updating with the five methods below.

Way 1. Restart Your Phone

It takes time to upload your playing history, so you can wait some minutes to see whether it is updated. If you have waited long, you can relaunch your phone to refresh the system and software. Sometimes, your system may be stuck when uploading and syncing the recently played songs to the Tidal server.

Way 2. Uninstall and Reinstall the Tidal App

You can also uninstall and reinstall the Tidal app on your devices to clear Tidal cache and refresh Internet connections between your device and the Tidal systems.

However, I've found that this method can only work for a while. And I have to keep deleting and reinstalling the Tidal app on my phone, which is very annoying.

Way 3. Use Tidal App on Your Computer

After several trials, I found that the Tidal Desktop app has a more stable connection with the Tidal server. The listening history is updated quickly and can be synced with my Tidal on my phone. But the biggest problem is that the computer is not convenient to play on the road. So, I usually use this method when I'm at home.

Way 4. Change A Browser

Except for Tidal on mobile devices and desktop devices, I also tried the Tidal web player. However, it also fails to update my playing history sometimes. Don't worry; you can switch to another browser to try it.

Way 5. Contact Tidal Support and Wait for Updating

If all solutions are not working, you'd better give the Tidal Support team feedback. They will ask for details about your problem in updating Tidal's recently played songs. You can only contact and wait for the next app upgrade to fix related bugs.
