    Hey everyone!

    Was wondering if anyone else was having the issue where Apple music playlists are missing songs. For example, a playlist with 30 songs, shows 5 instead.
    While the iPhone music app still shows all the songs.

    In some playlists, songs never added to the playlist are in the playlist (totally random music).

    Anyone else having this issue? Tried turning off icloud music library and turning on again, but same issue persists.

    I'm experiencing this as well, I was hoping it was because I just turned it on and it was still loading my library? It does seem completely random though.

    I made a thread about the ATV ignoring 'Explicit' songs. Could be related to that.

    Yeah, hopefully it's fixed either through an update or from their back end. Cause the weirdest thing are the songs that weren't even supposed to be in the playlist

    Interesting, I saw your thread. Didn't even notice this behaviour, but it could be related.

    My Apple Music isn't showing the most recently added in the section. It shows from about a month ago and back, but is missing the new content (the content I want to use)

    Interesting. Just checked the recently added section. It's showing the correct recently added stuff. However, those same songs that were recently added into the playlists aren't actually in the playlists. :/ seems like some back end issues that are random for everyone.

    Not sure what's going on here. Just went to Apple Music on the aTV and selected Playlists. It displays my iTunes playlists, as expected. Go to the playlist I normally listen to and it only has about 250 of 5000 tracks in the playlist (most of the music locally stored). If I go to Computer and look at the same playlist it has all 5000 tracks. If I go to iTunes>Apple Music>Playlist, it shows 5000 tracks. Definitely looks like a aTV Music issue.

    Ok, i guess this playlist issue fairly common problem then.

    I'm having the same problem here. I have a playlist on my phone, computer, and iPad that all show 373 songs. Apple TV4 Music app shows only 45 songs. It's driving me crazy.
