Discover Weekly has quickly become one of Spotify’s most formidable weapons in its fight against Apple Music.
The feature, which debuted in July, delivers a personalized playlist to its users each week on Monday morning. The playlist runs about two hours long and is assembled by Spotify’s algorithms, in sharp contrast to Apple which relies more on celebrity “human” curation.
But this morning, something odd happened – or rather, didn’t. Discover Weekly playlists all around the world failed to update, and the internet went crazy.
Discover Weekly has quickly become a fan favorite, and as BuzzFeed points out, the reactions on Twitter show just how upset people were that it didn’t arrive in their metaphorical mailbox to cure their Monday gloom.
Here are some of the best reactions:
Where were YOU during the infamous Discover Weekly riots of Sept 2015, etc

It’s 10:41am on Monday and my @Spotify Discover Weekly playlist hasn’t updated yet and I’m doing my best not to have an existential crisis.

Spotify, my true love, I don’t ask for much. So if you could update my discover weekly, we can get back to our tumultuous affair.

That day you refreshed your @Spotify Discover Weekly playlist over and over, hoping to see it update at long last…

A Spotify spokesperson told Business Insider that users should not worry. The Spotify team is fine-tuning the creation mechanism and the feature should be back to normal by tomorrow at the latest.
