What are unplayable songs on Spotify?
Unplayable songs on Spotify are songs that cannot be played due to a technical issue or copyright restriction. You can hide these unplayable songs so they don't show up in any of your playlists or albums, although you will still see them listed in your library. If you come across an unplayable song, hide it using the steps outlined above and it won't appear anymore.
Do hidden songs still count toward my daily play limit?
No, hidden songs do not count towards your daily play limit on Spotify. When you hide a song, Spotify will no longer play it in any of your playlists or albums, so it doesn't count towards your daily usage limit.
