Spotify's integration with Bumble has been around for a number of years, so potential matches can be seen by the artists you most like listening to music streaming service. It definitely helps to connect people, but unfortunately it does not work as it should, as it is rarely updated to show what you are hearing .
And yes, it's a real problem. as seen by Spotify community threads. According to Spotify, your top artists are "constantly updated and should make new favorites every few days," but we know that's not true. Often it shows artists you've heard weeks or months ago ̵
If the Spotify artists appear outdated in your bumble profile, we have some quick fixes that may just do the job.
Method 1: Disconnecting and Connecting Spotify

To do this, open Bumble, tap the user icon in the upper left corner, and tap the edit icon that appears in your profile picture.
Scroll until the bottom of the page, and you'll see your connected Spotify account with your top artists. Tap the green bar labeled "Spotify Connected" to disconnect your Spotify account from Bumble. The connection succeeds when your top performers disappear and the green bar shows "Connect Your Spotify". To reconnect your Spotify account, tap "Connect your Spotify" – you'll be redirected to your Spotify app and then back to Bumble for authorization.
Your list should now be displayed with the most recent artist list. That alone can not solve your problems. Spotify integration can be unpredictable. If this quick tip does not fix your top performers, you can try unsubscribing and signing out of your Bumble and Spotify accounts.
