Hey there folks, 

 

To clarify, playlists such as Discover Weekly and Release Radar are based not only on your listening habits, but also on those of other users with a similar taste and even of your friends on Spotify.

 

Take a look at this support site article to read more about our Playlists and how they work.

 

Hope you'll find this info useful. Let us know if you have any more questions!

Guys that answer about how Discover works doesnt help a tiny bit. German songs are still there. Could you pls add some preferences setting that would filter songs in other than main languages? Or to ban specific languages? Would work well with existing Discover behavior. Ideally it would fill up filtered space with extra recommendations.

Dear Ivan,

 

thanks for the reply. Also the loyalty to online music streaming factors is influenced by various factors. One of them is the ability to resolve user struggles. 

 

It's Monday and 3 out of top 6 recommendation are German. It makes me consider other providers to see if they are able to deal with languages. And I would recommend that for all other users that have issue with unwanted languages in their Discover Weekly list.

 

Only other option is currently to manually browse Discover weekly and remove all German songs. Until they return back the next week. Sounds like a war against windmills. 

 

The Idea about "Ideas" is nice. Just have a look - somebody else has wanted to block certain genres and got rejected - it has happened just recently: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/Music-Ability-to-block-certain-Genres/idi-p/1415644#.

 

What's supposed to give me some hope that similar request would help? 

I really believe you can do better at Spotify.
