[Playlists] How do I stop Spotify from adding tracks to my playlist

It’s really annoying cause I don’t want your **bleep**ing suggestions. If I did then there’d be no point of creating a playlist with music that I LIKE. So stop. Seriously. Also stop adding more songs after I try to delete the ones you add. Please let me know how to shut this function off.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for providing your feedback on this feature.

 

We just wanted to clarify that the following is expected behaviour on the free version on mobile:

  • If you have less than 15 songs in your Favorite Songs, we'll add more songs.
  • You will see a message telling you that the extra songs were added by us, but they can be replaced by adding more songs.

If any of you are experiencing something different to this, let us know and we'll look into it further. 

 

If you would like to suggest a change or improvement to the app, we invite you to create an idea in the Community by going here (there is a similar existing idea here, but I don't think it's the same as the one you're after). You can get other users to vote for it, and the more votes it gets, the more likely it is to be implemented in future.

 

Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions regarding this feature - we'll be happy to answer them.

 

Take care :)

Hey, Saizon! 

If you've made a personal playlist that wasn't originally made by Spotify, songs will not be automatically added to your playlists. If it is a playlist that's curated by Spotify, you may want to just move all the songs into your own playlist to prevent them from adding more. If you're talking about the "Autoplay similar songs" feature, that can be turned off by clicking the down arrow next to your profile name --> Settings-->Autoplay. Hope this helps!

No, they add songs. There’s two subheadings “you added” and “we added” in which they add new songs to my playlist which I can’t delete, because another one just pops up.

Those playlists must either be 

a) Collaborative playlists

b) Spotify Curated 

Can you post a screenshot of the referenced playlist?

Here's a screenshot showing it's my playlist. It's not Spotify curated or collaborative. https://imgur.com/WrupMaa

I see. That feature is included with the free version of Spotify. It can be disabled by upgrading to premium here. But don't worry, the "we added" tracks are not actually a part of your playlist, only suggestions. The actual playlist will only contain the tracks you added. Hope this helps!

thats such bullsh*t. some of us cant pay for premium and so for that you guys take away our skips, offline listening, and put on TONS of ads. i think we should be able to at least listen to our own playlists without you guys “adding songs”.

This should NOT be a feature AT ALL! I get you play ads on free accounts, because that's how you get paid, but 'suggesting' songs in playlists is NOT OK. There has been a number of threads on this, this is the only one I've seen that has had a decent amount of interaction

 

You should really rethink this feature - All the new changes, among other things (there's a list) are detering me from getting a Spotify subscription (I've also seen the updates you add to premium accounts-really annoying how many changes you make) and this pushing of songs on a free accounts is actually more annoying than useful. A lot of people just don't bother putting the effort of complaining, but I'm about done with Spotify. 

 

Going to export my playlists and get the MP3s and do it old school, so you don't keep f****** up my mood on already bad days. 

 

Like the previous commenter said, we should be able to at least listen to our own playlists without you guys “adding songs”.
