[All Platforms][Discover] Exclude genre from recommendations like Discover Weekly

Status: Case Closed

I want to exclude classical music completely from all of my recommended playlists such as Discover Weekly and radio stations. The reason for this is that Spotify will not include the entire piece - it includes 1 movement only because each movement is usually stored as 1 track. If it could include the entire work and know to always play the whole work rather than individual movements out of order, mixed up with other songs, that'd be awesome, but Spotify has made it pretty clear that they will NEVER implement this (not sure why, but fine), so I'd like to at least be able to exclude classical from all of the recommendation algorithms and manage it myself.

Totally sucks that Spotify does not care about this at all. Guess the only chance is if people spam this idea more?

Spotify is continuously adding Rap in Release Radar and Discover Weekly playlists.

 

I have removed dozens of artists and songs but they still keep showing up. I am completely fed up with the platform trying to force me to listen to something I really dislike.

 

Please give users an option to opt-out of whole genre because your algorithm doesn't seem to understand genres and works against listeners.

NoMoreWhaleSounds

I have been having this problem for months - MONTHS. At first I tried listening to ambient in private mode, then offline mode, and now I've resorted to never using Spotify for my ambient vibes. I even removed Bose Soundtouch presets to my favorite playlists in a 'hail mary' attempt to not have my Monday morning's filled with Whale Sounds and meditation zen titles. I still try every week, hoping that the Whale Sounds have gone, but every week I am still disappointed in Spotify's Discover Weekly.
