Control how much new Music is in the Mix

The Daily Mixes could have a slider control to select how much novelty you want in your mix. If the slider is totally to the left then it plays only tracks you have listened to before. If you put the slider totally to the right then it plays only tracks that you have never listened to before. The positions in the middle would be different combinations of these two extremes.

 

Sometimes I just want to listen to recommendations in a given genre without having to go through all my old tracks that I could easily make into a playlist anyway.

Marked as new idea.

Great suggestion, however, it requires a UI change and most, if not all, requests that require UI changes are marked as "Not right now" and never see the light of day (play counts, for example, would solve this).

 

Another way to implement this change could simply be to input a ratio (or slider!) for "already in Your Library" in Advanced settings. That wouldn't be too hard would it Spotify? I am very, very, very tired of hearing the same songs over and over again.

 I would also like to see this feature, but for the opposite reason! I would prefer the daily mixes to be mixes of familiar songs I like, right now they're full of new songs I'd rather skip.

Hey!

 

Your idea was submitted a while ago and unfortunately didn't receive the amount of kudos needed to stay active in the ideas board (100 Kudos per year). 

In order to keep the Ideas Exchange clearer I'll close this idea for now, but this doesn't mean Spotify rejected this idea.

If you think this is an idea which needs to be implemented, you're welcome to post it in slightly different again :)

 

Have a nice day!

Luke
