[Discover] Exclude Audiobooks / Podcasts from Discover Playlists

Status: Case Closed

Hi,

 

Listening to AudioBooks make the algorithm think, that you like the „musician“ a lot (especially if the audiobook has hundreds of chapters).

 

So the algorithm will fill your Mixtapes with Audiobook chapters.

 

This is annoying.

 

Please remove AudioBooks from Mixtapes !!!

 

Lets get this a 100 votes so that this will be reviewed by Spotify 🙂

In my point of view it is disturbing if Audiobooks are within my "Your Mix of the Week" or in one of my "Mixtapes".

 

Therefore it would be very nice if me as a user can define some cateogries which will be ignored from the algorithm

No need to discuss this. This behaviour is utterly absurd and must stop. That it hasn´t been stopped in alpha testing allready makes me sad.

Need every one to follow this link and vote. Same problem. I belive Spotify needs over 1000 votes.  Almost there...
