Discover Mode for Radio

I'd like to be able to toggle on/off a 'Music Discovery' setting whilst listening to a Spotify Radio Station.

 

Sometimes I'm happy to hear artists repeated in a Spotify radio station, but sometimes I just want to hear something new.

 

Instead of changing the radio station algorithm to never repeat artists, like some forum members have suggested, how about letting the user opti-in to Discovery Mode.

 

It could be implemented into the GUI with a subtle toggle that appears next to the current radio station title.

Also, sometimes play songs that has a none or low popularity only, so these songs become exposured too.

Same thing here, I switch to Radio to discover new songs, but you pretty fast done with that as the same songs keep repeating (even getting more familiar than the original playlist the Radio was based on....). Please add Discovery option, great idea!

I like the idea behind this but personally I'd rather the radio not play a SONG that you have in your library, rather than not play an ARTIST. For example, I've got lots of songs from many different artists and I'd love to hear their other stuff too - could be a nice way of doing it.

 

If you like an artist lots you're likely to have all of their songs in your playlist anyway, preventing you from hearing them on the radio.

This way you may even discover songs from your favourite artists that you didn't know even existed; something that would be blocked if you stopped artists from playing.

 

Just my two cents. Great idea :D

Whats happening with this great idea? I would really like to listen to radio based on playlists without the songs that the playlists contain.
