[Mobile][Your Library] Bring back Blocked Artists Folder to Library

The New Mobile Library (May 2021) with the single list with filters on iOS and Android has removed the ability to see the "blocked/hidden Artists and Songs" folder. This folder/list used to be at the bottom on the old Artist and Playlist category prior to the May 2021 library update. We need this folder back.

 

There is a 100 artist block limit so if this folder is removed like it is in the new mobile Library (May 2021) we now have no way to manage our blocked artists. This is vital when you want to block an artist from playing when it's a known artist that contains content you may feel is distasteful/disgusting/explicit.

 

I normally use this to block artists that are known for having pornographic album art or just music I find overall distasteful from playing or being shown on my Spotify account. Please bring this back so that I can manage my blocked artists properly.

 

Everyone please vote for this and comment why and how you use the block list that was removed to show how it's important to have.

I noticed this recently too. Is there really a limit of 100 artists? I am probably closing in on that number so it would be nice to reevaluate my list of blocked artists.

From previous experience there is a 100 block limit. I hit it a couple of in 2019 when the feature was created and discovered I couldn’t block anymore without unblocking older ones.

 

So it could have changed but I haven’t seen anyone deny the 100 limit yet. Spotify never clarified why there even was a 100 limit to begin with as it’s not on the support page. There even is a Spotify community article complaining about the 100 limit.

 

I find that based on my listening, I need to block the ones Spotify tents to recomend to me that I don’t like. Rather then blocking artist for just any reasons. This has helped me keep the list low. But  still like to manage it so it doesn’t peak out like it did before.

I noticed this yesterday too. I think they just forgot to put this into update. There's quite a few things missing in the update. Hidden artists list is one of them. And also they used to sync the order of my library-playlist with the new song adding screen

I just had to block another artist today but I still have no way of knowing if or will I hit my limit. Please bring this back. I use this block feature to block artist who tent to have inappropriate album covers.

I thought it was me! Surprised this feature is gone. Please bring it back!


There is no other way to display my hidden artists?

The only way to see any block artist is if you so happen to go to the artist page and you will see they are blocked but other then that you can't see any list. This is exactly why we need the feature brought back. Unless they make some sort of clarification stating that there is no block limit. If that is true then I don't care to have the list back. But if there is a 100 artist block limit we need to have the list back.

I've forgotten which artists I've blocked. Sometimes I'd like to know.
