[Playlists] Able to remove 'we added' from play lists

Status: Case Closed

What if we had the option to remove the 'we added' section. If this was a option we could only listen to the songs we had chosen. Now this should be a option that you could turn on and off.

Completely remove recommended songs from a playlist as if the person makes a playlist, they are making it for songs they like. If the app automatically adds songs to that playlist, it completely ruins the whole point of the playlist and just turns it into more like a radio station, which is not what it is meant to be.

Just a little suggestion, don't choose songs for the user, only add songs the user has specifically chosen for their playlist/s. You can show them some recomendations but don't just straight add them to a playlist.

Hello @Agent37!

Have a nice day 🙂

I have been a free Spotify user for three years now, but for the past month or so I have had nothing but problems with the app due to the broken Autoplay feature. I have always had Autoplay turned off because I do not want to hear suggested tracks, but now Spotify only plays suggested tracks. You can only listen to two or three songs in your playlist  and then Spotify will start playing nonstop suggestions regardless of whether Autoplay is on or off. This issue affects every playlist I have made, no matter how many songs are in it, and including my liked songs. 

This problem is a complete dealbreaker for me. I have tried everything I can think of to fix it (logging out and logging back in, clean reinstall, etc.) but nothing works. A quick google search and I found countless unanswered complaints about this problem from both free and premium users, but for whatever reason everyone seems to be having this problem yet no one from Spotify is willing to fix it. The endless random suggested tracks are annoying enough when you have no skips and have to deal with ads, so I can’t imagine how infuriating it must be for premium users to be wasting money on a music app that won’t let them listen to their music. 

 

Please, please, please just fix this problem, or better yet, just get rid of the Autoplay feature altogether. No one wants to listen to random songs they don’t like and don’t want to hear, so I don’t understand why this is still an issue after so many people have asked to fix it. It makes me want to stop using Spotify entirely and deters me from wanting to upgrade to premium because I refuse to spend money on something I know is broken. This is a simple fix and I know it is affecting a lot of other users, so please just fix the problem and give us back the Spotify we all used to love.

I agree totally with the removal of the Adding Songs to my playlist by Spotify. It totally ruins my playlist. I in know way like any of the songs Spotify constantly adds. Not even close to the kind of music I like. I have to constantly remove that unwanted stuff from my playlist. Looks like Spotify is aware if this but has just blown off the complaints about this annoying design defect.

Your program shouldn't play suggested songs other then christian. If my Playlist is all christian.  Your program shouldn't really play any other songs besides the Playlist to begin with. Unless you think that if you annoy me enough I'll pay. Well. If Spotify annoys me enough I'll use youtube. If I play soft songs cause I want to fall asleep. Spotify should never come on with a really load dumb advertisement that sounds like horrible heavy metal advertisement.  That sounds like somebody ran into a wall. And says bla bla Spotify.

Honestly we shouldn't be forced to listen to music that WE didn't add on our playlist no matter how many songs the playlist in question has because WE chose to add that number of song, you can keep at the bottom the recommended songs but stop forcing us to listen to song we aren't interested in hearing. This literally make people choose a better app for music instead of getting the premium option that isn't perfect either in this situation. This is just reducing the number of people using Spotify and might eventually lead to a downfall.
