spotify is a social platform, and as such it is simply irresponsible that there is no "block user" feature.

Awesome @Xenia! 🙂 Glad to see these great ideas making it to the app!


Thanks for sharing! Please do take out a minute to check this amazing curation of the best Pakistani mystical sufi music out there. Follow the playlist to keep up with the weekly additions!




please add a “block user” feature for the safety of your users.




I'm agreed with the user Kxtiene That Spotify must add the Block user feature it is the need of time. AutomaticChina

Maybe a yearly reward so it keeps people on Spotify and attracts more people 

As addition to my idea. Maybe having every year give higher value rewards

How about protecting your users privacy and allowing them to block and remove followers. Your “service” has enabled violent predators and stalkers for over 10 years now. There are requests in the forums dating back ten years. 10 YEARS! 

And despite having a restraining order myself, your company has done NOTHING. You collect countless dollars daily. Don’t you think it’s time you actually start listening and caring about your users privacy and safety? 

oh by the way, stalking and harassment are still illegal in all 50 states, in case you forgot. 


You still haven't brought back the liked songs by artist??


Since the last update it's been one of the things that people are asking for, and you are still not listening to your customers. 

So sad, might as well cancel the subscription

Who is planning your sprints?


Out of all these complaints and asks (https://community.spotify.com/t5/Community-Blog/The-New-Desktop-App/bc-p/5200120#M20073) you're "CONSIDERING" only one of them?
