I’m not seeing this hack working on my phone app. I use my phone 99% of the time. Please help me if I’m simply not seeing the ability to create stations with like/dislike ability. 

 

I generally like the songs Spotify suggests, but I liked the ability to narrowly tailor playlists instead of Spotify suggesting the same songs no matter what artist or song I choose to make a playlist from. 

 

This is is one of the most annoying changes they’ve made. It’s pretentious for them to think they know what I like more than I do!

There's a far more easier "hack", than putting a song in a playlist.

Just search for that song and start it from search. After that song is played, it will start playing song radio. The old style. 

You'll find that song radio afterwards in "recently played"

Nice to know! So the ability is still there, but they’ve eliminated a more direct approach to accessing the feature. Odd. 

 

Hopefully, they’ll fix this so I can play stations off albums, playlists, and artists without playing all their songs first.

Hello,

Although song and artists radios look like playlists you cannot edit them. 

If you are looking for more songs like those you can make your own playlist then Spotify will create a playlist similar to it. 

Hope this answers your question.

 

Please accept as a solution

Note: I am not a Spotify employee.



That is in no way a solution.

When a platform hides (kills) a high demand feature like this, and replaces it with a misleading (naming playlists Radio??) and terrible experience (no like / customization) - you can bet there's self interest ($$$) behind it. Smells a commercial model where artists/labels pay more to have their songs promoted through Spotify-curated "Radio Stations" (Playlists). If they totally kill the actual radio feature, they'll see a mass exodous - likely already happening with this terrible user experience. /me sad-panda.

The radio is a playlist you cannot edit, however as you progress along the radio and listen to songs, for every song you listen to it is exchanged for a new song.  It's shown as a playlist so that you know the queue of what's going to play.

Thank you for sharing this!

Tried it on different radio-seeds, artists, songs, playlists, it all works if you drag them to the radio menu. 

It is weird that all the info in the support pages relates to the old behaviour. They used to be quite quick in changing faulty info...
