Discovering New Music useless - no DISLIKE button!!??

For me, the whole point of listening to a Spotify "New Music..." playlist created by Spotify is that you can hear stuff you did not specifically choose, and can see if you like something new.

 

Spotify have removed the ability to do this because there is no DISLIKE button which should immediately skip to the next track while telling Spotify that you do not like this artist/type of music.

 

The New Music Friday UK list has about 90% pop rubbish I do not like... so how do I let spotify know that I would like other "NEW MUSIC" curated for me?

 

We need the dislike button in EVERY part of Spotify, especially Spotify's playlists as that is where you will be hearing music that you did not choose specifically.

Its really ridiculous this is for my playlists as well. Whats the point of having a radio if its gonna play a song multiple times in it that I hate?

It's a stress this missing button ! I have test to remove the song from the playlist, but it come back... So, i use the button "inapropriate content" as long as i hear thé song i dislike, because for me a song i dislike is inapropriate !

 

I Want the come back of the dislike button !

The button seems removed indeed. Now I understand why Spotify is getting less poplair every month.

Removing features and not listening to users (the blocking artists/songs feature had many votes and was ignored).

 

So, going to investigate whether there is an alternative with the possibility to block genres like x-mas, individual songs and artists. I've had it with Spotify for now.

Hmmm. I still have this "ban" button in my desktop client. Spotify version 1.1.12.449.g4109e645

On "RADIO" ? If so, please send a video screen grab so I can see how you get to that place. I have the same desktop version you have, no ban sign with any of the things in the RADIO section. No ban sign the BROWSE section either, for example, go to Browse> Summer > Summer Indie and play that. There is no ban sign on these... and these are the places where one is most likely to want to choose whether you like a track or not, because it is here you are listening to new tracks that are not already ones you have chosen for your own playlist! In Browse there is no ban sign in any of the New Releases! This is absurd, if it is a new release, SURELY you should be able to say whether you like it here or not? Again under HOME. Go to "Something for everyone..." this is also a place where you will be hearing a playlist made by Spotify, not stuff you have chosen, so again, it is a place where you should be able to say you do not like something or do like it. But no ban sign there either. 
if you do have ban signs in any of these places, please send me video screen grabs. I am pretty sure you do not.

Oh yes, you are right. I checked out the Radio and Browse tabs. There is no ban button, unfortunately it just disappeared. I still can see it in playlists made for me personally, which I follow, like Discover Weekly or Release Radar, I can reach them right from Home screen. BUT!  there is a playlist also made for me called Summer Rewind in this row where no dislike button!
