My Question or Issue

When I today was accessing the radio of one of my playlists consisting of exclusively Mongolian artists, I quickly noticed that pretty much every song in there that was suggested by Spotify is completely irrelevant to the topic of the playlist, being only Scandinavian or German artists only barely similar in style but in essence, completely different from anything in the playlist.

 

The radio algorithm is not the topic but the fact that I have no way of telling Spotify that I don't want these songs in that radio. There used to be a "Don't Like" button on radio songs but it seems to be gone.


I noticed there was a "Hide this song" button in the song list now, but unfortunately, clicking it does exactly nothing. Still 95% irrelevant music in there, making the radio station literally worthless to me.

Are there any working possibilities to be able to hide unwanted songs from a radio station?

i also have the same problem its so annoying,
i didnt even use the radio now for a lot of time,
only listen to the daily mixes, but they also suck **bleep**, and have no dislike button either on pc.
and iam mostly on Pc...

Should i actually switch back to youtube?
the reason i even bought spotify premium was so i can enjoy it, because it was good!
it had a nice algorithem and disliking songs actually worked...

I'm going to second this entire post. It seems to be a continued issue and runs along with my issue.

If I paying for my spotify, why the heck cannot I not hide songs on the PC but I can hide them on my phone? Ironically more often than not, that song suggestion has nothing to do with me or a song I want to hear. This is becoming quite tiring to have both my PC and phone running the app just to remove songs I have ZERO desire to hear. Especially when I've hidden the song before (when I was allowed to) and it still appears or plays. This is on a song radio station, discovery list and other areas where I'm frequently listening.

 

I'm getting close to the point of cancelling my account out of frustration and going to Youtube or elsewhere.

Hi folks! 

 

Thanks for getting in touch about this here in the Community. Sorry for the delayed reply, we just came across this thread.

 

@ajdallas, you should be able to hide (in Discover weekly/ Release Radar/ Radio) songs and Block artists through the mobile app. Note that hiding a song on your phone doesn't sync with the desktop app, so you might see a song that you've disliked on your phone appears in another playlist on the desktop app. If you'd like this to change in the future we recommend giving these steps a go and submit your idea so that other users can also support it. The more votes an idea gets, the more likely it is to be implemented.

 

Hope you find this info useful.

 

Cheers!
