Okay so I want to remove unwanted podcasts that appear in my home page. I don't understand why I get inappropriate podcasts in my home page. I don't want anyone to see this and get the wrong idea. Please show us how to remove podcasts or get a feature ASAP please.
Thanks for reaching out to the Community.
Currently the app doesn't support users customization of the Home screen. It seems however that other users have also requested this to be changed and they've created this idea. You can add your support there by up-voting the idea. We'll inform on any developments there, as soon as there are any. So make sure to subscribe, if you haven't already.
Hope this info is useful. Let us know if there's anything else we can help with.
You put Rotten Mango Podcast on my Home Page - Get rid of it NOW!
Hello, I need some suggestions to delete some inappropriate content on my home page. I started to watch some unwanted podcast and playlist. I need to delete those, Thanks!!
Hi there @souldev,
Thank you for your reply in this thread.
As mentioned above - it's not possible to customize your start screen at the moment. However, there's currently an idea - [All Platforms] Customize Start Screen. You can leave a +VOTE and Subscribe to the idea for any updates regarding this.
Rest assured that we're always trying to improve as we always strive to improve our features.
We hope for your understanding and that you continue using Spotify and find it gets better in the future.
Let us know if we can help you with anything else.
The status is: Not Right Now
This is literally the feature that's preventing me from becoming a Premium user. I don't wanna get recommendations based on some dumb podcasts I heard an episode of 5 years ago.
And when is this going to be implemented? Then plan has been up for three years. more **** is being added and its ******* annoying. I just want a clean home screen on a service I am paying for.
There have been multiple threads like this and all I keep seeing is moderators asking to upvote an idea. It makes customers feel powerless while we get more unwanted stuff shoved down our throats. No one wants Spotify to become more like a social media. I do not want to log in with my socials. I don't want 10, probably paid for, podcast advertisements on my homepage and I don't care what other people are listening to. I just want to play some songs if I feel like it and not be bothered.
With kinds, yet annoyed regards,
These threads have popped up numerous times with enough votes and your company doesn't give a damn about doing anything about it.
The worst part, it really insults me when I have to see certain personalities I absolutely despise just because you want me to try a podcast which I never will.
GIVE ME A DAMN OPTION IT HAS BEEN OVER A YEAR!
Ok buddies... lose all hope... They just dismissed the idea like 18 months ago (scroll down on the idea proposed above). It looks as someone mentioned they care s**t about premium users and they keep throwing undesired proposals into our home screen because... someone pays Spotify for it... so as long as it's a business, they will not give a dimme on our opinion.
hey man you can just go to the artist that makes the podcast, and on the three dots next to their name, click and select "don't play this" and it should go away
This whole upvoting the feature is a bit absurd. You all are aware that people can share media to other's so they can listen/watch. It is obvious that user's should inherently have the ability to remove content that is not of their own listening/viewing preferences. Not all media from any given user is actually their own, the option to delete specific content off of a user's homepage is necessary to accurately curate and display content that is genuinely their own. How have you not figured this out? You understand this can be offensive?
Hey there you, Yeah, you! 😁 Welcome - we're glad you joined the Spotify Community! While you here, let's have a fun game…
