The inability to thumbs up/thumbs down for Spotify playlists on Sonos was a big factor in my switch to Google Music. It seems like a trivial thing, but it makes a big difference when you hear something that you like and want to have some way to easily save it.
I disagree. 4 steps/clicks and a search to do something that should be instantly available throughout the UI with one click? Nah. far too much trouble. The lack of this feature suggests that the Spotify UI designers don't use playlists very much - if they did this would have been fixed a long time ago. I mainly listen to playlists, not radio, and the lack of the thumbs up on playlists is getting close to being a deal-breaker for me. It's only all the effort I've put into building my lists that keeps me paying.
That's a great suggestion, and prompted me to lookup keyboard shortcuts for Spotify (something I hadn't thought of) thanks! However, that's pretty much what I do - I have a 'follow-up' playlist that I add tracks to. It works (sort of) but is still more cumbersome than just a thumbs-up / thumbs-down; [ctrl][c], Select playlist, [ctrl][v] vs Thumbs-up/down.
My main reason for wanting to do this is to influence the suggested music from Spotify. I want to broaden its rather restricted view of the types of music I'm interested in.
Thumbs-up/down should be the easiest way of doing that (I would have thought). I'll have to find some decent curated lists that serve the same purpose.
I completely agree. This is stupid. Why does it only show up in radio or my "daily music mix." How the heck is spotify supposed to figure out if I like a song if I can't tell them that. Something is wrong with the algorythm. Also, it takes into account stuff that you just PLAY. For example, a friend of mine is a huge K-Pop fan, so she suggested a few song for me (I hated them) but for a LONG time, K-Pop artists kept showing up in my reccomendations.
