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.

                    Yaaayyy!
          A playlist aficionado--

Imagine how you would do a mixTape with the thumbsUp mixes you want--

* Into an empty playlist, you copy three of some track, four of some artist, and a random background of your favorites.

* You freely "shake in a few" more by Ctrl-V, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-V, . . . .  of whatever strikes your fancy-- or the vision of your love's fancy.

* Then you randomize the whole mixTape playlist to give to your friend who really likes some particular track and some particular artist and likes to dance to some samba, cumbia, or . . . .

* Here is a >> quick randomizer << that generates randomized playlists explicitly-- Very good for mixTape playlists, as you can see.

And you are good to go!  Play with the Spotify Shuffle turned Off, of course-- if you want to play your whole playlist . . . .  (I laugh.)
 
Your Ctrl-V is your thumbsUp-- how many thumbsUp do you shake into your mixTape This time?

With playlists, thumbsDown is really easy-- You automatically thumbsDown, for this particular playlist whatever you don't explicitly put into the playlist, would you agree?

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.

Oh well, it is what it is.

that made me switch to google play also after coming back to spotify for 1 hour after a bad slacker experience.

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.

This list of actions is just hilarious for liking a song.
You really have to like a song to put so much effort in it to save it.

 

Does anyone know why spotify doesn't implement the simple like/favorite feature?
I don't see any disadvantages?

Hi Spotify, please include like and dislike buttons everywhere. Also, if I dislike "Birdy" about a thousand times, STOP SERVING IT UP!
