block artist

Hello,

I have seen this question around and spotify bounces it back. However, I pay money each month and get really annoyed when some typical worthless artists as coinye west or any pop up. This annoys me very much i.e. when I'm driving in my car. I really would like to have the possibility to block artist who really annoy me. Why won't you enable this? It seems there is massive support for this option. Please, supply and demand, this is how the market works.

 

Thanks.

Hey there @jjhjespers

thanks for posting !

 

The feature of "blocking" an artist exsists already and it's called "Don't play this artist".

 

However, this feature is implemented for iOS users only at the moment so if you're an Apple user you'll be able to visit an artist page, click on the 3 dots and find the feature there.

 

If you're an Android user, please make sure to add your +VOTE to this live idea.

 

Hope this helps 🙂

Thanks a lot, I am a windows 10 and android user. Would be really appreciated (I also hear that from friends) if this option gets in.

I'm also looking for this feature on Windows 10.
At the moment I'm doing that through my Android, but it would be easier if also available on W10.

Not sure when they added it to Android, but it is there now.  You do a search for the artist, and click on the 3 dots near their name. Check the option "don't play this". I had to go through and get rid of quite a few that I just cannot stand.  Made my auto generated playlists so much much better.

 

I could not find it in the Windows website or the desktop program, but the Android app does not have this feature.

Found it on Android and also blocked Rush because they are just so, so terrible.

It's July 2020.

 

This option still doesn't appear in the Windows 10 app, nor on the web player.

 

It's a bit nuts that I have to use my Android phone to block music playing on my PC. Which is where 99% of my Spotify usage is done.

ứng dụng mới nhất trên iOS,

không hiển thị phần header khi xem thông tin nghệ sĩ.

 

Không block được nghệ sĩ

 

Ứng dụng spotify là ứng dụng tệ-hại nhất về trải nghiệm người dùng.

Hey @tuanagileviet,

Thanks posting here in the Community! We'll gladly help you out.

 

We hope you don't mind us answering in English, as this is the official language of the Community.

 

The option to block an artist from playing is now available on all mobile devices. To do this, click on the three dots in the upper right corner on the artist page and select Don't play this. The change will affect your account across all devices and you can turn it off at any time via the same menu. If the option is missing, it's possible that some of the apps files have become corrupted. It this case it's a good idea to perform a clean reinstall, so that all app files get built up anew.

As to the header on the artist page, keep in mind that it's displayed only on the desktop app and in the web player. If you'd like this feature introduced also for mobile devices, you can post an idea about it. The Idea Exchange is a great way for us to keep track of what changes our users are interested in and how popular a certain idea is. This page explains how exactly your feedback reaches Spotify.

Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted if you have any questions.

When will be this option available on the web player or desktop app for the ones who don't listen to Spotify on our phones?

Hi @Mihail!
I chose "Don't play this game".
But mobile apps, desktop apps (Windows / macOS) always play the blocked artist.

Why?

Not solved at all, when it is only available for a single OS 😞
Why should we pay for musik we dislike??

Progress has been made.  They added the block song/block artist to Android a while back.  It is now on Windows as well.  It seems to come and go on the menu, but is mostly there...
