Currently, all Free users and Premium iOS users have the ability to block any artist just by going to their pages and tapping "Don't play this artist".
This is not possible for Premium users who use Android devices, and I've seen some complaints about it in the Community.
So it would be great to make it available to all users regardless of the platform.

Hi everyone.Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this idea in the Community.We’re excited to say that this is now also possible for Premium users on Android.

Marked as new idea.
Please check this related Idea:
would be a good feature!
Is this really Android specific?
I cannnot block the artists on the MacOS app either (I am premium).
This is an absolute must and I honestly don't understand how Spotify can ignore this. There is a ton of articles from the beginning of 2019 that show how to do this. I guess I didn't realize they are all from iOS.
Wakey wakey, Spotify.
I 100% support this idea.
Also doesn't work on the desktop app, it's fairly annoying to have to skip a shitty band over and over again just because spotify thinks it is similar to the music I like (which it is not).
I wonder why this needs a vote. If IOS users have a feature, surely Android should be treated equally!
Amazing news, thanks
I don't see any changes on my Android!
Hopefully, it will also include Genres.
Can you kindly get your techs to start working on the Windows desktop version as well, please? I fail to understand why the decision was made to only block artists on IOS. Surely Windows users represent the largest audience. Or is that why - they didn't want to "upset" the artists.
