[Browse] Hide song in Premium

Status: Implemented

I use a lot the option to Hide a song, let´s say for example I take an album I love 3 songs , I am fine with 5 and I hate 2 of them. With Spotify Free I can just select an album , then play it forever while I am at home for example doing other stuff so it´s background music, once I hide the 2 songs I hate , they will never play ever again. This is not possible with Spotify Premium the option is not available anymore (it is for discovery weekly but not for albums). The icon to hide a song just disappeared when moving to Premium for most of the songs. 

The alternative option to create a playlist makes no sense as the album is already the playlist.  Also I do not want to stop what I am doing while listening to the music at home and go to the computer to click Next... Hope that makes sense to more people, thanks

Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your votes and feedback to this idea!
We're marking this as implemented, as this feature is now available on mobile.

If we have any info regarding this on desktop in the future, we'll head back here with an update.




Wowjeff01 Really? I still don't have ability to hide songs in the desktop app (both free and premium). Could you take a screenshot of this feature and post here?


Yea, kinda ridiculous. I love Spotify but these reasonable feature requests have been ignored for years. I'm willing to pay if they're willing to deliver.


Well, I search music not on mobile Items. I edit my playlists on my PC for other times. Therfore I like the New Music Friday, but I "hate" some kind of music mostly by some special artists/bands. And I would like to have some "inverted artist radio" where I can filter all visible songs (now and in the future) by ignoring the ones on my blacklist.


Frankly this whole issue is so stupid. Let me black list the songs I don't like. I'm paying a premium for your damn service and Spotify is just ripping the artists off and won't even honor basic requests from customers. To say this is implemented in the Windows client is utter BS.


How can you say this ideas implemented, it is not!


How dare the free people get to have that option but yet the premium paid people do not bring it back bring it back NOW! 


This function still not work on Mac also. I'm a premium user, I just wanna listen songs to relax myself. However, some NOICES annoy me, I think those THINGS should not be called as "SONG", and I need to skip that one by one, until I close the Spotify even I almost lost control.

PLEASE let me able to put those bands into the blacklist, I don't wanna hear their songs anymore, they are not my type.


After being annoyed by this for months, I've just downloaded Tidal. Immediately noticed a block button in the playback screen which then asks you if you want to block the song or the whole artist.
