[Discover] Exclude selected Playlists from Taste Profile and Discover Suggestions

I play music off Spotify for my bubba to fall asleep to. This is typically classical/meditative relaxing style tracks. Since she sleeps 4 times a day this type of music is getting a LOT of playtime but is not representative of my music taste. I'm finding my Discover Weekly (which I LOVE by the way) is moving more away from my music and more towards the classical/chill out stuff I play for the little one. 


Would be super cool to be able to mark a playlist to exclude it from the Discover algorithm.

Hey folks,


Thanks for coming to the Spotify Idea Exchange and voting to make this happen.


We're happy to announce that Exclude from Taste Profile feature is now available on all platforms. There's more info about the topic in our Newsroom Article. 

If you'd like to give it a try right now, follow the steps below:

  1. Select the playlist of your choice. 
  2. Tap the three dots near the top of the playlist.
  3. Select “Exclude from your Taste Profile.”


Once again, thanks for helping us make Spotify better, by participating here on the Community 🙂 


Ayyyyy  8 years later! I can use my old account again instead of an alt account!


Is this out in all regions as current not for me in the UK


I can’t find the option on updated app on either iPadOS or iOS. 
im in Sweden.


I'm in Spain, I couldn't find the option on either Android app nor the desktop player. I found the option on the web player because I was looking for it otherwise I would have never seen it as I probably use the web player once a year.
After excluding a couple of playlists on the web player and restarting the app on Android I can now see the option there. I still don't see the option on the desktop player.


I can confirm that the option is at first only available in the web player. And after you “Exclude from taste profile” on just one playlist there and then restart your iOS/iPadOS(in my case) app the option will be available for all playlists in app. 

Great news! 
Finally my yearly wrapped and discover weekly won’t be just noise and sounds for sleeping. 🤣

It has appeared on iOS app

Je trouve cela totalement hors-sujet.

Le problème est que le profilage ce fait pour l'ensemble du compte, alors qu'on se fait des playlists selon notre envie/humeur/activité. Donc les propositions musicales doivent correspondre à la playlist écoutée et non pas à l'ensemble de l’expérience du compte. cette nouvelle option ne va donc rien changer au problème, vos suggestions de nouvelle musiques restera souvent hors-contexte dans vos playlists.


How long should it take to 'fix' your blends and automatically created playlists once you've excluded your kids playlists from your taste preferences?


I'm used to listen to some "Sleep" playlists at night. It really helps me fall asleep. But at day I get recommendation playlists full of those lullabies.


Spotify's recommendations are the best on market, but this case ruins their whole purpose.

Please do something with it, dear Spotify Team.


P.S. Yes, I'm using "Remove" button from these automatic playlists. It doesn't help.
