[Discover] Please add a "Not Interested" Button

As the title suggests, it would be useful if Spotify had a "not interested" button like YouTube does for videos. I have been using Spotify for many years and still receive a lot of recommendations for playlists and podcasts that I am simply not interested in. One such example is "Learn Korean and Korean Culture" by jerry. I have no interest in learning Korean whatsoever, so it would be useful for me to remove recommendations such as these.

Hi everyone,


Thank you for all the support and feedback you've given to this idea!


We have some exciting news to share with you: in the mobile app, it's now possible to remove content recommendations from the subfeeds (Music and Podcasts & Shows) of your Home screen by tapping Not interested in the context menu of the cards:

The content you mark as "not interested" will instantly be removed from your subfeed and won't show up again. Any other songs/albums/episodes by that artist/podcast show will also be filtered out from future recommendations.


After tapping Not interested, an Undo button will pop up at the bottom of the screen for a short time so you can revert the changes.


Keep in mind that this feature is gradually rolling out, so if you don't see the button in the context menu of the cards, we'd recommend making sure that you're running the latest version of Spotify. If you're having trouble with, or have any other questions about this feature, feel free to reach out in the relevant Help board here.


Thanks again for helping us make Spotify better. We're always striving to provide the best possible user experience and your feedback is always appreciated.

This doesn't work for podcasts.

This doesn't work at all for podcasts. Just give us a ban podcast feature for **bleep**s sake.

Still cannot find it for podcasts in my app (Italiy) and I desperately need it!

The "not interested" button needs to be extended beyond the submenus, to the upfront menu labelled "Spotify Podcasts and Shows".

 

Why? Because the algorithmic/automatic recommendations are wrong.

 

Because I don't want to see Joe Rogan's leering logo, I don't want to see Dax Shepard's fake-screamy-face, and there are worse ones out there, because worse ones, and lamer ones, have come up. Uninterested, uninterested, forever uninterested.

 

Please. "Uninterested". Up front.

 

Thank you.

Needs to work for all podcasts and all spotify mixes and recommendations. Please add the option to turn off and remove smart shuffle. Please when you add features always add a on / off button in settings if its a good function people i will keep it on and if not it doesn't ruin  peoples experiences and they can just remove it. Currently debating moving to another streaming service very poor settings and forced features plus no payments to all the small artist i listen to with less that 1000 streams a month: https://artists.spotify.com/en/blog/modernizing-our-royalty-system stop giving my money to greedy pop artists and record labels and support real music.

I'd like to stop seeing podcasts in the home screen (desktop app).

 

I only listened to 1 posdcast episode once and I don't plan to listen to any more podcasts (I don't like the format, I prefer to read) and wasting 3 lines out of five in podcasts recommendations is like Spotify is trying too hard to sell me something I won't buy.

 

Honestly, this is a feature request that's been going on fo years, it's ridiculous that Spotify still hasn't implemented this globally, this should be a user preference set in the profile and applied to web, desktop and mobile apps, IMHO.

Why is this marked as implemented?
I don't use the mobile app, only the desktop app (I'm on Linux) and occasionally the TV app (LG webOS).
