[Discover Weekly] Remove certain Songs

It would be nice if there was a way to remove a song from the Discover Weekly playlist. Overall, Spotify picks some pretty good songs for the playlist. However, there are always a couple songs I don't like. It would be nice if I could delete the song from the playlist just like I can for any other playlists I put together.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for sharing your feedback here in the Community.

 

We're pleased to confirm that it's now possible to like or dislike tracks in your Discover Weekly playlist.Screen Shot 2018-08-29 at 15.30.29.png

 

 

If you dislike a track, it will also be removed from your Discover Weekly playlist.

Thanks again for coming to the Idea Exchange!
We appreciate all of the comments.

What if I want to remove a song because I have already added it to my own playlist? I like the song, but I don't need to hear it again. I don't want to dislike it and I don't want to hype it. Premium users ought to be able to let Spotify know directly how they are using Discover Weekly - so that the lists for them can be improved. For instance, I do not treat Discover Weekly as a playlist (just) to listen to. For me it is research for building my own playlists to listen to. I don't want to see a heavy concentration of artists that Spotify already knows I like. A smattering of their music is good -- but what I want to hear is new artists in the vein of the ones I like - or maybe on some tangent that intersects with their sound. I'm becoming increasingly bored with the Discover Weekly lists I'm getting lately. I wish they would stop sending me so much music they're confident I like and tune up their algorithm(s) to find similar sounds to send me.  [ Please! Thanks! ]

Was this suggestion only added to the application? Because I don't see that button anywhere on the web player.

I've noticed that I hear the same songs over and over for months in the Discover Weekly. Aren't they supposed to get new ones weekly?

Yeah, that seems to be the case. On the stand-alone app, there are icons for "like" or "dislike" to the left of the "..." mouseover menu. But they don't seem to exist in the web player view.

I think most folks here are complaining about seeing the same songs repeated occasionally. If you're not seeing a different list each week, you should be ... but I'm not sure what the troubleshooting is for that. I have noticed that sometimes I will get a new list, but if I had paused a song from the previous week's list sometimes the new list wouldn't play and the old one continued to. That seems like a bug. Hopefully, someone who knows more than I do will offer you a specific path to solving your problem.

This is apparently now implemented, but doesn't seem to be available in the web player. Why?

Thank you...had someone jack my Spotify and when I got it back my Discover Weekly was all German Hardcore Rap...so NOT my style...

Hi, I am pretty new using this, and since I coudn't start (or don't know how to) start a thread on the topic, I'll give it a try here. I have noticed other users have commented on similar issues. The thing is, I realized you can actually remove some songs from your playlists, but not others, now this sounds a bit odd, because it's happened a few times already, I did successfully remove a song then, but can't remove this other particular song. Perhaps a more experienced user can shed some light into this because it's weird, and a pain. Well thanks for reading and hope someone can help!

Hi Spotify, it seems the dislike button isn’t showing up on the web app or IOS. I want to be able to remove songs from my discover weekly to help whittle down the list to what I want to add to my liked songs. Am I missing something?
