[All Platforms] Customize Start Screen

This is not a new idea, but I haven't found any practical reply to it, so I think it needs to be repeated. I completely agree with Rennestein (screen capture below), we need to stop seeing irrelevant suggestions because it is annoying. Why can't it be possible to decide what we first see when we open Spotify on any device? (playlists, recently played, artists we're following, etc), and enjoy better our Spotify experience?
Please Spotify, let us have the home screen as we'd like. :)) Thank you!

Hey folks,

We appreciate you sharing your feedback on the Community and showing your support to this idea.
 
We're setting this idea to 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.
 
Update from the 23rd of Feb 2023:
 
A new feature was recently introduced in the mobile app which you may find interesting as it allows users to remove content recommendations from the subfeeds (Music and Podcasts & Shows) of their Home screen, thus expanding upon the current customization options and offering a improved, more personalized experience. You can find more info about it in the Status update here.
 
Thanks.

THAT is a reason to cancel Premium!

**bleep** Yes it is. The old one was so much better. Cant understand why the changed it or at least made it that you could customize it your self.

Fortunately, everything still looks the same for me.
Also, I now have only one series in which podcasts are forced upon me. But many other things that I find uninteresting, but also can not delete.

Dac1984: I did it and nothing changes on Spotify. I even imported all the liked music and playlists from youtube...

You guys totally dropped the ball. Apple music is leagues ahead of you now in terms of user customization. Meanwhile all you do is try pander to everyone while in actuality giving no one what they want. Spotify is a joke

You have over 10,000 votes for this but it's a "not right now"?  Are you technically incapable or just don't care what your users want?  This feature, along with the inability to remove podcasts that a user has listened to for a minute or two is going to drive people away from your service.

Currently having this problem… I came for solutions but i see people who have had this problem for years. Is it not possible to add a feature to block or even remove a podcast? I have a podcast appearing to me with inappropriate content that I DO NOT want. I have tried multiple times to remove, block or hide it but nothing works. It has been well over a year that this post was updated (that I can see) 

 

Please do fix this problem ASAP. It is unreasonably inconvenient and unnecessary problem.

If it wasn't for duo premium, I would of moved to a competitor over this. If any competitor matches duo's price I'll replace Spotify on the spot over this issue.

I am so tired of seeing the same album, and a podcast I listened to for a few minutes months ago, be the only two items listed under "Good Afternoon." I don't care about listening to podcasts on Spotify, yet its always advertised at the top of the home screen. Why can I not remove these "topic" groupings? Why can't I "ignore" certain albums or shows, so they stop appearing? The fact that none of this is customizable is in fact infuriating, more so by the fact that I am reminded of this lack of basic functionality that is at best ignored by you (Spotify) or and at worst overlooked by the incompetence of your bad UI/UX design leads. Get over yourself. 100 pages of comments and 10,000 votes, and you still are complacent in your ignorance. If you can't improve the usability of the product, the amount of content is meaningless. Going to start looking at Tidal.
