[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.

"**bleep**" = c.r.a.p.

These **bleep**ing podcasts really get on my nerves! I've clicked "not interested" on certain podcasts hundreds of

times but they keep coming back to annoy me further. Why does this feature exist if it doesn't come close to working?

 

**bleep**ing Spotify! Maybe we should all stream music 24/7, even when we're not listening, just to generate license fees for Spotify?

Totally agree with a personalised home feed. I wrote this somewhere else:

"In my home screen a few months ago there used to be suggested albums (old and new) and new releases. This was absolute gold to me, and Spotify's best feature by far, the algorithm has lead me to so much good new music. This has now disappeared and I can only see playlists. I will *never ever* listen to a playlist, only full albums. I'm simply not interested in individual songs. How can I get the suggested albums restored as I worry I will never discover new music through Spotify again?"

After being a premium user for over 10 years I really think the home screen of Spotify absolutely sucks.

 

It keeps you in the same loop, it never recommends great new artists (you have to really dig into the homepage somewhere below to find that section) and it only gives what you've listened to. Over and over.

 

• "Daily mix" = same music I've already listened to.

• "Your top mixes" = again the same sh:).

• "Recently played" = How about showing me a goddam track list of what I listened to? I mean, Winamp had this in the 90's for christ's sake. How about giving me a clear history of what I listened to?

• "Mood"? Yeah, that's what music is all about now. Mood. How about good old genres?

• "Your Playlists". Right. So if I want to listen to the same playlist every new day in my life this is the right place to go. GREAT!

• "Spotify Playlists". Totally un-related playlists to my music taste. Worthless.

• "Your favourite artists again" again. Over and over and over and over.

• Then, these "classic" generic playlists with the Spotify logo on, with nothing related to my music taste. Blah!

I'm sure this is all on purpose, but I think it really sucks. I might be rude but I love Spotify and I really hope you hear this and you're thinking about creating a new home experience. Youtube has a much better style of recommending you new music and I'm sure you can do it even better than that.

Thanks for hearing me.

i would like to remove specific playlist on my main homepage.

Thanks for all the replys and likes. I just wanted to say - I am gone.

I am going to have to cancel my premium duo subscription if podcasts from the likes of greaseball Tucker Carlson can’t be blocked, as in, completely gone no longer viewable.  Just like you allow with music artists.  I want to block him and Rogan.  You have one month.  Zero problem going back to Apple Music.

Checking in— slimeball Tucker Carlson is finally missing (no idea if by luck or what), but I still see Joe Rogan’s stupid face on my homepage.  Just stop pushing it so hard— what gives?  2 weeks til cancellation if it’s not gone or I’m not given an option to block.
