[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!

"Editor's picks" in particular I find totally annoying. Always on top and I have never seen anything remotely interesting there. Not only not interesting, often I find it offensive even to suggest I might be interested in that c**p.

Amen to that


I would like the ability to turn off Discover on home page of mobile app. I find that the home page’s “because you listened to...” recommendations to be garbage full of sexuality explicit pornography on album covers just because I listen to few instrumental tracks. The fact that Spotify doesn’t implement a true parental control filter system makes me just not want to ever pay for this pornography service anymore.


What also would be nice, I need to be able to change the default open page to library so that I don’t have to keep using my custom Siri shortcut.


i personally feel like Spotify’s recommendations to be fill with Pornography. Considering this app is for 13+ that would make this really a 18+ app requireing legal consent of the company.


This needs to get done yesterday.

Why in the world am I forced to see political **bleep** that I have no interest in on my home page when I open the app.

Come on already. Customize the home screen or get rid of it.

Thank you


Yes, we need to be able to customize the start screen of Spotify, please!!!! I'm tired of seeing the horrible suggested music based on my country 😕

Casual Listener

Why isnt this Idea put through already??


Only thing I can imagine  is that they are making money like this, selling spots on the start screen to music companies. Especially to those whose music otherwise nobody would ever want to hear.


@Lausianne - that and unless there is like dozens and dozens pages of replies here, they won't give a flying @*#$. We're like a drop of water in the ocean to them. Sad.. but true 😕

Prove me wrong Spotify, I dare you.



Oh, it's defintely making them money - why else would they not allow these things to be hidden? Also look at the "top ideas" board - this is no where to be seen, even though this has more votes than other items in those board. They'd rather let this run until it falls off, and ignore it. The only way they will understand is if enough people drop their membership due to their ignoring of this issue.


I agree with this 100%. One of the biggest downsides of Spotify is the random order of things on the homepage. It supposedly tries to read my interests and put things i may be interest in first but it usually just makes things harder to find what i want. i dont know how they pick the "similar artists" or the order of some of these shelves. i wish either we could customize the order  (for example if i dont play podcasts a lot put it at the bottom). I know they are pushing the 2019 year in review stuff but its taking up the top 3 shelves of my screen right now and i just skip past it. Or at least if i could understand how Spofity decides the order of these shelves so i could more accurate replicate them how i want based on certain actions. Honestly it gets too busy i think and if nothing else can be done maybe we could chose to start the app on a different tab, such as browse or library?
