[All Platforms] Customize Start Screen

Status: Not Right Now

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!

Over and over for years, users have begged you, Spotify, to be able to customize our home pages. I hate podcasts and I resent them being shoved at me constantly. Either let me customize my homepage, or let me at least turn off the constant podcast advertising. I am not interested in podcasts and I did not sign up for Spotify to listen to podcasts. I want my music with no distractions. PERIODT.

Agreed, the junk home screen is getting really tedious. If I wanted to have trending, presumed, or sponsored suggestions force fed down my throat every time I logged in, there's a place for that- it's called the internet. Please, Spotify, make it stop. To date I've had zero useful suggestions, and a whole lot of stuff that makes me want to drink everything under the kitchen sink rather than listen to music.

How is this STILL not solved, it is clearly shoved down our throats, i could not careless about podcasts, I have never ever listened to them, yet I have to scroll past them every single time that I open the homescreen. And then there's that smiling dork whose face i have to see so many times throughout the day even though i have never clicked on his podcast. At least stop pushing them on us premium users??

I want a way to dismiss or pin certain recommendation rows on my spotify homepage. I am not interested in many of these rows and would like to customize through dismissal feedback. Similarly, there are rows which I often check i.e. "Made for you" but they may not be on the page. I want to ensure these are on the page by a pin.

Wow 55 pages of not caring one bit about customers.
This has to be the worst subscription service support I've ever seen.


I recommend 'playlist buddy app' for migrating playlists to YTMusic once you uninstall Spotify.

Today, 80% of all suggestions on the Home screen consist of podcasts. I don't listen to podcasts via Spotify. This is becoming more ridiculous by the day. 

EIGHTY percent!

it's really annoying to have to find the things i'm looking for because they're in a different place every time. for being something so many people use on commutes, it's unnecessarily time consuming to play hide and seek

Due to the major limitations with Spotify kids I am using normal Spotify for my children. I do not want to see scantily clad women on the home page for my 13 year old child. Please allow the home screen to be personalised.

I used to love spotify, but the shenenigans over the years with the desktop app and reduced usability of the home/start screen, and finally the in-app-ads for Duo made me realize my money is better spent elsewhere. My premium is cancelled and taken to a competitor. 

I'd love to get back when spotify has their priorities straight again; which no less includes a proper navigation and/or homescreen experience as discussed thoroughly in this topic. Until then! Adios ...
