[Mobile][Discover] Dismiss/Refuse Suggestions

Lately I've been getting podcasts recommended to me on Spotify when I open it on mobile. Generally, I wouldn't be bothered by this, but at this point I get them every single time I open the app, and there have been suggestions that bring up traumatizing memories. This is distressing because I love using Spotify, and it IS my music app of choice, but it's very not fun to nearly have a breakdown almost every time I open the app.

 

I strongly believe that Spotify should introduce a "dismiss" or "do not show again" feature, similar to how YouTube lets you say "I'm not interested in this video."

 

I'm sure there are other users who have other more mundane things such as artists they straight up don't want to listen to, or the same circumstance as having things suggested to them that are either distressing or completely out of their interests.

Same for me because I really want to remove playlists that only have modern country songs (examples: Very Nearly Nashville & Wild Country) from the so-called "More of What You Like" category (should have been renamed as "Recommended Playlists for You" because the current name is very inaccurate to me and I never heard some of those playlists from that category before) unless it is a crossover country pop playlist "PopCo" that features both pop and country artists. I also want to remove the Spotify Singles playlists from that category because I might not want to listen to those playlists very often. In addition to playlists, I want to remove songs by Ryan Adams and Whiskeytown from some Spotify playlists that I already like (including Roots Revival). The only genres that I want to see from that category that I am most familiar with are EDM, pop, rock, R&B, Latin, folk, bluegrass, Americana, acoustic covers, jazz, alternative/indie, pop punk, classical, Christian/Gospel, and oldies. I also don't have a problem with seeing Regional Mexican, hip-hop, blues, and K-Pop (just the ones that include BTS) playlists on that category although I don't know much about those genres. In addition, Spotify should stop suggesting podcasts to me based on popups because I never listen to podcasts on Spotify before but I added a few manually in case I have enough time to listen to podcasts and another reason is because Spotify should have a "Shuffle Play" feature of each podcast so I don't have to listen to the latest episode first.

Yes! I'm so effing sick of this. I've paid for premium, I shouldn't have podcasts (don't use spotify for podcasts) being "suggested", aka advertised, to me. I should be able to turn them off, or at the very least swipe them away.

This is a super good feature Spotify should have! Every once in awhile I'm suggested things that I just don't want anything to do with. I can't see how this isn't already a thing. Spotify! Look into this!
