[Profile] Reset Taste Profile / History

Please allow for a reset option, so you can start all over again with a clean sheet.

 

For now, you have to start over with an entirely new account to do just that. And for that you need to contact Customer Support. Not very convenient.

Updated on 2018-01-05

Hi everyone, we're back for an update now that this idea has reached 1,000 users.  At this time we still don't have plans to let users reset their taste profile histories. You are welcome to create a new account with a new email address at any time (no need to contact customer support). However, this isn't recommended as you're truly starting from zero and it takes some time for us to learn your taste profile.

 

We're also working on better ways that you can give us direct feedback on features such as Discover Weekly so we can learn more about your tastes. 

 

This idea is still open for votes and comments and we'll revisit this if it continues to grow. Thanks!

Exactly what they said to me.

I posted on this thread back in May that looking up Despacito a couple of times for my daughter made Spotify believe that I wanted to hear nothing but explicit Spanish language rap and hip hop. I spent about 6 weeks going through my Discover Weekly and downvoting every single song that was given to me and upvoting all of the stuff I liked in my other playlists. It never changed a thing. I jumped ship and am much happier with Apple Music now. Sorry, Spotify. I was a paying user but your ridiculous AI and lack of support means you don’t get any more money from me.

Lol, dead that people are moving to apple music because of this.. Spotify.. it's not like you can't segment listening patterns vs resetting our discover weekly taste profile.  Seems pretty lazy that you wouldn't dedicate a 1 backend 1 frontend developer for at most a month to put this issue to bed.

FYI, this comment was just deleted from Gealmo.  I don't see the option to delete my own comment, so it appears spotify did so, yikes:

Hey Guys and Gals! 
You may remember me from a post I made a few months ago, well I seem to have found a fix after months of testing and suffering spanish hip-hop.

What I found worked for me is to of course un-follow and un-save any artist or song you do not want your discover weekly to recommend to you. Furthermore, go and purposely follow and save all the types of songs and artists you do indeed want Spotify Discover Weekly to recommend to you.


!!!Finally the most important thing to do is to UNFOLLOW DISCOVER WEEKLY!!!

I found that even though I had unfollowed and followed all the artists I didn't like and did like I was still getting a discover weekly that wasn't recommending what I wanted to hear and that is because every week, as I had still been following the discover weekly playlist, the algorithm had been getting updated with the recurring trashy music tastes that the playlist would create each week.
It took me maybe 2 to 3 weeks to correct the playlist once I'd...
1.) Unfollowed Discover Weekly Playlist
2.) Unfollowed and Unsaved all artists and songs I did not wish to hear
3.) Saved and Followed new albums and songs from Artists that I like and hadn't already saved or followed.

I hope this helps some people out because, as you can see in my previous post, I was totally distraught with Spotify.

They banned me it seems... so I made a new account to post this

My 2018 Wrapped is terrible, Spotify is against me, there is no fix to this issue in the short term.

Cancelling my subscription right now

I love this idea I could absolutely use this I don’t know why Spotify doesn’t think this is a good feature
