[Profile] Reset or hide Recently Played Artists

I have been seeing a lot of people complaining that their Recently Played Artists list is either inaccurate or rarely updated. I am experiencing both of these problems. A function to reset the list would help, but at the very least Spotify could bring back the option to hide it from your profile.

 

Thanks.

Hey folks,



 

Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your vote to this idea

We're marking this as 'Not Right Now', as a reset option isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

 

If we do have any new info to share on that, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.

With regards to hiding them, we've seen a few reports of the 'Show My Current Top Artists' button not working as it should. If you're experiencing this, please can you head to this thread, and add the requested info?

 



Thanks!

I was recently made aware that my "Recently Played" music is showing a bunch of Latino boy band music and weird electronic dance music.  I was afraid my account was hacked so I changed my password and signed out all devices.  Now I see this thread.  This is really odd because the genre of music is pretty consistent with a genre a music I do NOT listen too.  If it was random different types I would think just some inaccuracies with Spotify.  Has anyone else experienced this to this degree?

Yes. That’s exactly what happened to me and I also thought my account was being used by someone else.

it took 1 year for it to become a "good idea" and that now 2 years later it still hasn't changed

This is such a requested feature over the internet in a cry for privacy that you'd think it would be implemented by now. I don't care if you see or sell my data as a company, it's expected these days; just let us not display it to the general public. What is this world where everybody has to be able to see and know what you're getting up to these days?

Hi all,

yes a reset function or the option to hide 'recently played artists' would be good.

 

To me it's not a problem that my 'recently played artists' are shown, as long as they reflect what I really like.

I can partly control this with private settings (on phone and desktop), but not when I use the webplayer... (for example when you get a link on the community in playlists-exchange and you just want to find out what it sounds like, those artists will appear in 'recently played artists')

So, Spotify-team: please add the option private listening to the webplayer.  Thanks!

I would love this. I've looked everywhere for this, and emailed "Spotify contact", and am growing frustrated. All I want is to delete stuff I'm not listening to on my Recently Played. I have even gotten the computer app and done it on there but it does not carry over to my IPhone. PLEASE fix it.

Also my friend still has the option and she is on Premium. Do we have to get Premium in order to get the option back?

I 100% agree! But since nothing has been done I doubt they’ll fix it!
