My Question or Issue

In the last update that I'm aware of, the icon for removing a song from a Radio changed. This was no issue but rather that clicking the new button that is now called "Hide this song" doesn't do anything. 
I'd like to ask one thing. Why change something that didn't need fixing? The previous button which was called "Remove song from radio" or something along those lines, worked perfectly fine and it helped tune a radio to the songs of a specific genre I was enjoying within the playlist I made the radio from.

It would just be nice to have something that worked. Like it already did.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for your reports about this.

 

Just to avoid confusion, if you're not seeing a "Remove song" button in Radio playlists, this is expected behaviour. We recently changed the way that Radio works - you can read more about the changes here.

 

If you're experiencing the issue with the "Hide this song" 🚫 button in Radio stations not working, then we wanted to let you know that we've passed this on to the right team, who are currently looking into it.

We’ll keep you posted and let you know as soon as we have any updates on this.

 

Thanks!

Having the same issue here. I hope it is solved. I agree that the previous system worked just fine.

I'm experiencing this too. My radios keep replaying songs that I don't want to hear. I've stopped using Spotify for now. Hopefully they can get the "Hide this song" button/icon working soon.

I'm having the same issue, like another user I tried an uninstall / reinstall and that did NOT fix it.

I have the same problem aswell. 

 

This is a common thing when i update my Spotify, and get a new fault. 


Getting tired of this.

It's because Radios are just static playlists now. It's a joke.

Me too. Used to work, now it's there and lights up on hover, but doesn't do anything when clicked. Clearly a bug - please fix.

also, the algorithm for playlist radios is **bleep** up. my whole playlist is downbeat and chill and the radio is like "ALRIGHT, TIME FOR SICKO MODE!"
