Ability to block or hide podcasts and artists

Ability to block or hide podcasts and artists

Having the ability to block podcasts you don’t want to see or artists you don’t want to listen to would be very helpful. I accidentally clicked on a podcast that I have no interest in listening to and I can not get it out of my home page. Being able to block it would be very helpful

Hey there @8-mmy1m_k6r7h,


Thanks for posting in the Community and welcome.


We hope you don't mind us moving your post out of the ideas section to one of our Help boards as it fits better here.


That being said, we'd like to add some insights here. On Android and iOS, head to the artist page you'd like to block> tap on the 3 dots > Do not play this artist option. The content of the selected artist won't be played/recommended in the future (take into account this may take some days to be reflected).


On another note, we'd like you to know it's currently not possible to block podcasts permanently. We understand where you're coming from and we noticed another users had a similar request, so they posted these idea about it:

Feel free to add your vote and you can also subscribe to it in the three-dot menu, that way you can stay up-to-date with any relevant news about this. Even though the status of one of them is set as Not right now as there are no immediate plans to implement this, it doesn't mean the idea has been rejected.


Keep in mind that when posting ideas, you'll need to post one suggestion per idea. It's important you follow our Ideas Guidelines Exchange, so your suggestion will be approved more quickly and smoothly.


Hope this clears things up. If you have any questions or need a hand with anything else, we're always a post away.

I agree.  The constant advertising of podcasts that I have marked "Not interested" is ruining my homepage and therefore my Spotify experience.

I just rate them 1 star and they disappear after a while. It's annoying but I guess the only solution to ads for crappy commercial podcasts contaminating my feed

Currently the only options under the three dots are "follow, rate show and share." There's no option to not show the podcast or artist.
