My Question or Issue

My spotify app has been showing episodes for you with disgusting contents that I'm definitely not interested in on top of my screen. Please let me know how to remove those. I'm extremely annoyed by this.

Hello, I also experience the same thing. There is currently lots of sexual contents in "Episodes for you" and there is no way to remove them! I'd like a dislike feature or remove feature for these recommendations! Thanks!

"While there isn't an option to customize your home screen"
You're customizing it for us with irrelevant and unwanted content, and showing it on the most prominent place on the home page. If you're testing new content, do it somewhere else. Otherwise, de-customize our home screen please and get rid of this utter waste of space containing unwanted, and sometimes even disturbing, "content".

I came to this page with this exact same issue. The fact that I am unable to change my episodes for you recommendations means that I am stuck with seeing this upside down Cross and the words HAIL **bleep** every time I open my Spotify. This seriously creepy and concerning that I am unable to get it removed.

It's really bad, makes we seriously consider moving away from Spotify altogether to Apple or some other service, there is no way to not show the disgusting content or remove it, and it just stays there. Registering accounts in the family plan for my kids revealed similar content, some quality control is expected.

I literally got spotify to listen to music at work and now everytime I go on my homepage I have a disgusting big **bleep**. I shouldn't have to "Vote" on other comments to get this "maybe removed" in like a year. If facebook was doing that they would probably already have a congressional hearing or something

I mean it's pretty simple, if I get another recommendation I will just cancel my subscription and either go somewhere else or just use youtube. I don't have the patience for spotify to tune their algorithm to filter that blatant bait in a reasonable time

For how many additional days do you want your users to feel disgusted everytime they open your app?

You understand where we're coming from? You do, @Novy?

 

I briefly shared the Spotify browser while in a meeting with my boss & his boss while opening another program and didn't think much about it. 

 

You CAN listen to Spotify at work, right? This is not supposed to be an NSFW program, right? You should never be ashamed to have the Spotify browser open, right?

 

Because this is what y'all put ON THE TOP OF MY F****** HOMEPAGE, and there is no way to get rid of it. 

 

Do better.

May have to stop using the app if it shows me soft **bleep** when I open it. There's a reason I don't use Instagram anymore. Guess spotify is next

 

Edit - literally there's a picture of a girl's **bleep** on this page... Lol oh the irony

Hi there folks,

 

Thank you for your replies and feedback.

 

We understand that things can feel frustrating when things don't work as you'd like them to. Rest assured that we're always trying to improve as we always strive to improve our features.

 

In the meantime we suggest that you head over to the idea that's been provided in the thread and leave a +VOTE and Subscribe to it for any updates regarding this.

 

A Not right now status comes after the idea has reached the correct teams and for transparency we've put that status. It's not impossible to get it in the future, but we cannot make any promises

 

We hope for your understanding and that you continue using Spotify and find it gets better in the future.

 

Once again - thanks for the feedback, we appreciate it. Let us know if we can help you with anything else. 

 

Take care!

You've added it, you can remove it. You can stick that not right now where the sun don't shine. It's been an issue for weeks and all we get is a polite way of saying "we can't be arsed to change it"?
You can help us by actually helping us.

Guys this feature strongly discouraged me from a service that shares a lot of time in my daily routines. It surprised that I wasn't the only one either. Please take these feedback reports seriously.
