Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone knew how to get a better radio or station with Spotify? The biggest problem I have right now is all the repeats, usually after making a station, after 3 weeks worth of listening it ends up becoming a repeat station. Now I don't mind some repeats, but I'm pretty sure its been ages since I've heard something new on it.
Please note that I don't want to make a new station because it will likely be based on a song thats in my current one. I guess where I'm going with this is that I tried RDIO recently, and am loving all the variation in tracks they have, and the fact that I can be more adventerous trying new songs, and less so and getting super similar ones is great. I've also found a lot more music that I've loved with it, which I don't find with Spotify.
Unfortunately while I think Spotify is defintiely the better service of the two, I usually use the radio feature the most which means essentially not bothering with Spotify as much. Was hoping there might be some way to either change how adventerous or not my stations are, or if there was someway to get a better radio that doesnt end up being repeats within the month so that I can stay with just Spotfy?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unfortunately, there is not currently a setting for how adventurous your station is, although I would recommend adding kudos and comments to this idea in the meantime.
As far as avoiding repeats, I can't offer a perfect solution to this, but I've found that thumbing up and down songs can severely cut down on the amount of variety a station has, so you might try using those sparingly. That said, it can still be difficult to get a station just like you want, but it does seem like Spotify fine tunes the algorhithms quite a bit, so hopefully this is something that will continue to improve over time.
