MOVE THE HIDE SONG BUTTON

SPOTIFY DEVELOPERS: When listening to the Song Radio, can you please please PLEASE move the "Hide Song" button DOWN so that it's NOT at the top of the list. You guys must have just put in this feature because I've managed to hide (and subsequently skip) every song I've liked on the radio every time I go to add it to a playlist. The "Add to Playlist" feature was always at the top of the list, and I LOVED it that way! No muss, no fuss! But now I keep skipping my songs and have to go and Un-Hide all my favourite songs... Please, you wonderful spotify developers - you've done an incredible job for all the years I've been using spotify, you keep it sharp and working well on every device I've had and haven't let me down yet. So please, for the love of all that is holy in this world and beyond, will you PLEASE move that FREAKING button down the bottom of the list where it belongs?? You would have my eternal gratitude. 

 

Seriously though, thank you for all that you guys do! Stay safe out there eh! 🙂

THIS X10000000000. PLEEEEEASE. you should at least have to scroll down on the "..." menu before "hide song" appears, if not put the option at the bottom of the menu. how is putting "hide song" right under "like song" conducive to user engagement

Yes. I specifically googled this simply because I wanted to see if I was the only one that had the same problem. Evidently not.. hope the devs listen to this and move the hide song button down lower on the menu 👍👍

I totally agree, I don't understand why you move those critical buttons; like the 3 vertical dots, they were fine at the bottom, right next to the control buttons, it was handy to click on the heart and then add it to a playlist...

So annoying! Why would I even need to hide a song if the playlist is curated for me? Much more likely I want to add it to a playlist.

Yes please, I came here to say exactly this. I just updated my Spotify and this is *so* annoying and such a terrible place to put that button. I’ve used Spotify for years, my muscle memory of how to add son I like quickly on the go relies on the buttons staying in the same place. Please. Do not. Move. The buttons. 

Thank you.
