Played on Denon HEOS Soundbar via Xiaomi Mi 9 SE
My Question or Issue
When playing a playlist which includes songs of blocked artists or songs you wished to "don't play", the Spotify App doesn't play these songs, which is great. However, when listening on a Wifi-Speaker (HEOS Soundbar in my case) via Spotify Connect, the blocked songs or blocked artists will still be played.
To reproduce this issue, create a playlist with two songs from different artists, block one of the artists and play the playlist on repeat.
In addition to the Denon device I also tested this with a Samsung Multiroom speaker and the behaviour is the same.
The option to block songs/artists is one of the greatest addition to Spotify within the last few years and it would be nice if it worked also when listening on a Wifi speaker.
I just found the other thread with the answer that "don't play" is device and playlist specific. Still, if I block the whole artist (and not just a song in a playlist) in the Android App, this gets respected on the Desktop App too, so I think at least this particular feature is synced and should also work when using Connect.
