I can't believe that after all these years, something as simple as this still hasn't been added

I live in Denmark and has the same problem. Whenever I go to browse or podcasts (never tried podcasts, but as long as this issue is still not fixed I'm probably not going to use them) it recomends me danish playlists or danish podcasts

 

Just because I live in Denmark, doesn't mean that I want to listen to it

Signed up for Premium yesterday. It's hilarious to me that this has been an issue for years now. What are the people at Spotify doing? My entire app is riddled with German Rap music because i live in germany. Hey spotify. I could not care ANY LESS about german music.

 

I'm amazed that it only took them 1 day to get me to reconsider my subscription. Also what is up with their obsession with "voting for features"? You are one of the biggest music applications on the planet. You HAVE the resources to develop features like "recommendation settings" in no time whatsoever. Offering users OPTIONAL features is never a negative and considering how this thread has been going on for several years now it sure as heck (they actually censor the word  "h e l l"  on this forum? That's even more hilarious) is a "requested enough" feature.

 

It's embarrassing that it's 2019 and this STILL hasn't been resolved.

 

Some user will propably read this post in 2021 and chuckle at how this is STILL an issue. I reposted the idea into their idea section but it will most likely not get us anywhere. Sadly this issue mainly affects non-english users and since this forum is english only and Spotify seems to only care about their terrible voting system on this forum, i doubt we will ever get Spotify to change this.

0 likes. This "product" (Spotify) was never about its customers, was it ever? I say this because it's becoming clearer than every feature decision is imposed with little to no regard to customer's preferences. And yes, I use a VPN for almost a year now and still get gruesome latin music recommendations every single time. So what is the bottom line here? What is the truth version of this?

2019 and this is still an issue, are you even listening anymore at this point?
I am honestly considering just switching to Apple Music at this point, recommendations are RELEVANT to what I want recommended to me.

This is nonsense. I just want to get RELEVANT RECOMMENDATIONS! Isn't this what I pay for?! Isn't this what Spotify is supposed to do? Like many others, I do not want to see god awful pop music of some middle eastern country.

I agree with you. At this point only thing keeping me switching to another service is my playlists and laziness.

Same problem here. I'm a Latino guy living in Poland and I just don't dig polish songs.

 

I'm paying premium and can't understand why I don't have this option available.

 

Surprising this issue has been open for so long. I'm quitting Spotify.

I can't believe this's still a problem! I've just switched from Apple Music and now I'm regretting my decision really bad!
