My Question or Issue
Hello, I’ve been usig spotify for more than 6 years and I have created at least 20-30 playlists during this time. I don’t use the “like” button or the “library” at all. Although I’ve been listening to my playlists all the time, the weekly discovery lists that Spotify makes for me has nothing to do with my music taste. Is there a way for me to solve this? ( for example i like to listen to a lot of rock/pop music but spotify keep suggesting me Jazz and instrumental music)

Thanks for your reply.
We suggest you to keep up listening the music you like and "teach" the app using the Like and Don't play this features. Liking just a song doesn’t automatically like the album or artist it comes from. To get more relevant suggestions dependent on artist or albums, we suggest to actively like them as well to better shape up Your Library. As this is a gradual process, it'd really need some time for the algorithm to adjust itself. Also make sure you're not using the Private listening feature without reason, as anything you listen to in a Private Session may not influence your music recommendations, e.g. Discover Weekly.
It's also worthwhile restarting the app twice in a row. This may sound odd but it's how the app does a refresh between the app and your account. If things don't improve with time, another approach could be to create a new account and start fresh, thus developing your music preferences from scratch, but this time as you like them to be. The public playlists you've created on your old account could still be followed with the new one to save you time and effort.
Hope this clears things up. If you have any questions or need anything else, the Community is here for you.
