My Question or Issue

How do I prevent or block certain podcasts from being recommended? I'm sick of seeing the higher ground podcast everywhere on Spotify and want to get rid of it.

Yeah it's messed up how you can block artists and hide songs but I can't get rid of the podcast I pressed by accident from my home page

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

 

Other users would also like to option to add/remove content from their landing screen. You can show your support to the Idea here.

 

The status Not Right Now simple means that this is not something that will be deployed in the next update, however ideas can still gather traction and be implemented in upcoming releases of the app.

 

Hope this helps. Don't hesitate to reach out again if you've got questions.

Very frustrating for me too! I have nothing against the Obamas, but I'm so tired of seeing advertisements for their podcasts every time I open the app. Seriously considering moving back to Apple Music, even though it is an inferior service.

Hey @freddycrabs, thanks for reaching out to the Community!

 

I am afraid this isn’t possible right now. If this is something you’d like to see in the future, you can always create a new Idea about this following these steps.

 

I hope you’ll find this useful. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything else!

My issue is with voice commands and similar sounding titiles.

Every morning I ask Google Home to play "Your Daily Drive"

Worked great.  Then...and now...I get "Guy's Daily Drive" podcast.

Now, Guy's podcast is actually something I might be interested in...but I really want the Spotify playlist when I ask for it.

Annoying that I get michelle obama s podcast shoved down my throat.  No way to block or remove.

I completely agree. I've never used Spotify for podcasts, yet every time I'm on my home screen I see Michelle Obama recommended constantly, no others like Joe Rogan, whos podcast I actually watch/listen too. Come on guys, mix it up a bit! How about promoting the smaller podcasts too there are some amazing litterally and educational casters out there, give them the spotlight for a while. 

 

Also (but unrelated) what's the point of having the ability to download music for offline play if you (Spotify) are going to stop it playing after ten minutes. Smh.
