Hey folks,

 

Thank you for your posts and feedback.

 

The Shortcuts section you see on your Home Screens are part of ongoing efforts to improve the user experience by providing meaningful, relevant content recommendations to you. We understand that for those of you posting here, this isn't the case. Your feedback is what helps the right teams find out, that this still needs work on. 

 

As everything, this is a learning process and we're monitoring both backstage data and user feedback to improve our features.

 

In the meantime you can leave a +VOTE and Subscribe to this idea. You can also read how your feedback reach Spotify here.

 

Cheers!

Ok I found a way that might take a day or two. Listen to a couple of radios. Play them even when youre not using it. And whatever you do, dont open or play what you dont want on there.

I have the same problem. It shows albums I have never listened to.

Their response is simply lazy and ignorant, bordering offensive. How can Spotify deny user's intervention on their machine learning?! I can understand the idea behind "Shortcut" but disregarding the user's opinion on the relevance of the shortcuts' content and edit it accordingly is outrageous!

Every issue I've had with Spotify so far... I've googled, arrived at this forum, and have been apalled at spotify's terrible responses to the community.

 

Hire a better team. You guys suck.

Unfortunate that this is the only answer as opposed to being able to see what your recent listening history was. One more reason to quit Spotify and upgrade to YT music.

I voted for the "Customize Start Screen" idea.

 

It is mind-boggling that my shortcuts are all of these bizarre musicians I have never even listened to. Total garbage. I have tried Spotify for the last month because it has better search features than YT Music, but this hijacking of Recently Played and Shortcuts is totally unacceptable.

 

This is some great streaming service? What a bunch of jerks.

It's infuriating that something so obvious requires a feature request at all.  I effing hate spotify, one month in.  They have this remarkable knack for screwing up just enough of the service to ruin it.

Spotify Home Shortcuts are one of the most obnoxious things I've seen. Even when explicit content is turned off, unwanted shortcuts to **bleep** appear in Home Shortcuts, and there's virtually no way to get rid of it. Spotify at least provide a way to clean up Home Shortcuts.

I'm getting tired of seeing this in my shortcuts every time I open up the app.Capture 2.PNG

Why isn't Spotify completely customizable? Why aren't "shortcuts" and "Recently Played" able to be cleared in the mobile apps and the desktop version?
