I'm having issues with the dislike button on my Discover Weekly playlist not showing up. I'm using an iPhone 6s with the most current version of the app installed. I can go on to my desktop app to dislike songs, but that doesn't register on my iPhone. So I'm still hearing songs I've disliked via the desktop app on my iPhone. Again, my app is updated to the current version. I am able to like songs within my discover weekly playlist on my iPhone but I am not able to dislike songs. Very frustrating as you can imagine. The main reason I use spotify is for the discover weekly and daily mixes playlists. If I'm unable to curate my discover weekly playlist by like and disliking songs via iPhone (my primary listening device) I no longer see the point in paying for Spotify. If this isn't resolved soon I am certainly canceling my membership. Again, frustrating to say the least.
(iOS 13.4.1 and Spotify Version 8.5.55)

Thanks for your patience while we were looking into this!
We're always testing things in the app to improve its functionality. While this happens, you might see something on the app your friend doesn’t, or you could get a new feature to try out temporarily.
This would explain why you're having troubles to see the dislike button in the Now Playing View of your Discover Weekly in the mobile app.
However, for now, you should be able to hide any tracks you'd like to not listen to by clicking the three-dot menu and tapping Hide this song.
Hope this info is useful but don't hesitate to give us a shout if there's anything else.
Have a lovely day 🙂
Hey there @foobarbar,
Thanks for sharing this!
Rest assured that we'll pass this along to the right folks.
Bear in mind that in the meanwhile you should still be able to hide any tracks you'd like to not listen to by clicking the three-dot menu and tapping Hide this song.
Further, if you'd like to make any specific feature requests, you can always do so in our Idea Exchange. This gives the opportunity to other Spotify users to add their support by adding their +VOTE and comments to ideas they'd also like to see.
If you're curious on how ideas get implemented and how your feedback reaches the teams internally through ideas, we'd recommend taking a look at this Spotify Answer.
Hope this is a bit more helpful but don't hesitate to give us a shout if there's anything else! We'll be happy to lend a hand.
Have a lovely day 🙂
Thank you for all the reports so far. We've checked things backstage and it appears that this feature has been changed with our recent updates.
We can confirm that, at the moment, the "Dislike" icon is only available directly on the Now Playing view for users on the Free plan.
If you’re a Premium user you can still dislike tracks in any playlist you don’t own from within the context menu (3 dots). If you'd like to change the placement back to the Now Playing view, you can always submit a new idea for it in the Idea Exchange - it’s the best way to provide your feedback for new features such as this one.
There is already an existing idea which suggests something similar - feel free to add your vote to it here.
Hope this info is useful. Give us a shout if there's anything else we can help you with.
