[iOS] Unable to Dislike Songs in Discover Weekly Playlist

Casual Listener

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)

Hey again,

 

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 @sloanlennon

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this - we'll be glad to help you out here.

 

Most common issues can be fixed with a quick reinstall of the app. In some situations however, a clean (more thorough) reinstall of the app might be needed. This way you can start afresh with Spotify on your iPhone. 

 

Check out this help page in order to find the steps for clean reinstall on the affected device. 

 

Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.

I am having the same issue on my iPhone (but not on my Windows PC). I have tried a quick reinstall as well as a clean reinstall. The dislike button shows up for the first time I load the app after the reinstall, but if I close the app and re-open it, the dislike button disappears from the Discover Weekly playlist (it is still showing up in the Daily Mix playlists).

I also tried to offload the app, delete the app, then reinstall. The dislike button shows up in the discover weekly playlist the first time I open the app after the reinstall, but if I close the app and re-open it, the dislike button disappears again from the Discover Weekly playlist.

Same thing here.

I've tried a "Clean reinstall" a couple times, but still I have no dislike button, either in mu phone or an iPad.

Mac Desktop app seems ok, though.

I don’t know how clean reinstall could help here. There is no Dislike button anymore in Spotify playlists. Use Hide song instead.

Same problem here. I really miss the dislike buttons. It shows up on my desktop app just not on iPhone.

Same problem here as well.

I did try to follow the clean-reinstall procedure and like&dislike button showed up at the beginning, but unfortunately after once I turn off and reopen it the button will disappear again. Hope there’s other solution to fix this issue.

btw I use iPhone SE2 and iOS version is 13.4.1

They replaced Dislike with Hide song, just press ... link next to a track in playlist.

It's not the same thing, and I don't want to go through a menu just to let be known I  don't like a music. 

We should have a one-button way to avoid specific songs/artists.

Why fix what is not broken?
