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?


What to say on this? I see it as a total marketing decision. Spotify is a music on demand service, they don't want you to dislike what they offer.

That’s  not it though because the dislike button is still showing up on other playlists (like Daily Mixes) and on PC but just not Discover Weekly on iOS.

This is not the case for iOS. There is only "like" button, but no "block" button in Discover Weekly or Release Radar playlists. Just if you go deeper in the song settings you may "Hide song".

I can’t say anything about PC version, but I don’t see Dislike anywhere on mobile app. There’s Hide button where Dislike used to be.

Yep, I am not seeing that button on my Discover Weekly playlist though. See screenshots from Discover Weekly versus Daily Mix.

I don't know why they use different layouts for different playlists, it is bad UI. But Hide button is hidden in Discover Weekly under ... link.

If that was me, I would suggest pretty simple solution, that benefits all. All controls are low, Like and Hide are close to the track title, feels right.

Agreed.  “Hiding” a song (The new Dislike) should not only hide the song from the list and device you are listening to but it should obviously transfer that decision to all devices that you are logged into (just like the like function does).  Moreover, it should hide that song in all future playlists that it might be included in.  Trust me.  If I hide a song, it is because I do not want to hear it ever again and I am extremely annoyed at Spotify when I am forced to.

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 🙂
