Accidentally deleted artist from Daily Mix

I just accidentally deleted two of my favourite artists from my favourite Daily Mix and would love to be able to re-add them to that Mix. I spend most of my time listening to that Mix and would be super sad without those two being in it. Is there a way to reverse my fat finger attack?

Hey, all. I accidentally banned Lily Allen's "F*ck You" during a particularly rough work day. I looked through and tried one of the suggestions that was previously posted. It didn't work the way that it seemed to for that person, but I figured it out!

 

Here's what I did:

1. I opened Spotify on both my PC and my phone and connected my phone to the computer via a USB cable.

2. I started playing the Daily Mix that I banned the song/artist from. (I don't think it matters whether you start playing it on your phone or your computer.)

3. I searched for Lily Allen on my phone, and next to "F*ck You," I clicked "Add to Queue." I added it a few times based on what the previous person had suggested.

4. When the song started playing, the heart was grayed out on my PC, so I disconnected my phone and closed the app. AND IT WORKED! I was able to click the heart button on my PC, and the song was added to my Daily Mix!!! I also managed to add a song that I don't think was on there previously using this method.

 

Try it out! I hope it works for you, too.

Hey guys, unfortunately no at this stage, there is no way to undo a ban on an artist. Best suggestion is to simply keep an eye on the artist in case it turns up in another mix!

The feedback on not being able to undo bans has already been passed onto the devs during testing, for the record. You can also look at submitting it as an idea to the Ideas Exchange :)

Thanks for the update. I was so upset when I did it. My daily mix just hasn't been the same since, it's such a shame as I love the Daily Mix feature so much!

If I start liking things on another Daily Mix will the algorithm start to pull that other mix (that is currently nothing like my favourite) towards what I had with the first mix?

Do let us know if this gets updated or if we are able to add an artist to a daily mix to pull it more toward what we are looking for.

I appreciate that there's already an official answer to this, but I also hope the dev team is taking this very seriously. It's a major design flaw and crushes excitement about this otherwise well appreciated feature. I bet it would be very easy to add a button to the UI under settings that resets all user-entered data about the daily mix.

I did the same thing. I was looking for the ... button to 'go to' the album of the song playing, and it instantly removed that artist, then tapped the banner notification which removed the artists permanently. Very unintuitive! There should be an undo button! But while typing this, I went to look for a 'details' button for a daily mix, and noticed when I viewed my dmix, I could pull up to load more songs, and then the artirst I 'removed' reappeared! So hoping they will be in there tomorrow! Spotify! Please add a 'details' button or something with mixes, and allow to view exluded artists etc, and to forget those settings. Or just reset a mix completely!
