My Question or Issue

Every time I open the Spotify app it seems the home screen is constantly changing, by adding or taking away content. For weeks I was stuck with a Good Morning banner with 4 albums or playlists that I had listened to but could never change and it took forever to find my recently played by scrolling down. This I did not like. Then I got my recently played to be presented at the top of my home screen which was fantastic. This was the best. Now my banner says Listen if You Watched...Elvis with a bunch of podcasts that I do not want. Now it is stuck there and I cannot find my recently played at all anywhere. Even when I scrolled all the way down the app I was still getting recommended podcasts and albums that I do not want at all. This is the absolute worst.

The whole purpose of changing to a paid subscription was to get rid of advertisements. How can I get rid of these podcasts and albums that I do not want and just get my recently played albums and playlists back?

Hey there @oceanlights


Thanks for reaching out about this and welcome to the Community.


The content shown in the Home screen of the app often varies. It shows music and podcasts that the app thinks you might like based on different factors, such as your listening habits and region. 


Remember that you can easily find your recently played content in the Recently played section, by tapping on the clock icon in the upper right corner of the Home screen of the app.

Why should we have to press three buttons to get to our recently played albums and playlists when it used to be at a one button feature? You are literally making enjoying your app harder and the worst part, you don't seem to care. I think they put it best when they said we paid for premium premium to avoid ads but that's all the homepage is now

The new interface is horrible and not helpful.  Having recently played lists at top, then "mixes for you", recently played, new music, new podcasts, etc that we can swipe left was super fast and easy.  now I am essentially stuck with my library or as stated below, scrolling through a list of small titled recommendations that I don't want or don't interest me. 


If there isn't an option to change this in the next two months or a way to customize the UI (which you should be the default), I will be canceling my subscription and finding a new service

Just cancel. The fact they think it’s ok to do half baked experiments on paying customers shows the company is rotten.
