My Question or Issue
Dislike button missing in a lot of playlists in Spotify. Is this a bug? A feature?
This problem is making me crazy, before (like last year) I could like/dislike any song from the majority of playlists Spotify offered me (radios, daily mixes, etc) now it is impossible to dislike...So how is Spotify going to know if I like a song or not?
Only My Release Radar and Discover Weekly keep for now the like/dislike button...
I think this is an important functionality to have in the app. We as users want to configure the platform as we want, so that the offered music as good as possible. If now Spotify is going to begin to have fixed playlists (radio, daily mixes, etc), instead of letting the user change them liking/disliking songs...don't know if I can stay paying...even when I have all my music library in Spotify, and will be difficult to go to other platforms...
Please, please! Return the dislike button to your playlists!

Hey there folks,
Thanks for sharing your experiences with the Community!
The Hide Song button should be visible in the Now playing view in the following playlists: Daily Mixes, Release Radar and Discover weekly, as well as on the Autoplay songs.
The idea behind this is to be able dislike songs from those lists with recommendations, which helps the algorithm to give you songs you might like better in the future.
Don't forget that you can also block artists if you don't want to hear songs from them, by going to their Artist profile and selecting the Don't play this option from the 3-dot menu. Note: You might still hear songs from blocked artists if they are featured in the track of another artist.
Let us know if you have more questions 🙂
