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!

I used to have a dislike button as well (about a year ago), but recently I’ve noticed that their is no dislike button. There is however a “Do Not Play” it’s found by clicking the three dot bar by a song, album, or artist. Or, it’s also available on the right side next to the forward skip screen. Hope this helps.

My daily mixes tend to have some songs that are simply unlike the rest so usually end up disliking a fair few, shame that it’s gone

I just downloaded the app yesterday, and neither the app (Android) nor the web player have any sort of dislike button anywhere that I can find.  There's a like button ... but not dislike!!  And being fresh to the platform, holy **bleep** is it way off on what I want to hear.  

 

Really hard to train it without an option to tell it to stop playing this **bleep** and never let my ears suffer it again.  The only option I can get to a a report explicit content link, and that's not right.  If I can't find a fix for this, it could be my first and last month on Spotify.

 

Even Google Play Music has this really simple concept right.  GOOGLE!!  I need to find something to replace GPM, since their YouTube Music app that will be replacing it is even worse ... but at this rate, it isn't going to be Spotify.

I also have this problem . I used this Button to  add a song on "liked from radio" playlist quite easily , now I have to go through a long way of options , and another really long list  o playlists !!!! This is really frustrating. Please add this gain . The "love " button functionality is very different . It adds the song on library That has a few thousand songs in there with very different genres

Whoever had the bright ideea to take out that button missed the point of the radio.

Because of the lack of that button, it feels that the radio feature has been overwhelmed by songs I distained.

Are you **bleep**ing serious? How can you have the idiotic idea to remove the dislike button? How the **bleep** am I going to tell the learning algorithm of Spotify when I hate a song so that the algorithm learns from my taste, without a ban button? What the heck are you guys doing? Whoeever had the idea to remove the dislike button needs to be FIRED. Do you want to go the way of Last FM which once was the greatest music service on Earth until they started doing idiotic things like removing the ban button and stuff. And now they are, you guessed it, DEAD

Spotify, stop ignoring these 'dislike' button suggestions. 
It is clear we want this feature available on all media within Spotify. 

I'm sick of seeing these suggestions getting closed either to a 'similar' suggestion (which is NOT the same), or referred to a suggestion that was made years ago. 

 

It's simple.

If we hear something we don't like, we don't want to hear it again. 

Doesn't this help your algorithm anyway? 

Keep your customers happy, or else we'll just jump ship.

I can't believe it.

 

Even if after searching around in the entire user interface I do happen to find that one desolate ban button somewhere, it  blᴏᴏdy doesn't work:

We users need to be able to tell your AI when it proposes AWFUL music to us that we never want to hear or see in any playlist, suggestion or radio anymore!

 

GIVE US THAT BAN BUTTON ON EVERY STUFFING SONG, DAMMIT
