Hi I actually quite like the redesign but am having a weird issue with recommendations. For some reason I have a huge section of my Home tab taken up for a podcast that I never have heard of or listened to (I don’t use Spotify for podcast nor want to).
It felt really invasive and felt kinda of jarring that Spotify (a friendly user centric company) would foist things in front of me based on no listening data. I understand that it helps OpEx to get people to listen to more podcasts (lower/no licensing costs) but it seems really grubby/greedy to put something in my “home” without asking, is there an option/feature to say “do not recommend?” Or turn the whole podcast side off?
I would appreciate candor if such an affordance does not exist and was decided against. Please do not tell me to go vote on a feature that is neither helpful nor a solution.
thank you! Usually great design and excellent user experience with a little disappointment in what is usually an exceptional recommendation engine.
