[Discover Weekly] Remove certain Songs

Status: Implemented

It would be nice if there was a way to remove a song from the Discover Weekly playlist. Overall, Spotify picks some pretty good songs for the playlist. However, there are always a couple songs I don't like. It would be nice if I could delete the song from the playlist just like I can for any other playlists I put together.

Can we at least find out what's feeding discover weekly? Just because my wife listens to a couple country songs on my phone doesn't mean I want my discover weekly to show me a bunch of country artists now.

 

Maybe a way to up or down vote what's going in here at a minium?

Discover weekly is super, BUT let us remove tracks from it.

Out of nowhere, I get tons of songs in the Dutch language. I never listen to Dutch music nor do I speak or understand it - PLEASE.

Please do this, I'm pretty offended that Spotify thinks I want Marilyn Manson! Maybe there's a reason you haven't seen me listen to him :')

As a workaround, you can use this IFTT applet https://ifttt.com/applets/NFRkZeJu-automatically-create-a-discover-weekly-archive It automatically copies songs from discover weekly to regular playlist you can edit.

It'd be great if there was such an option. I'm ashamed of what I was listening to some years ago. I long deleted them but they show up nevertheless. 😕

You don't have to make the play list editable, if remove make a entry in a database that tells that this listener don't want to hear a selected track it won't show up anymore in that play list. 

Since there often are tracks that I prefer not to listen to I would appreciate that function.

I would like this too.

I don't like the artist Justin Bieber. And yet you put songs of him on Discovery weekly.

Why?

 

And can i edit this playlist now?

What if I want to remove a song because I have already added it to my own playlist? I like the song, but I don't need to hear it again. I don't want to dislike it and I don't want to hype it. Premium users ought to be able to let Spotify know directly how they are using Discover Weekly - so that the lists for them can be improved. For instance, I do not treat Discover Weekly as a playlist (just) to listen to. For me it is research for building my own playlists to listen to. I don't want to see a heavy concentration of artists that Spotify already knows I like. A smattering of their music is good -- but what I want to hear is new artists in the vein of the ones I like - or maybe on some tangent that intersects with their sound. I'm becoming increasingly bored with the Discover Weekly lists I'm getting lately. I wish they would stop sending me so much music they're confident I like and tune up their algorithm(s) to find similar sounds to send me.  [ Please! Thanks! ]
