How to dislike a song on Spotify


Liking or disliking is a fairly common feature, however, a traditional dislike feature doesn’t exist on Spotify. Spotify has rolled out a new feature that lets its Premium users hide songs that they do not want to hear within a playlist. Tap the hide button, and it'll hide that song from showing up in that particular album, playlist, or station future. Additionally, if you search for an artist on the Search page, you can also tap the three dots on the artist page and then tap 'Don't play this artist.’ This functions a bit differently than hiding songs, it will block the artist’s song from all playlists/stations instead of hiding it from a specific one.


How to hide songs in personalized playlists?

The Hide Song feature doesn’t exist on Spotify’s web player or desktop apps. It only works on Spotify for Android and iOS. And this feature is available only on personalized playlists such as Discover Weekly or Daily Mixes. But it's not available in regular playlists.

On the iOS app, you should tap the three dots at the top-right of the screen, then tap “Hide song”. On Android, the '⊖' icon appears on the music player. When you listen through the playlist, then the hidden song will always be automatically skipped. If you change your mind, you can tap on the Home button then on the Settings button. Under Playback, switch Show unplayable songs on. Now, go back to the playlist and tap on the Unhide button to unhide the song.


How to block an artist’s work?

You can block an artist's work by visiting their profile on your iOS and Android, clicking the three-dot menu icon on the top right, and selecting “Don't play this artist.” From there, you will be returned to the artist's home page and will receive a message that says, "Ok, we won't play music from this artist..." After that, you won't encounter them in any playlists or radio stations.

You can turn off the feature at any point by returning to the artist's home page, clicking on the "..." button on the top right corner and selecting the "Remove" button from the subsequent menu.
