No more Justin Beiber in your playlist.
Don’t want Justin Beiber frequently popping up in your Spotify playlist? You’re in luck then. Spotify has introduced a new feature in its mobile app that lets you block an artist you no longer want to hear. A “Don’t play this artist” feature appeared in the latest version of the Spotify app for iOS and Android. Though there has not been any official comment from the company itself the feature is present nonetheless.
The feature can be found in the artist’s page in the app. For using the feature you will have to head over to an artist’s page, then click on the three dots button in the top right corner. An option overlay will appear with ‘Don’t Play This’ will appear and when you click on the button a small popup will appear at the bottom of the page with ‘Ok we won’t play this again’. To unblock you can simply follow the above mentioned steps only this time in place of ‘Don’t Play This’ it will say ‘Allow to Play This’.
Spotify previously tried to do this but revoked its decisions after backlash from musicians and record labels. But with the feature Spotify will keep its hands clean and still provide user with option to choose on their own. Well played Spotify.
