SPOTIFY TO ADD ‘BLOCK ARTIST’ FEATURE ?

Posted by

Dont want to hear music form certain artists anymore ? spotify could be about to help…

Spotify is testing a ‘block feature’ – to be released on its iOS app – according to tech news site Thurrott.

This could be bad news for artists and labels who generate significant streaming revenue now from from playlist placements! The new feature will allow users to block an artist from showing up on a personalized playlists  ( such as Discover Weekly ) radio station and chart list

According to Thurrott, the block function can be activated by hitting ‘Don’t play this artist’ on an artist’s page via the three dot menu ( … )

Spotify had previously said they wouldn’t be looking to add such a feature, but the platform has now appeared to have made a U-turn on that decision, and the new feature seems to be available to a selection of beta users – a wider release date is currently unavailable

Spotify current maintain this function “isn’t possible right now”
