Spotify’s New Feature Lets You Block Artists (Finally)
Start your celebratory dance moves because Spotify has enabled a feature that will let you block artists you don’t particularly like.
????It’s your party and you play what you want to thanks to the iOS feature called, “don’t play this artist”.
????The Verge reports users will be allowed to block any artist and that means they won’t pop up in playlists, libraries, charts and even radio stations.????Apparently the app was ready to roll this feature out in 2017 but quote “after serious consideration” decided not to.????But now the “don’t play this artist” comes in the midst of the movement to #MuteRKelly, after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.????Mashable reports Spotify did ban his music from their curated playlists back in May of 2018 due to an announced policy not to promote artists connected with hate speech and hateful conduct, but it only produced backslash.
????Now Spotify users can be happy to use this new blocking feature on some not so favorite artists.????Call me crazy but personally they’ll be no more Ed Sheeran for me.??
