how to dislike a spotify song

Spotify can't dislike song now! Not so long ago I could have sworn that the "song radio" had like/dislike buttons - find a song, click the three dots and select "Go to Song Radio" and start playing and on either side of the next/previous track buttons was a thumbs up/thumbs down to "improve" the station. I just noticed that these options are gone (on both desktop and Android) and would like to know where they went. - - Spotify User from Reddit

Many Spotify users have reported that they can not find a dislike button on the Spotify app anymore. Spotify boasts to bring the best customization features to listeners, but apparently they fail on this one. Is there still a way to hide a song on Spotify when you're not into it? Yes.

In the following parts, you'll learn several ways to dislike Spotify songs and get the best listening experience.

How to Block A Song on Spotify

In this part, I'm going to show you how to hide or dislike songs you don't want to listen to in the future.

1. Dislike Songs on Discover Weekly & Release Radar

No matter you're a free or Premium user, you can dislike songs on your Discover Weekly and Release Radar feeds.

When you find a song that doesn't fit your taste, you can hover the mouse on the song and then you'll see a dislike button. Click on it and then click "I don't like this song". Then the song will not appear in your feed anymore. This also can help Spotify learn your music taste and recommend more songs you'll possibly like.

2. Hide Unwanted Songs in Playlists & Radio Stations

If you're a Spotify Premium user, when you are streaming songs from a public playlist or song radio station, you can hide the song you don't want.

To hide Spotify songs:

1. Open Spotify mobile app on your phone.

2. Go to a public playlist or radio station.

3. Tap the three dots next to the song you want to hide.

4. Tap Hide this song from the pop-up menu. Once hidden, the song will gray out.

3. Mute Artists to Filter Out Disliked Songs

If you don't want to play songs from any specific artist, you can exclude their songs by muting the artists. Then no song from these artists will appear on your recommendations or radio.

To mute an artist:

1. Open Spotify mobile app on your phone.

2. Go to the artist page.

3. Tap the three dots on the upper right corner and then choose Don't play this.
