Spotify has today introduced the ability to hide songs users don’t want to hear in their favourite playlists, giving its subscribers more control over what they listen to, The Verge is reporting.
The feature, however, is only available to Spotify Premium users on iOS and Android apps.
“Subscribers can now hide tracks on playlists, meaning if there’s one song they hate, they can plan to skip over it before the playlist ever reaches it. They can hide it by going into the “context menu” on the song and selecting “hide song.” Tracks can always be unhidden if listeners change their minds.”
Even though it’s a small new feature, the music streaming giant seems to be continuing to improve its Premium product. Since Spotify’s main source of revenue is subscribers paying for its paid tier in addition to advertisers, even tiny updates like this can push people into paying to listen.
Spotify is also trying to switch listeners to its platform by offering exclusive podcasts and video content to accompany album releases.
