Spotify Now Allows You To Block Artistes You Hate To Hear

However, it's only available to selected app users for now.

Can I get a "hallelujah" because Spotify is set to roll out the ability for users to mute or "block" artistes they don't want to hear

The feature was originally set to roll out in 2017, reported Mashable Southeast Asia, but the service decided against releasing it following "serious consideration".

Currently, only a selected number of app users will be able to test out the new feature

A quick check on the desktop app found that the feature was not available.

By turning on the feature, it would allow users to block particular artists from being included in playlists, libraries, charts, and radio stations.

However, the "block" will not apply to tracks which the artiste is featured on.

If you're one of the lucky ones, here's how you can start blocking artistes.

Step 1: Head to the "Artist" page and select the "..." button on the top right corner

A special example for all exasperated parents.

Step 2: Look for the "Don't play this artist" option and tap it!

Step 3: Enjoy your stress-free music streaming experience :p
