Spotify today rolled out a new feature that lets its Premium users hide songs that they don't want to hear within a playlist. Spotify said this feature is rolling out to users on both the iOS and Android versions of the app (via The Verge).

With the new feature, Premium subscribers can go into any playlist on Spotify, select a song, and choose "hide song" from the context menu. Afterwards, when listening through the playlist, the hidden song will always be automatically skipped.

If you change your mind, you can un-hide songs as well. Spotify is hoping that this small update lets subscribers slightly customize its curated playlists, which can sometimes still offer tracks that they dislike.

Spotify has been rolling out a few updates over the past few weeks. Most recently it began supporting Siri voice controls on the Apple Watch, and last month it introduced a new home screen UI meant to guide users to their favorite content with more ease.

Funny. On my iPhone, none of my Playlists ever have songs I don’t want to listen to. I only put songs on there that I want on that playlist. I thought that was the point.
This is about playlist curated by others. That's the point. ;)

Hide artist would be nice too. There is too much garbage music in some otherwise good playlists.

Not going back to Spotify until they offer lossless compression. Their tracks sound so flat. Using Tidal and good-old-fashioned CDs right now.
Have you selected the high quality setting available to premium users?
i can’t say I have noticed any problem in the sound quality. (I am a musician)
