For example, I8217;m a massive emo fan, but the mere presence of Panic! At The Disco in a playlist is enough to have my formerly jet black, straightened fringe swinging towards the skip button in a fit of boyish angst.
In a new update, the company is giving music lovers the opportunity to hide the songs they don8217;t like. Effectively, Spotify is making those 8216;perfect playlists8217; a little more perfect for you.
The new feature is exclusive to the iOS and Android apps for now, but once you8217;ve hidden the songs within those apps, they8217;ll no longer offend your ears whenever you access the playlist elsewhere, so long as you8217;re logged into your Spotify Premium account.
That way you can tell the friend who made the playlist for you you really, really did love it and you listen to it all the time. Just don8217;t let them know that you 8216;greyed out8217; half the songs you don8217;t like.
Unfortunately for those enjoying the Spotify Free platform, this feature is not available. It8217;s a win for Spotify Premium customers who8217;ve seen their exclusive benefits gnawed away at, as the company seeks to head off the challenge from Apple Music at the pass.
