Spotify rolls out new artist-muting feature244769

At long last, Spotify subscribers who want to limit their exposure to certain artists now have the ability to mute musicians whose songs makes them cringe, thanks to Spotify’s new artist-muting feature. The new function can be found in the menu bar on each artist’s page. Once the user mutes an artist, the artist’s music will not appear in Spotify’s chart listings, radio channels, autoplay playlists, nor in the streamer’s personal library.

Although the newfound Spotify ability will essentially erase the tracks on which the blocked artist receives primary accreditation from the Spotify user’s app, the mute feature will not similarly remove the artist from tracks on which they are hosted as a featured artist. For example, those who mute Ariana Grande would no longer be pointed to her latest single, “7 Rings” on the platform, but Ariana’s feature on Nicki Minaj‘s “Bed” would still appear on Spotify’s chart listings, radio channels, autoplay playlists, and in the streamer’s personal library, if selected. The feature is currently only available on Spotify’s mobile app.
