But at least on spotify i have this nice option in my weekly discovery!

As you can see there is no option to block the song or artist! Unfortunately! Well ... no worries .. i will stay with Spotify for now!

Great idea, shame it doesn't work. In fact nothing works. Dismiss a song in Flow, it just comes back. No option to dislike artists in Android still. The option is there in Windows but it doesn't cross platforms so you can dislike on Windows and your hates still play on Android.

I really wish I hadn't been so stupid and paid for a year up front so I could go somewhere else!

As no one has bothered to address my first reply to this topic I shall reiterate. This feature does NOT work. Three months after it was announced and after several Android updates the feature is still not present and the Windows version simply doesn't work. I can dislike an artist, hit Flow and after a few songs up they pop. Deezer, your programmers stink at their jobs. If I was this crap at my job I'd get fired!

Look at this pic. I've told Deezer not to recommend some dross called Fifth Harmony. Never heard of them, don't like them. I've got the three dot menu open so you can see they've been disliked and look what is playing at the bottom! It also has the blue dismiss button that I have complained about for months where I have already told Deezer I don't like the song. So, I don't like the artist, I've also disliked the song, so why am I being force fed it??!!

Hi there @simonali

We haven't had other reports like this but we're happy to investigate it. Just before we proceed, could you just make sure that you've cleared your app's cache?
On another note, you said you don't have this on mobile - what version do you have installed?

I meant that I don't have any option to block artists on Android. I'm on Android 9 and Deezer version 6.1.0.89 which is the latest update with the white icon. I clear all data on the app regularly and log back in. Artists I block in the Windows browser play both on the browser and on the phone. This should:

  1. Work in the first place.
  2. Cross the two platforms.
Neither of these happen.

Hi @simonali it looks like the feature is not rolled out to all users I am afraid. I will forward your feedback of course. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Still? After three months?! Why make a big song and dance about it then??? And what determines who gets the feature and who doesn't?

Anyway, enough of the Android farce, what about the Windows artist blocking feature that doesn't work?
Bye Bye, Bruno boring Mars! I loved it!
I was listening the flow and then it started to play an artist that I don't like at all, then I skipped the song. But 2 songs later the same singer started to play again. If we have a dislike button or a option to choose what kind of stuff we don't like to hear it would be a wonderful be cause I think you never listened "FERRUGEM" and "LUAN SANTANA", those guys in my humble opinion, they are A CHEAP AND STINKING CRAP!
