Spotify is rolling out a feature that will let you tell it to ignore music in certain playlists when it’s deciding what type of music you like. The feature is called Exclude From Your Taste Profile, and the company is pitching it as a way to keep your recommendations from getting overrun by “songs and artists that don’t fit” your general listening habits. It’s easy to imagine several scenarios where this ability could be useful. Your sleep playlist could end up getting a lot of listen time but may not have the type of music or sounds you want to listen to while you’re awake. It’s a similar story with work playlists, which could be very different from your off-the-clock music tastes. Spotify also says it’ll be useful if you have kids – the feature will let you have a playlist with their music easily accessible without telling the algorithm. The company says you can exclude playlists using its iOS, Android, and desktop apps as well as its web player. To do so, select the playlist, tap the three dots button, and then tap the “Exclude from your taste profile” button.
