The competition in the streaming world is fierce, both in video and audio. That’s why platforms keep releasing new things. However, it is Spotify’s turn to get the feature that allows you to block other users. For many years it has been possible for users to interact with one another without restriction. This way we could follow other people, including see playlists, what they heard. Now the blocks have arrived. This way we can block the people on Spotify that we don’t want to share information with.
Spotify: Finally it is possible to block other users!
The new feature is coming this week, and like so many others, it is happening in stages. That is, if it hasn’t appeared to you yet, it will appear in the next few days.
It’s easy to complete.
First, launch the Spotify app on your device. Then go to the user profile you want to block. Then click on the menu accessible through the three dots. Finally, click on Block.
To unlock someone, just repeat the steps above and select Unlock when you get to the last step.
Before that it was already possible to block someone, but it was necessary to contact Spotify support. Everything is very simple now.
Other platforms have a similar system.
If this novelty on Spotify has only just hit Apple Music, it has been around for a long time. However, to block someone we just need to visit that person’s profile, hit the three-dot menu and hit the block button. However, on this platform it is also possible to make our profile private. This way, only approved users can see our playlists and the songs we are listening to.
However, there is one thing that Spotify has that Apple Music doesn’t. We can only block artists on the green platform. Something that doesn’t happen in the huge apple system.
