While Spotify is primarily a music streaming platform, it also offers up some social features such as a friend’s list. This basically lets you see what the person is listening to, visit their page, and also check out any public playlists they might have created. However, some users do not necessarily want these social features and some have even encountered harassment on it.

The good news is that according to a report from The Verge, it appears that Spotify has finally allowed users to block other users with ease. All users need to do is go to that person’s profile and block them, and do the same if they want to unblock them later. Blocking a user pretty much puts a stop to all the social features we mentioned above.

According to a company spokesperson in a statement emailed to the publication, “At Spotify, we’re committed to delivering the best possible listening experience to our users. Privacy is something that is, and always will be, enormously important to us and our block feature, which gives users more control, is the latest step towards that commitment.”

This is actually a pretty big deal because prior to this, users had to reach out to customer support in order to request a user to be blocked, which is hardly ideal. Spotify did state that this was something they would look into back in 2018, and it looks like the feature is finally here.
