Mix suggestions / curated songs suck 0 Recommended Answers 6 Replies 29 Upvotes

I know this has been said numerous times by people, but the suggested music is nothing close to what I would listen to. 

I'm not talking about the (terrible) Hotlist page or top charts or Live Performances, but rather both the songs chosen in Mixtape and "recommended music videos." 

I've followed the advice given everytime this complaint comes up ("use the thumbs up/down buttons to let us know what you like and don't like!"), yet I'm still getting pop music and completely unrelated songs in these spots that should be fine tuned to my preferences.

People who don't like pop are having this stuff just thrown into their mixes and recommendations and it's for sure annoying me. It's bad enough the majority of the other aspects of the service focus on this and not what I enjoy.

Please address the learning algorithm and personalization aspects of YouTube Music before it replaces Google Play Music!

Bump. I am suffering the same problem. I'll let you know if I find something out about it. I thought either likes or the algorithm would help but nope. Neither does.

Same here... System suggests me Turkish music constantly (which I don't listen) all curated lists are Turkish...I want to change at least that but there is no way I can change those suggestions.
I guess I will just return back to Spotify

My latest discovery mix was a HOT GARBAGE. I’ve never seen such a terrible curation.

Same problem here too, iv been patient and used thumbs up and down for 8 months now. I even imported all of my likes from apple music. If this isnt sorted soon ill be going back to apple music. As much as i hate apple their music recommendations are far superior.

I literally downvote 99% of that list, yet the same kind of songs keep coming back. I upvote a very particular style of music, and it just get ignored. I keep trying to feed the algorithm more up/down votes, hoping to discover titles that I could like, but I think I would have a better chance if this was 100% random.
The biggest company, in 2020, pioneer in all things IA, is failing at this simple task ; that was successfully achieved by pandora.com decades ago. How ?
