Spotify will soon be rolling out a new feature that will enable users to block others on the platform more easily.
Spotify will now offer city-wise Charts across 16 cities in India. This will help track the most popular songs in each city individually. We wanted to create a destination for fans to see who is trending in their area, and to give artists the opportunity to go deep on all the data and see what music is moving listeners around the world, said Spotify
Every week on Friday, Spotify will update the charts for cities–Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Ernakulam, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Imphal, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Ludhiana, Mumbai, Patna and Pune based on listeners activity in the respective cities.
In addition to that. Spotify is also launching ‘Local Pulse’ charts that will rank the most uniquely popular songs each week in every city, compared to its popularity around the world. This will show off the distinct taste of local listeners in every city.

In another important development, Spotify will soon be rolling out a new feature that will enable users to block others on the platform more easily. Earlier, users had to connect with the customer support to block users on the platform. The new feature will make it easier for users to block.
