Re: How to delete songs from a playlist

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

You should be able to do this easily on both platforms. 

 

On mac, click on the track (or highlight the tracks) on the playlist and then press the "Del" key on your keyboard. Alternatively you can right click on the track and select "Delete".

 

On iOS, just open the playlist, open up the options (three dots at the top) and you'll be able to edit your playlist. Remove songs by pressing the red symbol next to them.

Re: How to delete songs from a playlist

Hai Peter,

Ime Jerome',

With me it doesnt works, Icannt find OPTIONS, no three dots on top.

I have the unlimited version, is that perhaps the raison??

 

Is there anywhere a user-instruction??

Re: How to delete songs from a playlist

I "subscribed" to a playlist that was already set up on Spotify.  There are a few songs on it that I can't stand and I want to delete them from my devices, but "delete" is not an option that I can find.  If I select on the playlist and then click on the "three dots" at the top, the only options it gives me are 1)Start Playlist Radio or 2)Share Playlist.  There is no option to Delete a song.

 

If I am in the main menu that lists all of my playlists and I click on Edit, I have the option of deleting the entire playlist.  But I don't want to delete the whole thing, just a few of the songs.

 

Can I do that?

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

The sort answer is no, you are not allowed to edit any playlist which does not belong to you, unless it is marked as collaborative. If you wish to edit the playlist, you need to copy the tracks into a new playlists of your own and then make the changes you wish.

Re: How to delete songs from a playlist

On one of my playlists, playing on iPhone, is there anyway to conveniently dletete a song from that playlist?  There's a way to add a song to playlist, but not delete, I think.  A very major flaw with Spotify, unless I am missing something?  Seems I have to somehow remember the track, go home to my computer, select the track and "delete from playlist"  STUPID

Re: How to delete songs from a playlist

You can delete a track on iOS, from playlist view click on the "..." in the top right corner of the app, then press "Edit" then that will give you a remove button on each of the tracks on the playlist ;)
