How do I delete all played downloaded podcasts?

I no longer see the option to delete all played downloaded podcasts it used to display now I have to delete them one at a time. I think it was a result of an upgrade, I'm thinking maybe it's been moved?

Hey @cardude7655.

 

Thanks for reaching out about this.

 

Do you happen to have a screenshot of how it used to look? I listen to podcasts on Spotify myself, and I don't remember there being an option to remove all downloads, but I might be wrong.

 

Let me know and I'll look into it :)

Hi

Thanks for the response.

No I don't. I think it used to display when you would scroll all the way
up on your downloaded podcasts list list. But I'm 100% sure it was an
option. Hopefully it's been moved somewhere.

Thanks.

Hey @cardude7655.

 

Thanks for getting back to us with that info.

 

It seems that currently it's only possible to remove each download individually (I don't think the option's been moved anywhere).

 

If you'd like to bring the option back, we suggest you create an idea in the Community about it by going here and seeing if other users feel the same way about it. If the idea gets enough votes, then Spotify might consider implementing it.

 

Hope that helps! Let us know if there's anything else ;)

I cannot understand why such a good feature would be removed. It does not hurt anyone but helps a lot when listening/following many podcasts. Now, I can only remove ALL downloaded files (including music) or go through all of the downloaded podcasts manually and remove them one by one. Such a huge pain..

The podcast I want to delete (all episodes) was never downloaded.  How do I remove it?  It keeps showing up as recently played.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey @Bklyn31NY,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this :)

 

If you're seeing music or podcasts in your recently played that you don't recognise, it's possible that someone else is using your account.

 

Just to be sure, do you mind following the steps in this support article to secure your account? 

 

Keep us posted and let us know if that solves the issue for you! We'll be here in case you need any more help ;)

The podcast (all 40+ episodes) that I want to delete, or at least hide, is
not one I don't recognize and my account is secured. It is not downloaded
- I'd opened and listened to episodes of this podcast and now want to
remove it. Chatted with support, but no solution so far.

Hey @Bklyn31NY,

 

Thanks for clarifying that.

 

Could you send us a screenshot showing how the episodes of this podcast appear? 

 

Once we have that, we'll have a better idea of what's happening and how we can help you out.

 

Thanks! Keep us posted :)
