[Queue] Remove an upcoming Track

I'd love the ability to skip an upcoming track. For example, if I'm listening to music, I can go to the Play Queue to see what songs are coming up. I might like the order of upcoming tracks, except for one or two. It would be great if listeners could skip these tracks. If I've added these tracks to the queue, I'm able to remove them, but if they are upcoming unqueued tracks, there's currently no way for me to skip the track except reshuffling (which loses a song order I might be fond of), deleting the actual track from my playist (bad), waiting to manually skip the song when it comes (inconvenient), or queueing all the upcoming tracks and hen removing it from the new queue (also very inconvenient).

 

Another aspect of this I think could be helpful would be adding a "Skip" option in the right-click menu. If I'm on the play queue, it would say "Skip", but I'd be able to achieve the same result by just deleting it from my upcoming tracks in the queue. However, if I am in a playlist, using the delete key actual removes the song from my playlist, which I would not want. In this instance, you just right click a song in the playlist and hit "Skip". If the play order remains the same and you do not change what what playlist you're listening to, the song will be skipped next time it is reached.

 

When a track is skipped, it still appears in its same position in the Play Queue, only grayed out, allowing the user to "Un-Skip" if they choose they would like to listen to the track after all. If the user reshuffles their Play Queue while songs are set to be skipped, the tracks will be reset to normal (not set to Skip). Also, it would be a great addition to this feature if the queued songs were able to be re-ordered among the upcoming tracks.

 

A song set to be skipped would appear in its same position in the Play Queue until the following song begins playing, at which point it would appear as it would disappear, not showing up in the History, as it was not played.

 

Double clicking a track set to be skipped in Play Queue automatically un-skips the track and skips to it, the same as any other track in the Play Queue.

 

NOTE: This is not the same idea as Make entire play queue editable. To be honest, I think that idea is complicated and over-dramatized.

Hello!

 

Your idea was submitted a while ago and unfortunately didn't receive the amount of kudos needed to stay active in the ideas board (100 Kudos per year). 

In order to keep the Ideas Exchange clearer I'll close this idea for now, but this doesn't mean Spotify rejected this idea.

If you think this is an idea which needs to be implemented, you're welcome to post it in a slightly different form.

 

Have a nice day :)

PiotrDab, I definitely see the use in that! However, I feel like sub-choices probably wouldn't settle with Spotify's desire to simplify everything. What if, instead of skip once or skip always, you had the "Skip" option, but you also had the option to deactivate a song, which would grey it out until you reactivate it again? Would that yield the same result?

You're right. I realize my solution would be too complicated to be implemented. But I totally agree that any of the solutions (skip once or always skip) would be useful.

@PiotrDab :: Yes, I think both could be useful, and I think "Skip" and "Decativate" cover both functionalities.

Hi... just re-visiting this as I'm using Spotify increasingly on both my laptop, and now on my new Amazon Fire tablet (formerly Kindle?)
My spin on the idea is different though.... It'd be really great to   'dislike' tracks, so that you can listen to stations repeatedly, or artists, etc... and not have to keep going over to the device to skip tracks that you permanently want to skip.

 

Thanks!!
