Remove Duplicates within the Playlist

We should be able to right click a playlist and have the option to delete duplicates of songs added etc without having to go looking through that playlist to delete all the duplicates ?

I do think this is  a good idea, however, there should be a notification or selection box of what is and isn't to be deleted. 

There are times when I add a track more than once so that there is a higher probability of it being played.

Great idea and I cannot believe such a feature is not available!

+1 to this feature

I think earlier when I was adding the song for the second time to the same playlist, I would get a message "this song is already in that playlist", but it is no longer the behavior unfortunately.

Hi !

It seems that implementation that prevents duplicates is not working 100% (anymore). So this feature would be very welcome.

I own playlist for about 2 years now and this month I tried to update it (by adding some new entries from already existing artists and some new). When I added already existing song it was added. But when I tried to add that song again, I got "duplicates warning". So as you see it is working for new entries, but somehow ignores old ones. This is happening on Desktop application for Mac.

Honestly how many people need to keep requesting this feature before Spotify ACTUALLY take action??!?? What on earth do their dev team do all day? Been next to no issues addressed over the last few years I have been using it. Still don't even have a way to instantly delete the track playing from a playlist on mobile ...instead they expect us to trawl through thousands of tracks in aplayliust to locate and delete it manually. Get your act together Spotify FFS!.
