Remove items in the 'Recently Played' list permanently

Current implementation (refer to image 1):

Items in "Recently Played" list are hideable via the menu button.

However, these items come back when you reconnect the device to the Internet (or log into Spotify).

In addition, items that are hidden cannot be unhidden until reconnection to the Internet or relogin of Spotify.


Proposed implementation (refer to image 2):

Replace "Hide" funciton with a "Remove" function.

Removes the item permanently (across all devices that is logged into the same account).
"Hide" function can remain as long as there is an option to unhide these items instead of reappearing after reconnecting to the Internet or relogging into Spotify.


Additional idea:

Remove all Played History, does the same as removing an item, but to all items.

Updated with better illustration!


Why can't we have a recently played list in the desktop client? I like that ability on the mobile app and it would be very useful for me at home as well.
