Select multiple songs in playlists (Mobile app)

It would be great if you could go into a playlist and begin deleting songs by selecting multiple ones and then deleting all at the same time. As of now you have to >edit>( - )>delete. It's slow and tedious. Just a suggestion.

Absolutely yes. it's also annoying to create playlists from the app because of the same reason!! Kudos :)

Not just in the mobile app but on the web player too!!!

I was about to make this as a new idea, but glad someone else has thought the same. In other similar services (or even apps like Gmail) you can long-press on an item to highlight it, which then activates multiple selection and can quick tap on additional items to select more, then allows any common actions like delete, from a menu like the one with the three dots in Android.

 

I can't believe this idea has been floating since a year ago without more kudos. I honestly think if I could do multiple deletes from the mobile app I might never need the desktop app - which would be my preference for the way I use the service. Maybe this is just less important for folks who spend equal time listening both on desktop and mobile.
