I think it would be great to add the ability to edit your recently played section. I feel very restricted when searching music and other users playlists when I can’t freely edit my recently played. Searching for certain songs or versions of songs caused my recently played to become cluttered with stuff I’m not actually interested in. I loved being able to edit my recently played section before this current update and felt much more free to search and explore music. Please bring that feature back.
