Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

The sort answer is no, you are not allowed to edit any playlist which does not belong to you, unless it is marked as collaborative. If you wish to edit the playlist, you need to copy the tracks into a new playlists of your own and then make the changes you wish.

Hello: @Hatebook

How about this when a song is playing in the Now Playing Window if you double click on the album artwork, with the assumption it is being played from a playlist you created, does this take you to the song in your playlist that way so you can delete it?

How do I delete one song on my playlist? Not the whole list, only one song that I added in error.

I don't think that it works like that. You can swipe to remove it from "Your music" but not the playlist.

In my opinion, the delete function should be available from the "now playing" screen.

I have found the dots and the red button, and "deleted" the songs I don't want. However, for whatever reason, some of the songs I've deleted still play when I listen to my playlist...must be a software glitch with Spotify that they need to address.

The important thing to remember is that when you want to delete a song from a playlist you do NOT click on the three dots next to the SONG. You scroll all the way to the top of the playlist and click on the three dots next to the BEGINNING OF THE PLAYLIST! That will give you the option of editing the entire playlist and delete any songs you wish by tapping on the red button to the left of each dong. Hope this helps!

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

You should be able to do this easily on both platforms. 

 

On mac, click on the track (or highlight the tracks) on the playlist and then press the "Del" key on your keyboard. Alternatively you can right click on the track and select "Delete".

 

On iOS, just open the playlist, open up the options (three dots at the top) and you'll be able to edit your playlist. Remove songs by pressing the red symbol next to them.

I "subscribed" to a playlist that was already set up on Spotify.  There are a few songs on it that I can't stand and I want to delete them from my devices, but "delete" is not an option that I can find.  If I select on the playlist and then click on the "three dots" at the top, the only options it gives me are 1)Start Playlist Radio or 2)Share Playlist.  There is no option to Delete a song.

On one of my playlists, playing on iPhone, is there anyway to conveniently dletete a song from that playlist?  There's a way to add a song to playlist, but not delete, I think.  A very major flaw with Spotify, unless I am missing something?  Seems I have to somehow remember the track, go home to my computer, select the track and "delete from playlist"  STUPID

You can delete a track on iOS, from playlist view click on the "..." in the top right corner of the app, then press "Edit" then that will give you a remove button on each of the tracks on the playlist ;)
