Clear recently played on home screen?

How do I clear the recently played items that appear on the home screen upon launching the desktop app?

 

If I go into the Recently Played section and remove them there, they still show up on the home screen.

Hey there

 

Thanks for posting in the Community!

 

It looks like this is not currently possible, it's only possible to remove them from Recently played.


If this is something you'd like to see on Spotify I recommend  you check out the ideas area in the Community to share your views!

 

Hope this helps!

Spotify needs to enable users to clear their homepage recently played. The items in my recently played are not even songs I've ever listened to because one of my kids accidently used my account on the TV app one day and now what they listened to is to forever appear on my account homepage?

Hi folks!

 

Thanks for getting in touch about this here in the Community. 

 

Sorry for the delayed reply, we just came across this thread. 

 

Currently, there's no option to clear the Recently played section on the Home screen.

 

However, it looks like other people feel the same way. It's well worth giving it a vote to show your support on this existing idea. 

 

If you have any questions, just let us know 🙂

Hi Eni,

Just as a general rule, ALL features Spotify adds to my home screen should be customizable and/or able to be switched off.

Spotify - what's wrong with you? Current approach to not allow people to remove history is clearly against GDPR in Europe! Are you asking to vote for that feature.. law compliance is something what Spotify should care..
