Desktop clear queue button disappeared?!

Solved!

Desktop clear queue button disappeared?!

My 'clear queue' button has disappeared on desktop – I've updated to the latest version of Spotify. Autoplay is off and I've tried to restart the app. It's a bit frustrating to keep having to skip/change songs with the queue still going every time!

 

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hey there @jasonmw1217,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community.

 

Keep in mind that the clear queue button appears when you actually add items to the queue (next in queue), and not when what's showing is the list of content that will be played next based on what you're currently listening to (next from: or next up), as shown in the screenshot. 

 

 

 

If you don't want new music to keep playing after the playlist you selected ends, you can turn the Autoplay option off. For more info, take a look at this article.

 

If you need a hand with anything else, the Community is here for you.

Hey @DNaga,

 

Thanks for posting in the Community.

 

There should be a button to clear the queue. Do you mind sharing the version number of the app you've installed and posting a screenshot of how the queue looks on your end? This way we can make sure, that it's not "Next from:" we're talking about, but the queue itself.

 

Keep us posted,

 

Cheers!

Hi Eni.  Thanks for the help.  The queue vs. next isn't necessarily intuitive, so you helped clarify that.  I must be overlooking it, but how do I select "accept as solution"?  I don't see that under any of the "drop down" options or as a button anywhere on the page.

Hey @jasonmw1217,

 

Thank you for keeping in contact.

Setting autoplay to off doesn't solve the issue of you not being able to clear queue if you're playing in a radio or playlist. 

really should be able to clear entire queue, not just stuff you've added. frustrating when I'm trying to just listen to one song but an entire (unrelated) playlist from a few days ago is still queued. i don't have the time--or lack of frustration--to manually un-add over 100 songs just because this app is stupidly designed.

Hey @eliothemoth!

 

In the desktop app, you can use Ctrl + A to select all items and press the Delete key on your keyboard to clear any section the queue.

 

If you're interested in other keyboard shortcuts/functionalities, press Ctrl + / in the app to get a full list of all possible combinations.

 

Cheers!

With a long queue in desktop app CTRL + A does not select all queued. Hidden items in queue appears and those have to be deleted over and over batch by batch. Please re add Clear Queue button. 

This!!! I want to be able to clear the entire queue without turning off the repeat function. I'd also like to create my own custom queue but the only way to do that is to create another playlist. I can't just make up a random queue in the spur of the moment. For this purpose I actually created a new playlist which I named queue. 

The clear queue issue, and not being able to use Shuffle without getting a ton of unwanted music (even with autoplay turned off) are going to be the things that makes me quit Spotify.
None of the options mentioned here work... CTRL A does not select all in the queue. The clear queue button only clears the last song added?! This is the most limiting software. I'm guessing this is a large corporation, can usually tell when it's designed by a corporation, not by anyone with passion for the project.
