My Question or Issue

If you right-click on the song that is playing at the moment, the option "Remove from this playlist" pops up. If you choose to click on it, nothing happens.

 

How To Reproduce

  1. Play a playlist you can edit
  2. Right-click the song-cover of the song playing
  3. Click on "Remove from this playlist"
  4. See that the song is still in the playlist

Hey there @desvaters

 

Thanks for getting in touch about this.

 

Would you mind trying if this is also happening on a different PC as well?

 

Additionally, could you send us a screen recording of the issue happening so we can take a closer look?

 

Lastly, could you let us know the exact make/model, operating system and Spotify version of your device?

 

We'll be on the lookout for your reply.

I asked my friends and they tried it out as well, same problem for them.

I already attached a screen recording in form of a .gif in my original post, I think you can clearly see the issue happening there.

Hi @desvaters

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

Just to confirm, have you made sure to perform a clean reinstall of the app by following these steps? This is often an overlooked step, but it can be helpful to get rid of any corrupted files that might be causing trouble. 

 

Also, could you let us know if you've noticed the same behavior in the web player? 

 

Keep us posted.

Hi @Novy,

 

I tried a clean reinstall, but that didn't fix the problem.

 

The problem is not occurring in the web player.

 

Best regards!

Hey again @desvaters,

 

Thanks for trying and keeping us posted.

 

We've gone ahead and reported this to the right teams. We can't commit to a timeframe for when or if this will be fixed. In the meantime, you should be able to remove a song from a playlist not only by right-clicking on the name of the song in the playlist itself, but also in the name of the song in the Now Playing bar, instead of the album artwork.

 

Also, make sure to keep the app updated.

 

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

 

Cheers 🙂
