Remove from recently played

My Question or Issue

Since the recent update, it seems the option to remove items from the 'recently played' list has been removed.  Was this intentional?  Really all I want to do is make sure stuff that other people are playing (kids, really) doesn't influence my recommendations.

Re: Remove from recently played


Yes, I just noticed the "remove from recently played" option is gone. I have a family account and tried deleting songs I accidentally played on my personal account. It's the first time in months I forgot to switch to my toddler's account, and KidzShite is back hard and strong in my song list. (Side note: switching between accounts is cumb-er-some. I have to log out and log back in which take A LOT of clicks on my app: navigating to the home screen, clicking the settings icon, scrolling to the bottom of the page, logging out, logging in... Why is there no toggle-between-accounts option, especially for family accounts?)


Please, for the love of my stream: (1) restore "remove from recently played" and (2) add a feature to remove a more robust selection of songs.  All the other threads I found over the past year about removing songs have replies from Spotify reps saying something along the lines of "users can correct the algorithm by listening to more songs we they like" -- this is not an adequate solution.

Not applicable
Deleting your accounts is the best way to do, unfortunately. Developers refuse to add it.
