Create a "unified play history" that consolidates history from phone, tablet, laptop, etc., so that you have a real history of your listening on Spotify.
This was previously suggested and did not receive enough "kudos" and was recently made an "inactive idea". But I'm surprised it isn't already a standard feature.

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions on this one!
You'll be happy to know that the Recently played destination on mobile now reflects your listening history across all devices. There's more info here.
Right now, it’s available only on Android and iOS, but we’ll check back here with an update, should this change in the future.
Happy listening 🎶
I only hope JohnnyP the original poster is still alive to see his suggestion finally implemented.
"Recent searches" should of course sync as well, but doesn't. I'm the same person, regardless of device! Please!
I love the feature. But it's only available in the mobile app. I'm sure that many people, like myself, must be using the desktop/tablet app while working and would love to have this feature there too across all platforms.
Add the ability to see the history from any device on all devices, similar to how YouTube history works.
As one single history breakdown that is. That way, I can see what I have listened to from any device.
Recently Played is too hard to find, not accurate, isolated by devices, and clears seemingly random periods of time.Recently Played should should be in the left sidebar, not an entire mess of my playlists instead. The only ways to get there on PC is the Queue icon in the bottom left or through Library where it's not even the default setting and the icons are in the top right, and then it just tracks what you've played on PC, and I deletes when the app is closed many times. My recent history has huge gaps.On mobile, it's useless because it does the same things as PC when done through the Library method. The ONLY example of how Recently Played should work is on mobile through using the Clock logo in the top right. This is absolutely pathetic, as it would be so easy to merge the recently played regardless of device because it's the SAME account and user. You could also just use the one system that's any good and make the others reflect that.This is a major problem, and you know that if you know your customers. Especially with Spotify Premium, the design and backend is really disappointing. Probably unsubscribing soon.
