[All Platforms] I want complete history of all songs

I want to be able to view all songs I have listened to. I will remember some song I was listening to a few months ago and can't remember the name. I want to be able to see EVERY SONG I HAVE EVER PLAYED. Also being able to delete songs from history that I didn't like which creates suggestions for songs I don't like would be nice. I WANT TO SEE EVERY SONG I HAVE EVER PLAYED. DON'T TELL ME THAT YOU HAVE A HISTORY FEATURE ALREADY. IT'S NOT TRUE. THANK YOU!!!

Yes absolutely. I find the existing 'history' that only shows the history on that one particular device. I don't care what device I happened to listen to something on, that's not important.

Youtube's history is amazing for tracking down that video I remember once watching. It is also useful for deleting something from my history that I played accidentally and don't want influencing future suggestions.

this NEEDS to be a feature.

needs to be a thing and needs to be something in the API as well

It's baffling and very frustrating why Spotify still doesn't have an extensive history feature.

3 months on the iPhone and just last 50 songs on the iMac is just not good enough.

Would love to have this be apart of the development toolkit too! Thanks guys 🙂

...to get back to where you were before more quickly!

 

Whenever I listen to my mix of the week and then click on a song recommendation that was just sent to me and then want to go back to my mix of the week I don't know where I was.

Same with audio plays - if I don't know the track number I have to "listen" to everything again to get back to the right place.

Lastly, it wouldn't be bad to be able to find a song you've recently heard but haven't saved.

Solution: A kind of history, like in a web browser, would be an interesting approach.

So I noticed the song history on android as I was trying to find a song and not having any luck on the desktop client. This was a while ago but I found that the desktop client only showed me albums which defeats the purpose of history entirely. Android I found a longer listing of songs I listen to.
Fast forward a few months I was in the car there was a song on when I got home that I figured I would pick up in the morning. Well in the morning I didn't instead later that evening I ended up playing something else thinking I'll just grab that from my history later and listen to it. Well I don't think it's in my history. That is after I found my history.
I had to do a search online to find out there's 2 history sections on desktop, what user interface insanity!
It also only lists 50 songs, I think that should at least be a minimum of 100 and it would be nice if it also listed the date and time they were played? So if I take the average length of a song I'm gonna round up to 4 minutes Times 50 Songs equals 200m divided by 60m equals 3 1/2 hours. Or if you would prefer 1.5 hours is equivalent to 1 maxed out CD, that would be equivalent to 2.5 CDs. That sir is nothing! As I occasionally have a 1 hour drive or 2 hours round-trip this literally gives me a buffer of only 1.5 hours, and if I play a lot of music somewhere it completely wipes the previous day. I could see somebody sitting down for a music session listening to at least 4 hours or having it on in the background as they go about their day. I would love to see at least a 24 hour history or the bare minimum of 100 songs.

The best solution is to use Stats.fm app to see your comprehensive songs history. Hopefully Spotify will get their act together and give us a proper history feature. At present, it's a total joke.

A playlist with all the songs you have ever heard (or at least 3 times or so).

Listening hours would tell me how much time someone spent listening to a song, a certain artist, an album, a podcast/episode or everything combined.
