[All Platforms][Playlists] Skip and remove from playlist

I often play music from my playlists on both the desktop app and the mobile app. However, it is currently really long winded to delete tracks from them. This means that playlists become stale and contain tracks I have gotten tired of. Ideally i’d Like to click a ‘skip and remove’ button which deletes the current track from my playlist and skips to the next one. 

Because of this limitation I often still return to my iTunes music to manage my playlists instead which are far easier to modify.

I think either of these ideas would be really good for Spotify to implement.

This would be easy to use from the ellipsis menu in the currently playing song. This would help me when crafting playlists on android.

In my opinion to implement this feature, I would suggest having a switch placed somewhere on the screen to indicate that if this switch is on and you skip this song, it will be deleted without asking further. Also in addition to this, it would be implied that there must be a trash tab in the Your Library section.

 

This is all down to design and it cannot simply be added or it will look ugly, complicated, or annoying if the switch is not user-friendly.

Today my playlists are not what they should be, because, yes, it is too complicated to remove a song from a playlist.

 

I think the first thing to do would be to change the way we add a song to a playlist.

After clicking on "Add to playlist" we should be able to tick AND untick the playlists we choose to contain the song.

Love this idea! Playlist editing on Spotify is so much more tedious than it needs to be. Please consider adding a vote to my idea: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Idea-Submissions/All-Platforms-Playlists-quot-Add-to-Playlist-quot-...
