[Mobile] Remove current Song from Playlist

Hi

 

This is a usability improvement for the Mobile devices. Sometimes I want to remove songs from a playlist. This is currently quite a long task to perform on the mobile device.

 

  1. I first have to select the right playlist.
  2. Then I have to locate the song, which is not listed alphabetically. They are listed in the order I built the playlist with the oldest first and newest last.Some of my playlists have up to 900 songs in them and scrolling slowly can be difficult and timeconsuming.
  3. Then click on the "pencil" icon and  delete the track I don't want.

I think it would be a better user experience if we could delete songs as easy as it is to add them to a playlist. 

 

So here's a suggestion for the mobile app, look there's even a space for it on the info page! :smileylol:

 

Spotify Delete Track Idea

 

Cheers

UPDATE 3 June 2017

I have been contacted by user eviljojo22 who has developed a Plugin that creates a playlist named "Remove from Spotify" and every 45 minutes minutes it deletes every song in it and also in every playlist in which that same song appears (which may not be what you want). However, this is an option that may help you before Spotify gets round to providing this very simple function. Good luck (and Thank you EvilJojo22)

Hey Folks, 

 

Since 2012, there are a couple of features that speed up removing songs from playlists. 

 

On Android, you can find tracks quickly by clicking the three dot menu in the playlist and heading to the 'Find in Playlist' option - this will bring a search bar where you can type the name of the song or artist. On iPhone, you can find the search bar by pulling down on the Playlist screen. Once you've found the track, you can click the three dots next to the song and click 'Remove from this Playlist' - even whilst the track is playing. The song will continue, but be removed from the playlist.

From the playlist menu you can also sort your playlist by Title, Recently Added, Artist, Album or Custom. 

 

We'll keep this idea open and if there are any updates about adding a remove song button to the menu on the 'Now Playing View', we'll post them here. 

 

Thanks!

STOP USING A PAYED ACCOUNT !

Then you'll at least have a "don't like" button, which won't play the track again. ;). Afterwards you can find the tracks grated out and finally remove them scrolling through the list.

And you can give up the reason why you stopped being a paying member ;)

Ridiculous that you cannot do this easily. Yet another simple feature that Spotify doesn’t have....

Annoying this isn't possible

I really don't understand how this is not a standard option. I'm playing my own playlist and I don't like the song anymore, I would expect an option in the menu to remove this song from the playlist that's playing.

I'm so **bleep**ing close to deleting my spotify over this.. Deleting a song from a playlist is one of the most frustrating things about spotify. This is the top of my list of things to change/add. 

 

Iv had entire playlists made annoying over a few songs and trying to locate them by name on the android app takes FOREVER.  Why can't I just delete a song from the playlist as I'm hearing it??

AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! This is the MOST FRUSTRATING task in Spotify, and I don't blame ANYONE for wanting to uninstall Spotify for this very reason. I have considered doing this on multiple occasions. Not only is it overly complicated, it is just plain dangerous to even attempt this while driving (while adding a song is so simple) and it just wears away at your sanity for anyone who curates their playlists on a regular basis.

 

THIS IS THE ONE REASON I HAVE STOPPED RECOMMENDING SPOTIFY TO OTHERS. They just do not listen to user requests. To the point of just being jerks about it.

I have the same proposal. Please Spotify make an easy way to remove a song from a playlist while listening to it (on Android)! Right now, it is not even listed as an option when you click settings while the song is playing.

See pictureScreenshot_20190616-204407.jpgNo way to remove the current song from the playlist I am listening to......
