Removing items from Recently Played history

I would also like it if we had the option to remove our recently played history because sometimes I would listen to someone's playlist, an artist, or one of my own playlists by accident and I don't really listen to the playlist or artist anymore or I already have a song by that artist and it doesn't make sense to keep it in my library or recently played history.

I want to be able to remove Items from my recently played history.

I think this is a basic feature that should be available for a paying customer!


to my allies in this holiest and Most Just crusade

it is with immense sadness that i must report to you

i am giving up

the way my heart sinks every time i receive the new comment email notification

realizing yet another poor spirit has joined us Down Here

i just can't do it anymore

we're on page 34

They've won, how much clearer can it get

i wish you all the happiest of lives

salute and farewell


I would love for this to be added because for months my mom has used my Alexa to listen to her religious music and it’s absolutely not my taste but neither of us were aware that she used my Spotify account for it so now I get recommended songs I have zero interest in as im not religious and the songs aren't my vibe at all🥲


Just to add why this use case is important. My account got hacked and someone gained access to it (a stranger) they listened to a BUNCH of stuff I don't like for about a week. In fact, things I actively dislike. Now it's ruined my "recently played" and a bunch of my "for you" stuff. While I have since secured my account, it would be great to get some support in scenarios like this.


why don't we have this already in the first place?? it's not just a "feature", i think it should have always been available 


Come on Spotify, at least provide your customers with the option to configure which lists are displayed on their home page as part of their account.  We should be able to select whether these managed lists e.g. 'Recently Played', 'Your Shows' etc. are displayed or not.


mac sonoma, iphone, premium plan...


the link in this forum to clear 'recently played'  takes you to an 'access denied' page. yikes.


i want to NOT show recently played items (a list that is, btw, WAY out of date) from the top of the spotify window (on ALL my devices). help! why am i still seeing really-old (& unliked) content there? it's stuck in some past moment...


Spotify is the perfect example of being an industry leader, innovator, and lazy company all at once. It apparently takes 2 years to develop a "remove song" option. I just want to clear songs that Google failed to correctly select but i ask too much from a paid service. Now ive got some random Christmas music and some orchestra something stuck on my main page for the next year.


I'm frankly astonished Spotify doesn't ALREADY have this feature. Please god free me from the repercussions of that one time I dared to try something new🙄 (i.e., the app keeps showing me ~more of what I love~ which is a band I ultimately decided months ago that I didn't like)
