Recently played artists.





Devicei Phone

(iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy 9, Macbook Pro late 2016)

Operating System

(iOS 10, Android Oreo, Windows 10,etc.)


Can Recently played artists in my profile show my liked songs saved in my library and NOT songs by said artist that Spotify says is recommended/popular? I have liked songs for a reason so they can be quickly and easily accessed. My library is now based on recommended artists and not recently played as I had become very comfortable with. I do not prefer playlists and prefer rotating through recently played artists for a time then move on to others. Any suggestions?

Hi there @tconshay,

thanks for reaching out about this !


The "Recently Played" is part of the app nature and built.

Therefore, you will not be able to remove it completely or change it with another section from the tabs you see.


However, you can remove contents from the "Recently Played" section by doing the following:

  1. Open the Spotify Desktop App
  2. Enter the Recently Played section
  3. Hover the mouse cursor over the content you wish to remove
  4. Find the three-dots menu on the right of the content image
  5. Select Remove From Recently Played

I hope this shed some light.

Let me know if you have any further questions 🙂
