Clear Queue??

Somehow my entire song library was added to my queue and I really need a way to clear it. I know how this may be done on PC/Mac but how do I do it on my iOS? Playing a different context/playlist does not work.

I had around 1500 songs queued, but when I logged out and logged back in it emptied my entire queue. Hope this helps!

If you have an iPhone with the spotify app as well as an iPad then you can do this:
1.Make sure they are both on the same wifi network
2. Have the music playing on the iPad
3. Open spotify on the iPhone
- it should pop up and ask if you want to listen on this iPhone or continue listening on the iPad --> Select keep listening on the iPad
4. You should now be able to control the music playing on the iPad from the iPhone
5. Find the "Play Queue" icon in the top right (i think) of the iPhone app and go into the queue.
6. Here you can select and remove tracks from the queue and it will clear it on the iPad.
7. Bob's your uncle! A bit of a pain but ultimately useful :)

Hi there Tremolay, welcome to the Community! That's a bit peculiar - having all of your jams in your queue, but I'll be sure to help you clear your queue so you can enjoy your playlists and albums as normal again.

Unfortunately, I can't find a magic "Clear Queue" button, but there is a clever trick you can do to clear the queue effortlessly. Open up the Queue list and scroll all the way down to the final song with a blue dot. Tap it, and all the queued songs above it will vanish. You can then enjoy that last song, or skip it, and your entire queue will be cleared.

I hope I helped. If this doesn't work, please feel free to reply to this post and someone else might be able to help you! The Community is great for helping others, discovering new music and making new friends. Feel free to explore, and I look forward to seeing you on the forums some time! Good luck with clearing your queue and rock on!
Starting out but ready to make a difference :-)

I feel your pain. After nearly losing my religion and wondering if I should just cancel
Spotify and sign up for iTunes I found the solution that worked for me.
Select the song at the top of your playlist, then hit skip so it goes to the next song. As you do this you should see a number in the top right of your screen counting down for each song you skip through. Once you skip
Through all songs in your queue you should be good to go.
I hope this works for you, good luck!

My goodness..

How stupid is that??? When i play a spotify playlist from Sonos app on my iphone there is an option to clear queue..Spotify people obviously think that one of the most basic options like clear queue is just too much or insignificant.. Many people have requested that already. WAKE UP SPOTIFY! This option should be available sinse day 0.1. My god what are you thinking?? What could be the reason for not this option being available i truly don't understand. Are you serious? I should use tricks like go to the last song of my 1523 songs list and click to play. Yeah! so genious! so handy especially when driving! my god i wonder how much time you guys spent to think something like that. Get serious people and do it by the next update.

This is daft.

 

Utterly daft.

 

After listening to single songs (as opposed to the album I've selected) for about 8 albums in a row I was frustrated enough to google it - I'm glad I'm not the only one.

 

The 'skip to the last song' worked for me, but what a faff.

Ready to cancel this is pathetic. No blue dot must be an older version referenced. No way to just clear or replace the cue. Mind numbing. That paired with the fact theirs no play all at the top and shuffle is so prioritized has me preferring Amazon music or Apple music.

This didn't work. I don't see any blue dot at the last song. I've only noticed this issue this last week, I never had trouble clearing the queue before this.

If I play the last song, it just adds the playlist again to the list and YES, I have shuffle turned off.

This is unbelievable.  Such a basic thing and so hard to do.  Bye bye Spotify premium and hello something intuitive- can anyone advise the best streaming service for similar money?
