That's just ridiculous.. I wish there was an official explanation from the developers so i could at least understand the decision. It's another basic feature missing in the player. Spoify developers, could you please imagine the following situation: You are DJ at a party and want to seamlessly change the music. Now you are sitting around for half an hour to delete thousands of songs? Are you really music fans or just making fun of us? ^^
as someone has said earlier. play the last song on the queue.
its a workaround. spotify just gets worst over time. when i subscribed it had lyrics. 2 years ago they removed it saying a new function is coming out. think its time to try apple music or google play music.
More and more annoyances like this show up... No real shuffle-button, so Spotify just ends up regurgitating all the songs you have already played lots of times. No button for clearing the queue. Forced sharing of everything you do unless you manually turn it off every friggin time... I don't like apps that blatantly ignore my wishes... AND Spotify ignores design-guidelines set forth in ALL OS'es I've tested their clients... The close-button is for terminating the app... Not for minimizing... That is what the friggin minimize-button is for... How the **bleep** can they get that wrong, and not even add an option to select this behaviour? The Android App has become a hot mess too if you try to find a setting... UN-intuitive with lots of missing stuff, and menus not accessible unless you are on the right screen/page... Breaks all UI/UX guidelines for user friendly UIs... Keeps me looking for options I some times never find... And What good is the playlist-radio when it just comes up with worse clones of my favorites or just plays the songs I know how to find myself? What good is a close button that just minimizes? Even the Chromecast integration sucks on Desktop clients.... Web-player just work on a third of Linux distros, and when it doesn't, it just complains about missing drm... No hint at what packages are needed, or how to fix it, and no help from anyone... More and more reasons show up to find a service that listens to, and help their paying customers... And that don't annoy everyone with WEIRD design that doesn't stick to standards... This SUCKS hard for anyone who ever used a real media player with a big library... I am currently, and will continue looking for alternatives...
Spotify is far from perfect but I agree with @Tyrannicaluncle Spotify does have the best overall experience. I’ve been using Spotify for several years and I’m now back after my third attempt to leave and try something else (mostly Apple Music as I’m 100% iOS / macOS).
May I suggest that if any of you do see problems then don’t rant as some in this and other threads do. Instead do what @Tyrannicaluncle and some of the others have done - provide constructive feedback for the forum and/or to the team.
(Also ranting is bad for your blood pressure and makes you look a bit of a **bleep**)
Thanks @Tyrannicaluncle for this suggestion. I’ll try it :)
If youre having the problem that spotify is playing the songs and looking to clear the quene it could be the problem with how many songs you have. I had less than 15 songs in one playlist and spotify plays random songs to fill the gap. Hope this helps
I'm using on a mac and can't clear the queue at all. Going to switch to soundcloud for my music. Too annoying to listen to the same podcasts over & over & over w/o being able to clear them. Tried every option above and can't clear my hundreds of songs & podcasts from the queue. Tired of listening to the same **bleep** over & over. Subscription cancelled.
You could tap all of the songs you have queued but If that would take to long scroll down to the bottom of you list and press the last song that is queued. It should get rid of all the songs that are above it.
