How can I clear my recently played?

Visitor

Hi! I was wondering if anyone knew how I can clear my recently played on Spotify. My younger cousins use my phone for songs sometimes and I don’t want them playing some of the music I’m playing. Since the new update I haven’t been able to find where you clear it. I’m on iOS but I can also do desktop:

Hey @GracieEFish, thank you for reaching out to the Community!

Recently played have been moved to the Home tab. It's not possible to remove music from here. Even if you remove them from the desktop version, it won't be removed from your iOS device.

 

Even though Private Sessions will prevent Recently Played Artists from appearing on your profile, it will still appear in the Home tab.

 

If you're not enjoying this feature, I'd recommend starting a new Idea in the Idea's Exchange board here.

 

I hope this helps! If you need help with anything else, just let me know 🙂

Hey folks, 

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community about this.

 

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

These steps will remove the content from your Recently Played.

 

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any more questions.

This doesnt work. The ability to clear your Recently Played list has totally disappeared from iOS and Mac apps. Why has it gone, Spotify??

This is so stupid, what could possibly be The reason NOT to allow simple clearing of recently played? Give the users more control not less going towars none.

You can’t clear it. BUT if you’re just looking to remove a certain something from sight and off the queue completely, just proceed to the end (least recent) of your ‘Recently Played’ list (it will hold up to 30 at a time in the queue) and start playing your choices in the list systematically until you get to the one(s) you want out of sight/removed and play something not in the queue at all and because you reached the threshold for recent, you will bump the unwanted selection from your list.

This seems to be a trend... My account had also been hacked. The user played some pretty vulgar stuff. And I share phone with CHURCH members to show choir new music! Not being able to delete it is UNACCEPTABLE.

Same deal with the account hacking. This feature being discontinued is the silliest thing ever. There's so much rubbish in my history now!
