Just open the playlist, open up the options (three dots at the top) and you'll be able to edit your playlist. Remove songs by pressing the red symbol next to them.

This solution only works when you have only a few songs in a playlist. If you have a playlist with a couple of hundred songs, this solution is simply not achievable, because I can’t find that specific song in such a big playlist.

i here a song on my playlsit with 350 songs.

i dont like that song so i want to remove it. 

i have to open my list hit the 3 dots and then scroll till i find it then remove it

why can i just click it while its playing and remove it?

Indeed, should become easier because 5+ clicks to delete 1 song is cumbersome

I have a Samsung and a laptop but I can not figure out how to delete a song.  I clicked on the 3 dots by the playlist (not by the song) and 'edit' is not an option for me.  All the options are:

-play

-Add to Play Queue

-Rename

-Make Secret

-Share...

-Star Radio

-Copy Spotify URL and

-Delete (as in delet playlist, I tried)

What do I do?

This is ridiculous. I'm listening to a song in a playlist and decided I no longer want it in this playlist. Can't seem to find an easy way.

I agree ! We can't delete a song from a playlist that we are listening ? We have to go on the playlist, search for it and then delete it ?

I can't understand how spotify think about developing their app... It's basic that functionnality !

How do I delete a song from my Playlist from the "now playing" menu. This is needed!

Agreed. it is available on the PC and IPad, why is there no thumbs down or delete option at the phone level?

Just mentioning, with the new update, there is now a way to delete a song from a playlist on the IPhone.  Select the playlist, touch the words "and more" to see the full list of songs, then for that song, hit the ... button.  it has four options, including "Remove from this playlist".

It's been like that for a long time but it doesn't solve the issue for huge play lists as explained.

Did you try again today? I just did on my Galaxy s7 and there is a new option on each individual track. You don't have to find it in the massive playlist. You can delete the song that is currently playing from the playlist. This is what I wanted.

Thanks for the update! It only took Spotify 6 years to fix this easy problem. I guess I won't sell my SPOT stock after all. Maybe someone is actually reading these boards.

Does this completely delete the song? To allow me a little more memory to add more songs?

Here's also a guide to help you delete music from iPhone.

Feel free to check it out.

If you have your iPod set to automatically sync with your iTunes library, then just right-click the song you wish to remove and click "delete" (and click "move to recycling bin" after). Of it goes into cyberspace. If you don't want to permanently delete songs from iPhone, then uncheck it.

If you have your iPod set to manually manage your music, then you will need to plug your iPod into your computer. Then click "Music" under the iPod icon on iTunes (there may be an arrow hiding all the divisions of your iPod, but click it so it faces downwards). When all your songs are displayed, do the same thing I said above. It will no longer be on your iPod, but it will still be on your iTunes.

By removing songs from playlist you don't remove them from device.
