How do I delete songs from a playlist?????

Hi there,

 

I can't figure out how to delete songs from one of my playlists. I can't do it on my iphone 6 (I click on the three dots, but I have no option to remove the song). I removed a bunch of songs on my desktop, but they still show up when I play the playlist on my iphone.

 

Please help!

 

Thank you... :)

I think you're pressing the wrong "three dots" -- it's not the ones next to the songs' names - it's the one on the top right corner, which will show  you options like download, edit, become public/secret, delete playlist, EDIT...

Hi @gurdyp,

 

open the playlist, click on the three dots on the top right corner of the screen: red symbols will appear next to each song. Just click on the ones you want to delete :)

Hi,

Yeah, that's it -- I don't see any red symbols.

I only get the options to "save", "add to playlist", etc...

This topic is incredibly silly in that it's a simple implementation and a feature that would save a lot of people hassle and headache in removing songs individually from their playlists. 

 

The removal of a song individually while it's playing on the mobile app (iphone 6) IS available, but only for 'songs' in the checkmarked category. WHY!!!!!!!!!! Why not add the removal feature to ALL playlists while the song is playing? It would make cleaning up playlists to much easier.

 

Please! Implement!

That's definitely an option, and one I wasn't aware of and will come in use for small-scale playlists. Thank you for enlightening me!

 

But what do you recommend for playlists with 3,000+ songs? 

 

The feature I want is to simply delete a song as it comes up while it's playing (mobile app, iphone 6) I did check to see if that option you recommended worked by even further going into a song as it's playing, upper right hand corner, edit feature, and yet no go.

 

Been hoping to find the answer to this for some time! Thanks everyone in advance for your help!

Hey @floralux11, unfortunately at present on iOS, there's no quick method for removing mass numbers of tracks from a playlist.

Best option would be to jump onto a desktop if you can and that way, you can highlight multiple tracks to delete at once.

Thank you  for the solution. Don't get me wrong, I like much about Spotify and use it a lot. Maybe that is why it annoys the cr*p out of me when such a basic funtion as editing a playlist is either unavailable or extremely well hidden, both on ios and os x.
