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...

I'm in Discover Weekly playlist which I have downloaded.  I click the three dots at the top right and I do not get any edit. I get stop following, downloa, add to queue, share and go to radio.  There is no edit offered.  This means I can't see a way of removing from the playlist songs I really don't like.  I'm sure there's a solution to this.

When I search for music to add to my playlists. I often add albulms I have never heard of by Artists I might like. It is mindnumbing that while playing back my playist I HAVE NO OPTION TO DELETE THE TRACK I DONT LIKE! Please Add Delete from Cue and Delete from Playlist options on the Right click menu! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey @vacuatus,

 

Actually you can delete any song you want when you're playing albums and playlists. On the main screen (big image from the artist), just tap the icon on the top right corner and you'll be able to change the songs order as well as deleting them.

 

But if you're talking about the desktop app (we are in the iOS section), just click on the icon besides the volume control (bottom right corner) and you'll see your Queue, which you can manage the way you want 🙂

This worked. Unfortunately the only reason I wanted to delete an album was because it would not download, and I was continually left wt the message downloading which I'm sure drained battery life. It wasn't like it was an artist obsessed wt sound quality. I'd understand if it was Neil Young, but Edie Brickell & Steve Martin?

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 🙂

I see the opions download. edit, rename, make secret, make colabrative and delete playlist, but absolutely no opions or red dots to delete individual songs. I even tried to delete playlist, because spotify is taking far to much space on my device. I thought if I could I could just download a smaller playlist. I need space on my device, and if spotify doesn't give me thaat option, when my three month trial is over, I'm simply going to discontinue service.

Hey @gr33nmind,

 

When you choose the Edit option, you'll see the red dots appear and will be able to delete individual songs.

Hi,

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

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

Top 3 right dots then click EDIT to reveal the red delete dots. Boom!

Yes got it.   The ellipses (3 dots) at the top provided the options to remove individual songs in the playlist.

Hey @grobennett,

 

You might be trying it on a playlist that was not created by you. We can only edit playlists that we create.

Hi @azil_26,

 

On mobile, Free users get ad-supported, shuffle-only access on compatible devices. This means:

  • You can’t stream specific songs on demand, and you’re only able to skip a track 6 times per hour.
  • Sometimes you'll hear a mix of similar tracks from other artists to what you're playing.

Just head to any playlist, album, or artist page and press SHUFFLE PLAY. Your music will begin playing right away.

Tip: For even more awesome features on your mobile phone, and unlimited streaming with no ad interruption or skip limits, try Spotify Premium!

Oh so you're saying that Deleting songs in playlist is only available if you are a monthly subscriber right?

Hey @azil_26,

 

No, I didn't say that. If you create a playlist you can delete songs in it, even if you are a Free user 🙂

 

Let me know if you have any other questions.

That's my only concern actually...looks like mine is different since I don't have that options to delete/edit songs in my playlist. 😞
