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...

It looks a bit different really...

 

Can you please attach a screen shot of the About page (in Settings, the gear icon)?

Hey @azil_26

 

That's definetely not Spotify. I suggest you go to the App Store and download SPOTIFY MUSIC, it should be the first result when you start typing Spotify on the search bar.

It says Spotify Premium...oh well it's odd if it's not a spotify since I have an account. Anyway, thank you for all the replies. 🙂

Maybe it's an app that connects to your Spotify account, like a playlist manager.

 

Anyway, feel free to ask us any other questions. And please don't forget to add likes to the useful replies 🙂

Hi @azil_26, what are you playing from in this instance? That doesn't seem to look like a screenshot from Spotify (unless I'm mistaken and that's a new feature I'm not aware of).

Hi! That's A screenshot of spotify. I don't know either why I don't have that 3 dots on the upper right corner were I can delete/edit songs in my playlist. I just downloaded this app last december.

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!

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.

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!

Hi I agree with Dara.
This annoys me so much I'm almost at the point of cancelling my premium membership and try another app.
It's f#cking annoying if I'm using Spotify on my phone and can't delete one song quickly from a huge playlist. I basically have to scroll the whole darn list or first search it....
Aarhhghhh! Sorry

I cannot believe that in the menu of the playing song you can add to playlist but you cannot remove from current playlist. Is there any way to sign some petition to developers?

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.
