My Question or Issue

How do I delete an entire queue? I can only remove individual songs and I have a queue of more than 50... It's incredibly annoying and painful.

I tried the hack of removing the next to last song but it doesn't work.
I also try to play new playlists, so the queue can be erased and that doesn't work either.
Please help, I'm desperate.

Play the last song in the queue. There’s no other simple way.

It worked... Thanks a lot....

But I think @spotify should just put a button on the right "Clear Queue"

What I do is I look up for an unplayable album on my region

ex: https://open.spotify.com/album/1BZrhUoHveceCAbxUmMnuE and add the whole song of the album to my playlist

i named it "clear queue"

so whenever you want to clear your whole queue you can just press shuffle play and what look like this:

would look like this after:

hope this is helpful in some ways!

Hi Ivan,

 

Let’s try to be better and not treat users like children.

 

I hate these BS public relations answers from moderators. Quit that **bleep** about constantly striving to improve when people ask simple questions that should have easy answers. 

“Sorry, we really dropped the ball on this one and our team forgot to add a clear entire queue option. You will see it in the next release because it’s a critical feature for mobile users”

 

See how easy that was?

This is the worst, non-intuitive way to do it. I always forget making me hate the I even used the queue. Please make it more obvious. If I stay a while new playlist just blast it! It makes 0 sense to play one song and then return to the old queue when I hit play on an entire list of songs.

Get it together Spotify, this should be a standard feature.  Having to jump through hoops and try other "workarounds" to clear a queue is just bleeping stupid. 

 

Jeez.
