Listening History On Mobile Devices

Listening History On Mobile Devices

Is there any way to see my history of what I've played on iOS?  Here's the dealio -- I'm in the car, listening, and a song comes up that I'd like to either thumbs up or down but, of course, I'm driving and can't do it (I'm a responsible driver).  But when I get home I was thinking I could see what had already been played and then thumb it there, but neither the browser nor the iOS app seem to have this.


Any ideas on how I can improve the radio without causing an accident?  (It doesn't help that merely activating the login screen doesn't have the thumbs up and down, you have to actually swipe to get into the phone so it's more than a simple phone touch.  And this is something iTunes does very well indeed, allowing you to improve your stations from iTunes whatever device you happen to be on, after the fact).

The only way to get listening history on the Spotify apps (apart from the desktop app) is to scrobble to (but even that doesn't work offline).

Good news!


The new "Recently Played" section is rolling out to the mobile app in the home tab. Here you will be able to see up to 3 months of listening history. Look for the clock icon in the top right corner of the home tab.


Travel back in time: Rediscover lost gems in your listening history with a new “Recently played” destination, where users can jump back in time and browse up to three months’ worth of listening history. Premium and Free users globally will be able to browse recently played individual tracks and episodes in addition to the playlists, albums, and shows they were played from.


You can read more info about "recently played" and other updates to the home tab in the news article:
