We need a way to clear an entire mobile queue (iOS)

Device

(iPhone XS Max)

Operating System

(iOS 12.3.1)

Spotify Version

8.5.7.601

 

I have run into this a bunch of times and don't know why it wasn't an issue before which makes me think it's a bug?

 

I've had various playlists of mine add to my queue without my doing (100+ songs) and then if I want to stop the entire playlist from playing I then have to delete 100+ songs by tapping every one? I don't know how these playlists are automatically adding to my queue, but without the ability to mass delete my now stacked queue would take so long to erase!

 

Implementing such an easy alternative would solve this problem, whether it's actually a bug or me adding whole playlists to my queue and totally forgetting I did it. I can't even add songs to the front of the queue because the whole playlist is in front of it - I have to press every new song as the current one ends. The only way I've been able to fix it is by deleting the app and just reinstalling/signing in.

 

Help?

Bumping. I have since updated to the newer version of Spotify with the UI update (just showed up for me yesterday although I know people with older iPhone models that have had the update for weeks now) so I don't know if that will change things. 

 

Regardless, this is a feature that should be implemented as it would be so practical.

Hi NpXX,

 

I agree that a way to clear the queue on mobile easily would be helpful. In the meantime, do you have access to a desktop version of Spotify? If so, go to the queue icon (two icons over from the sound slider at the bottom right), and click "Clear" in the Next in Queue section, or shift-click the range of songs you want to clear from queue and then right-click (ctrl-click on Mac) and select "Remove from Queue).

Thanks for the response!

 

If I clear my queue from the desktop app will that clear the queue from the mobile app as well? (Say I switch control from one to the other while I'm doing it.)

Yes it will! Spotify Connect allows Spotify to sync really quickly across devices, so anything you do on one device should sync near-instantaneously to your other ones. :)

Okay, that's what I figured. Thank you for confirming :)

 

I guess until the mobile app gets a reset button this is a good workaround and I do have a Mac I can use to do this (if necessary) with the new update!

Sure! Sorry I couldn't be of more help on the mobile side specifically, but I'm glad I could provide a workaround for you. If you have any other issues with this, let me know and we'll try to figure something out. Have a great day!

Just chiming in to say it is absolutely ridiculous there’s no way to bulk clear a queue with one tap, especially since tapping the first song of an album doesn’t automatically add the rest of the album next in the queue! Madness. Making the move to Apple Music if this doesn’t resolve by end of September.

Scroll to the very last track on the queue 

click on it to play 

this deletes all the tracks before it from queue. 

 

Enjoy 😉
