How to Delete Recently Played Songs or Playlists from the iPhone Spotify App


The Spotify app on your iPhone has a section where it lists the songs, albums, or playlists to which you have recently listened. This is very convenient if you found a song that you liked and want to be able to listen to it again, or add it to an existing playlist.

But you will eventually hear a song that you don’t like, or maybe you share your Spotify account with a friend or family member and you have different tastes. If this causes an unwanted song to appear in the Recently Played section of the app, then you may be looking for a way to remove it. Our guide below will walk you through the process of clearing items from Spotify’s Recently Played section.
