How to Clear Queue on Spotify Using iPhone, Android, and Desktop

Do you change songs based on mood or work? If this is the case, you may have a lot of songs queued on Spotify to play. But what if you accidentally queued up a song you don’t like, or you just want to hear something different? Well, Spotify offers you an easy way to clear the queue. In this article, we will show you how to clear your Spotify queue.

How to Clear Queue on Spotify

If you’re unfamiliar, a Spotify queue is basically a lineup, or sequence, of songs in order. When you add a track to your queue in Spotify, it means that track will be played next. One thing to note here is that the Add to Queue option on Spotify is accessible to premium users, not free users. That is, a free user can queue the song, but cannot edit or view the queue.

In addition, you can arrange the songs to play according to your preference by clicking the queue button in the Spotify player > long-press and slide the three-line button to the right of the song. Now let’s see how to remove queue on Spotify.

Tip: If you are someone who has a library of songs on your device, you can also upload them using Spotify.
