How to Clear Your Spotify Queue on iPhone

When it comes to creating a playlist of podcasts and songs you want to listen to later, queuing them up is really convenient. But sometimes, all those enqueued audio files can start to pile up and get in the way of your listening experience.

But don’t worry, there’s good news! You can easily clear the Spotify queue on your iPhone or Android device. And the process is the same for both operating systems since we’re using the app.

In this article, I’ll also show you how to remove any extra songs and podcasts from your Spotify queue if you’re using it on your desktop.

Clearing the Spotify Queue on Your iPhone

Doing this on your mobile device is a piece of cake, but there’s a catch. You can’t just clear the entire queue with one tap like you might hope. Instead, you’ll need to remove each item one by one.

Step 1

First, open up Spotify and start playing a podcast or song. You should see the playback controls and album artwork on your screen.

Next, tap on the queue icon. You’ll find it at the bottom right of the screen, and it looks like a hamburger icon with a play button in the upper left corner.

Step 2

Once you’re inside the queue, you’ll see a circle in front of each song. Tap on the circle next to each song you want to remove. Then, at the bottom of the screen, tap the big “REMOVE” button. And just like that, you’ve gotten rid of some of those enqueued items.

Important Note:

Even though there isn’t a single “Clear All” button, you can still remove multiple audio files from the queue at once. Just tap the circle in front of each item and then click “REMOVE”.

You might see a confirmation pop-up, and you can click “REMOVE” or “OK” to complete the action.

Removing Songs from the Spotify Queue on Your Computer

The Spotify app on your computer allows you to clear the entire queue with just one click, unlike the mobile app.

Step 1

To start, open the app on your PC or Mac, and click on the queue icon. It’s located at the bottom right of the screen, and it looks the same as we described before.

Step 2

Above the songs in the queue, you’ll find a “Clear” button. Click on it to remove all the songs from the list. Once again, you might see a pop-up asking you to confirm your action.

Here’s What You Need to Know

When you clear all the songs in your queue on the desktop app, the “Clear” button disappears from the menu. And if your queue is already empty, there won’t be a button at all.

You can also remove individual songs from your queue on the desktop app. Just select the song or podcast you want to remove, right-click, and choose “Remove from Queue” from the menu that pops up.

How to Add Songs to the Queue?

Adding songs to your queue is really easy, and the process is pretty similar whether you’re using the desktop or mobile app.

For iOS and Android

On your mobile device, you need to be on the screen that shows the next song that will play. Tap on the “Now Playing” option at the bottom of the app window. Then tap on the queue icon and the “More” menu for additional options. Once you’re in the menu, tap the queue icon once more to “Add to Queue”.

Important Note:

The “More” menu icon looks slightly different on Android and iOS devices. On Android, it’s three vertical dots. On iOS, the dots are horizontal.

If you’re using an iPad, the album cover will appear in the side menu. Other than that, the user interface is the same, and you can use the same actions to add or remove songs from the queue.

For the Desktop App

Click on the queue icon at the bottom right of the screen. To add a song to the queue, right-click on the song or podcast and select “Add to Queue”. If you choose to add an entire album, Spotify will add all the songs in the order they appear in the album.

How to Change the Order of Songs in the Queue?

Again, this action is straightforward and works similarly on both the mobile and desktop Spotify apps.

On your smartphone, tap and hold the hamburger icon next to the song. You should now be able to lift the song and drop it in the desired position.

Desktop users should click and hold on the song they want to move, then drop it to a new position. Just a reminder, you can find the songs under “Next Up” in the “Play Queue” menu.

Moving Songs from the Queue to a Playlist

If you really like a song in your queue and want to move it to a playlist, there are two ways to do it.

Select the song, right-click, and choose “Add to Playlist”. Then, select the playlist you want to add it to. This works on both the desktop app, and you can also move multiple songs to a playlist using this method.

On the mobile app, tap the “More” menu and choose the same action. On the desktop, you can simply drag and drop songs into a playlist, but you’ll need to open the full Spotify window to do so.

Creating a Party Queue

The Spotify user interface is well-organized and easy to navigate, so you can always quickly remove songs from the queue. It can be a bit annoying that there’s no option to remove all the songs from the queue on the mobile app, but that might change in a future update.
