How to Remove Recently Played List on Spotify 2022?

It is possible to access the songs and playlists you played recently on Spotify Premium. The “recently played” playlist is accessible to anyone who follows you, and it is not just visible to you. Some people may find this to be a bit intrusive if they are discreet with their music tastes. Fortunately, you have the option to choose what to keep from your recently played music and what to remove.

You might also find this useful if you don’t want your friends or family to be able to hear your recently played music or podcasts if they access your Spotify account. Spotify’s desktop apps for Windows and Mac allow you to clear your recently played music. 

It is important to note that clearing the Recently Played list is not available on the Spotify app or on the Spotify web player, but if you do so in the desktop app, it is removed from all devices that utilize your Spotify account.

To Remove Recently Played List on Spotify:

Open the Spotify app on your PC or Mac and Select “Recently Played” from the menu on the left.

Clicking the button will remove the item from the Recent Plays list. Including on mobile devices, this will also delete the item from other Spotify devices connected to your account.

It’s not possible to clear the “Recently Played” list at once, so you’ll need to do this step for every entry.
