How To Clear Queue on Spotify With iPhone

Spotify Song

Spotify has lots of playlists with different genres and artists, so it’s easy to find something you like to listen to while doing your daily chores.

However, there are days when you don’t enjoy the playlists Spotify makes. This is where the app’s queuing system comes in handy. You can queue up days’ worth of your favorite song or clear your queue to revamp the playlist.

Quick Answer

To clear the Spotify queue on your iPhone, tap on the current song to open it on full screen. At the bottom right, you’ll see a “Queue” button. Tap on that and then select “Clear” on the screen’s right side.

Are you looking to learn how to clear some songs or the whole list of Spotify songs from your queue? Here’s what you need to do!

Why Clear the Spotify Queue

Everyone’s music tastes evolve with time. You might have been using Spotify for years, but maybe you used to like sad songs but are out of that funk now. Alternatively, you could be more into lo-fi beats now while your queue is still full of pop songs. 

If you skip most songs in your queue, it’s time to clear it and make a new one. If you like just half of the list, you can remove the songs you don’t like and let Spotify play the rest!

How To Clear Queue on Spotify

Spotify allows you to clear all the songs in the queue or remove selected tunes. To see the lineup on your iPhone, you need to log in to your Spotify account from a laptop.


The Queue icon looks like an ellipse on top of two horizontal lines.

How To Clear Individual songs From the Queue

If you’ve chosen any playlist at random and have hit the play button, it won’t be possible to completely clear the queue without playing a different playlist or stopping it.

However, you can still clear individual songs from the queue. Follow the steps below.

  1. Launch the Spotify iPhone app and make sure you’re logged into the Spotify web player
  2. On your iPhone, play a song if you don’t already have one playing.
  3. Tap on the “now playing” bar at the bottom of the screen to open the full-screen music player.
  4. Tap the Queue icon at the bottom right.
  5. Check the radio button (circle icon on the left of each song) of all the songs you want to remove from the queue.
  6. Select “Remove” on the screen’s bottom-left.

If you follow the steps above to remove a song from a playlist, Spotify will skip it, but it won’t delete the music from your playlist. It’ll still be present, and Spotify will add it to the queue the next time you play the same playlist.

How To Clear All Songs From the Queue

If you manually created a queue of your favorite Spotify songs, you could clear it entirely. Here’s how.

  1. Follow steps 1-4 as mentioned above.
  2. Tap on “Clear Queue” next to “Next In Queue“.


Sometimes, you might not like the songs that Spotify has lined up for you, or you might be in the mood to listen to something specific. Luckily, you can clear the queue on Spotify and add all the songs you want to listen to. This way, you have complete control over what plays next.

Once you have the perfect playlist, you can leave Spotify running in the background and focus on the task. Plus, you won’t have to stop doing what you’re doing and switch back to Spotify to change a song!
