Spotify: How to Remove a Song From Playlist (iOS)

Removing a song from your playlist on your Apple IOS iPhone or iPad device only takes a few steps.

You only have rights to remove a song that you added to a playlist that you created.

Removing a song from one playlist doesn’t delete it or remove it from any of your other playlists. It only deletes it from the playlist that you are editing.

Your change to the playlist will be updated across all of your devices.

1. Open the playlist with the song to remove

in Spotify, open the playlist that lists the song you want to remove:

2. Select the songlist on the playlist page

Once the playlist page is open, select the songlist. This will list the songs on the playlist:

3. Select the three dots of the song being removed from your playlist

Find the song to remove and select the three dots on the right hand side of the song. This will open the options to edit the song on your playlist(sorry Harry – just for demonstration purposes only):

4. Select Remove from this Playlist

Finally, select Remove from this Playlist. Spotify will notify you when the song is removed, with a ‘Removed <song name>‘ message at the bottom of the screen:
