How to Clear Queue on Spotify (iPhone 13)

Need help clearing old unwanted songs and audio tracks from your Spotify account in iOS 15? This post highlights the actual procedure. Read on to learn how to clear queue on Spotify in iOS 15 and later devices including the latest  iPhone 13 variants.

Spotify is one of the most popular online music streaming platforms to date. It’s available in various types of devices including Android and iOS devices.

With Spotify, you can gain access to millions of songs and other media content from different artists worldwide.

For starters, subscribing to Spotify basics grants you access to a wide genre of songs and tracks that are totally free. For better, add-free music streaming, Spotify Premium upgrade is offered.

What is Spotify Queue?

Among the first things most people do after downloading Spotify on their mobile device is to add their favorite songs, tracks and albums from their favorite artists. After downloading the songs, you can start relaxing while listening to them.

To narrow your playlist down to your top 30, 20, or 10 favorite titles, you can add the desired song title to your Spotify queue.

The process of adding tracks to the queue is as simple as tapping on the triple dot icon next to the desired track and then confirming it by tapping on the Add to Queue command.

Clearing Queue on Spotify

If you’ve been using Spotify for years, chances are that your Spotify queue is already packed with different titles. While this may not be a big deal to many, it may result in some inconvenience or confusion as you will likely have a hard time finding a specific title to play and listen to.

Random performance issues may also occur including lags or sluggishness. And if the existing queue contains some corrupted audio files, there’s also a tendency for unexpected in-app errors and glitches to occur. This is when the clearing queue comes in handy.

The process of clearing the Spotify queue varies depending on the platform in which Spotify is running, like on PC, Mac, Android or iOS.

In case you’re wondering how to get this done on the Spotify app on the new iPhone 13, I’ve outlined out a step-by-step guide as follows.

Steps to Clear Queue on Spotify App for iOS

The following steps are also applicable when clearing the queue on Spotify in other iPhone models running in iOS 15 or later versions. However, there may be some slight differences on every device’s user interface given that actual screens and menu items vary between device models and wireless carriers.

Just ensure that your phone software is updated to ensure all essential menu options are present. Also make sure that you’re using the latest version of Spotify app on your iPhone. You can manually update the app through the App Store, if needed.

Once you’ve got everything set, just proceed with these steps:

Step 1: Open the Spotify mobile app on your iPhone to get started. 
Step 2: If you haven’t already, sign into your Spotify account. Otherwise, skip to the next step.
Step 3: Go to the current playback screen and click on the song that’s playing.

Step 4: Tap on the three dots on the top-right side or the three horizontal lines (queue icon) next to the song title playing at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 5: If you tapped the menu (triple-dot) icon, tap Go to queue on the next screen to access your Spotify queue list. Otherwise, skip to the next step.

Step 6: Tap to mark the radio button before the song title that you want to remove from the queue list. You can mark multiple songs.

Step 7: When done selecting song titles, tap Remove at the bottom leftmost corner of the screen.

In other devices, like the Spotify desktop app, a single Clear Queue command to delete the entire queue at once is available for users to tap on when needed.

All selected songs will then be deleted from the queue list.

To delete more songs from the list, just repeat the same steps to mark the next set of songs to remove from the queue.

When to Clear your Spotify Queue?

If you’re trying to add new songs and playlists and your Spotify app is suddenly acting up, chances are that the current queue list is already overwhelmed.

That said, you need to free up some space. To make this happen, you can use the Spotify command called Remove Queue or Clear Queue to delete the songs that you no longer wanted to stay in your list and to make way for your new favorites.

Deleting unwanted audio tracks from the queue list will help Spotify perform better and faster. It works the same when you clear your iPhone storage from old and unwanted contents for smoother and steady performance.

Having trouble clearing the queue list on Spotify?

Make sure your iPhone is connected to the internet. If the Spotify mobile app is lagging, suddenly stopping or not responding, manually offloading and redownloading Spotify will likely fix it.

Offloading the app will delete the app from the device without removing its data and documents. As a result, you will still be able to retrieve and use these documents when you re-download Spotify from the App store.
