Remove Liked Songs

The Like feature next to songs and playlists ensures that you have a record of the songs you enjoyed. However, many of us tend to hit the Like button next to a song and eventually forget about it or get bored of it. Liking a lot of songs can clutter the app fast. Follow the steps below to ensure that your Like list is up to date.

Step-1: Open the desktop Spotify app.

Step-2: Click on Liked Songs on the left pane of the app.

Deleting Playlists

Some people have playlists according to where they are at work, the commute, gym, etc. According to their moods, some people make playlists [I am the latter, as you can see from my playlists]. Some of us create way too many playlists that we don’t even listen to anymore. These playlists take up space needlessly, so you should always delete those you no longer listen to.

Step-1: Open Spotify App.

Step-2: Scroll down to see all your playlists on the left pane.

Unfollow Artists

Following artists, especially up-and-coming artists, allow you to watch the career progress. However, we live in a time where it is important to be aware of the principles and ethics of the people we follow. So, if an artist disappointed you, whether it comes to their music or because of their political views, you should unfollow them.

Step-1: Open the desktop Spotify app.

Step-2: Click on Your Library and the top left corner of the app.
