A lot of people use Spotify to entertain themselves during their daily commute, early morning jogs or exercise routine, while working or studying, and while doing chores.
Online streamers also use Spotify during live streams to enhance the viewing experience of their audiences. The tracks they choose to add to their queue set the mood. If the songs fit the stream, the viewers will enjoy watching them more.
Picking the right tracks to match the mood you want is essential to create the right atmosphere and vibes.
If you want to relax after a day’s work, you should select songs that are mellow. But if you want to get things done, pump up yourself with upbeat tracks that will make you want to move it.
However, you are bound to not like some tracks in a Spotify playlist. Or the songs simply don’t fit the mood you want.
Here is where the knowledge of how to remove tracks from your queue comes in handy.
There are two ways to do it. Either you clear the entire queue list or remove individual songs from the tracks list. We will discuss both so that you can better manage your playlists.
