How To See Your Spotify Listening History (50 Songs)

Spotify is a music streaming service that allows users to listen to millions of songs worldwide. You can view your recent history or look back and see what you were listening to days, weeks, or even months ago. This history comprises all the songs you have played on Spotify, organized by date.

View Your Spotify History on Desktop

You can also view your listening history if you’re using Spotify on your desktop computer. Compared with the mobile app, the desktop app makes it much easier to see your Spotify listening history. Here’s how to do it:

1. Open Spotify on your computer and log in, if necessary.

Is Spotify free?

Spotify has a free version with ads but limitations such as no offline listening and no on-demand playback. To remove these limitations, you need to upgrade to a paid subscription.

Is it possible to delete Spotify history?

The old version of Spotify had the feature to clear Spotify history, but the new Spotify UI doesn’t. So you can only see your Spotify history but cannot remove it.

How long does Spotify keep your history?

Spotify keeps your history as long as the app is installed and plays a song. Fifty songs is the maximum number of songs in your Spotify history, and it may change in the future.

Can I see my Spotify Listening History on the web?

No, you can’t. The Spotify web player doesn’t have the feature to show your listening history. You must use the desktop or mobile app to view your Spotify history.

I searched for a way to see it on the web, but there isn’t one.

How much is Spotify monthly?
