How to See Which Songs Spotify Has Removed From Your Playlists

Spotify streams some-more than 30 million songs and has some-more than 2 billion playlists, that is because it’s infrequently tough to keep lane of songs that come and go. If you’ve ever beheld that one of your favorite songs has stopped playing, don’t censure a algorithm right away; it only competence meant that a strain was private from a streaming service.

Sometimes artists will lift their strain from Spotify, that automatically leads to a streaming use stealing a songs from a whole catalog—without notifying users. But tatter not: There’s a environment that lets we see what songs have left from your playlists. This is really useful if we wish to henceforth buy a songs on iTunes and still play them on Spotify as internal files.


Go to Settings, and underneath Display Options, capacitate Show taken songs in playlists (this is both on mobile and desktop). Once that toggle symbol is green, all songs that have been private by Spotify will be manifest in your playlists. The strain titles will seem in gray, though we won’t be means to play them.

Spotify doesn’t yield any sum on when a songs were removed, because they were pulled, or when they’ll return. Sometimes Spotify will mislay and censor songs that were expelled as singles and rereleased with an manuscript (e.g. Britney Spears’ Work Work). So make certain to revisit a artist’s page and supplement that specific strain behind into your playlists.


Some artists we know have pulled their songs from Spotify due to a streaming wars (Apple vs Spotify vs Tidal). However, some K-pop bands and indie artists have also left from Spotify. Other large artists whose strain has been pulled embody Rihanna’s aged songs, some songs by The Killers and Thirty Seconds to Mars, and Lana Del Ray pre-2012. Taylor Swift had left, though she’s now behind with her whole collection. We’re still watchful for Beyoncé’s Lemonade.
