How to Clear Up Your Apple Music Queue?

Share This:

Apple Music is a popular music streaming service offered by Apple Inc. It allows users to access millions of songs, playlists, and radio stations on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Android devices. One of the features of Apple Music is the ability to add music to your queue to play next. However, if you want to clear your music queue, there are a few steps you can follow.

First, open the Apple Music app on your device. Then, select the song or album that you want to play next. Tap on the three dots next to the song or album title, and select “Add to Up Next” from the options that appear. You can repeat this process for as many songs or albums as you want to add to your queue.

If you decide that you want to clear your music queue, simply play a different song or album that is not in your queue. When you do this, you will see an option to clear your music queue. If you choose Clear, then the music in your queue will be replaced with the music you’ve selected to play.

It’s important to note that if you have added songs or albums to your library, they will still be available even if you clear your music queue. To delete songs or albums from your library, go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage or iPad Storage. Scroll to Music and tap it. Swipe left on All Songs or on the item that you want to delete, then tap Delete.

Apple Music is a great way to listen to your favorite songs and discover new music. The ability to add music to your queue to play next is a convenient feature, but if you ever want to clear your music queue, it’s easy to do so. Just remember that deleting songs or albums from your library is a separate process that requires a few extra steps.
