Spotify is one of the biggest media giants in the world. It’s the most popular subscription streaming provider. Like with other music streamers, playlists are a prominent feature of Spotify, whether they are created by the user or by Spotify as suggested listening. Starting a playlist fills your queue with all the titles on that list. You have some control over your queue, even with a free Spotify account. But you have to be on the queue screen to control anything. So let’s go over how you view your queue on Spotify.

QUICK ANSWER

To view your queue on Spotify while using your phone, tap the Now Playing bar at the bottom of your screen. Then tap the Play Queue button in the lower right corner. Your current queue will come up.

How to view your Spotify queue on desktop

Open your Spotify desktop app. The window is adjustable, so drag the lower right corner of the window and make it large enough to see the controls easily. In the lower right corner, you will see several icons. One of these icons is the Queue button (it looks like a stack of two lines and a box). Click on it to see your current queue.

If you click on the three horizontal dots next to a song’s running time (three vertical dots on a Mac), you will bring up a menu of controls for that song. You can add a song to the queue, which will make it play next, or remove it from the queue. You can also save the song to your Liked Songs, add it to a playlist, or share it on social media.
