Whether you are looking to remove your friends from your Spotify account or just want to keep your friends from seeing what you are listening to, you are in the right place. Below, you will find several ways to make this happen.
Hide your listening activity
Whether you want to hide your listening activity on Spotify for a while or just temporarily, there are several ways to do it. You can use a Private Session, turn off the sharing feature, or make specific playlists private. All of these options are available for Spotify desktop and mobile.
To hide your listening activity on Spotify for a period of time, go to your Library page. Tap the ellipsis icon in the top right corner of the page. This will bring up your settings menu. Tap the toggle next to “Listening Activity.” You can then choose whether or not you want to hide it. This will prevent Spotify from sharing it with other users. If you choose not to hide your listening activity, Spotify will automatically make it public for followers to see.
Spotify Private Session, on the other hand, will hide your listening activity from other users, and is similar to incognito mode in web browsers. Spotify recommends that you keep your listening activity private for at least six hours before turning it back on. You can use Private Session to hide your activity from your friends, but not from the Spotify recommendations algorithm. If you don’t use the app for six hours, your activity will automatically turn back on.
Spotify’s Sharing feature lets you share your music with friends, and also let other people see what you’re listening to in real time. The Sharing feature allows you to set specific playlists as private or public, and also lets you choose which of your friends can see your listening activity.
Spotify also lets you play music together remotely. You can use Spotify’s desktop or mobile app to play music together with your friends. You can even play music with friends you haven’t met yet. If you don’t know anyone on Spotify, you can also use the app’s social features to find people who share your tastes. The social features are available to all users, and you can choose to follow other users’ listening habits to find new music to listen to.
You can also make secret playlists on your desktop. Simply right-click the playlist you want to make secret, and select “make secret.” When you do this, you’ll see an option to “hide.” You’ll also have to turn on Private Session before you can make a playlist secret.
Turn on Friend Activity
Friend Activity on Spotify is a great feature that allows users to see what their friends are listening to. This is a relatively new feature that has only been available on the desktop and PC, but is soon to be available on the mobile app as well. The feature is similar to the one on the desktop, except it allows users to see what their friends are playing in real-time.
In order to see what your friends are listening to, you need to turn on the feature. You can turn on this feature by logging in to Spotify. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see the “Friend Activity” tab. The tab shows you what your friends are listening to, including their music streams and the latest song selections. If you don’t see this feature, you may need to restart your computer or re-install the Spotify app.
The community feature on Spotify is in development, but you can get a quick look at what your friends are listening to by going to the community page. The community page displays your friends’ most recent music selections, and will likely also include collaborative playlists.
Another great feature on the desktop app is the ability to follow friends who share your interests. Once you’re following someone, you’ll see their playlists, activity, and followers. You can also follow friends back. You can also use the app to share playlists with other people.
You can also hide certain playlists from your friends. This is a great feature for users who have trouble remembering to share playlists with others. You can also save song samples to your own library, or download them for offline listening.
In order to see what your friends’ music streams are, you’ll need to turn on the “Friend Activity” tab on the Spotify desktop app. The feature can be found on the Settings menu, and it should show you what your friends are listening to. Once you’ve turned on the feature, you’ll see an avatar on the upper right-hand corner of your Spotify app. If you don’t see this feature, it’s likely that your desktop app isn’t updated properly. You can re-install the app, restart your computer, or try logging out of Spotify and re-logging in.
Disable private session
Having a Private Session on Spotify is a great way to listen to music anonymously and keep what you are listening to out of your friends’ sight. Spotify does not provide any recommendations based on what you listen to in a Private Session. However, you can easily disable Private Sessions if you don’t want to share what you are listening to.
Spotify has a Social tab, which is where you can toggle Private Session on and off. You can also view your friend’s music, and see what they are listening to. You can even share the songs you like with your friends. There is also a Friend Activity section, which allows you to discover songs that were missed by Spotify’s algorithm.
Spotify also allows you to share your listening activity with friends. You can toggle on and off this feature, and you can also stop sharing it with friends. If you don’t want to share what you’re listening to, you can turn off Friend Activity.
You can also hide the activity from your friends’ profile pages. You can turn off Recently played artists, and even hide listening activity from your own playlists. You can also suppress listening activity for a specified amount of time.
In order to enable or disable Private Session, you need to tap the gear-shaped icon on the top right of the app. This will open the Settings screen. Once you’ve opened the Settings screen, scroll down to the Social section, and toggle on the Private Session option. You can also choose to make your Spotify playlists private.
If you aren’t sure what your friends are listening to, you can disable Listening Activity. Spotify will show you what your friends are listening to, and you can make that information private if you want to. You can even create a fake persona on Spotify. This is similar to catfishing.
Spotify’s Private Session feature is also great for listening to sad songs, or music you don’t want your friends to hear. It’s also great for users who want to listen to sensual music, but don’t want their friends to know.
Refresh your Spotify app
Whether you are on a desktop or a mobile device, you can refresh your Spotify app to see what your friends are playing. Spotify’s new Community Hub shows the most recent playlists from your friends. In addition to seeing what your friends are listening to, you can also share your own playlists with them.
You can also view Spotify’s stats. These stats can be found in the history section, which is located in the upper right corner of the display. This section displays all the songs you’ve played and the ones you’ve recently downloaded. You can also view the stats on a mobile device.
Spotify users have the option to enable or disable the friends’ activity feature. If you’re not seeing any activity, you can either refresh the setting or close and reopen the app. You can also contact Spotify’s customer service.
If you want to see what your friends are playing, you can search for your friends’ names or usernames. You can also view the list of their recently played artists. You can also add the songs to your playlist, or you can share the song.
You can also follow your friends back. If you’ve already followed a friend, you can click on their name and see what they’re listening to. You can also search for a friend’s name and ask them for playlist links.
Spotify users can also follow friends who share similar interests. You can also add your own Spotify account to your profile. You can use the app on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Windows, Roku, and Sky. Currently, Spotify has more than 100 million users.
You can also follow friends who are not in your friends list. This feature can be useful when you’re interested in listening to a particular artist, but don’t know any of their friends. This can also help you discover new artists.
In addition to following friends, you can also search for the songs that you’re interested in listening to. Spotify will provide recommendations based on your listening history. You can also use the recommendations to create playlists.
