How to See Your Spotify Listening History (2024 Guide)

In Short
  • Spotify's Listening history lets you take a look at everything that you've been listening to on the platform.
  • To see it on your phone, open the Spotify app -> profile icon -> listening history.
  • On PC, head over to Spotify web player or desktop app -> Home -> Recently played -> Show all.

While most of us look forward to the detailed year-end Spotify Wrapped for those precious stats, you don’t have to wait as long to see your Spotify listening history. You can do so at any point in time and can access it via your PC or mobile phone. It collects and stores all the albums, single tracks, and podcasts that you’ve been listening to for a quick revisit. So, if you’re looking to do so, here’s a detailed guide on the same! Read on.

Check Spotify Listening History on Android and iOS

The Spotify mobile app for both Android and iOS is identical at this point, and hence, the process of checking your listening history is also the same. With that out of the way, here are the steps to do so:

  1. Once you open the Spotify app on your phone, locate and tap on your profile icon at the top left corner.
  2. Here, you will see the dedicated Listening History tab.
  3. Upon tapping on it, you will see all the tracks and albums that you’ve been listening to on Spotify.

See Spotify Listening History on PC

Spotify also lets you see your listening history on a PC via the web player or dedicated desktop app. So, if you’re on either of those, here’s how to go about it:

  • When on the Spotify web player or desktop app, head over to your Spotify Home page.
  • Here, you will find the Recently played section with a Show All button adjacent to it. Click on it.

  • All that you have been listening to on the platform will show up instantly on the page.

Sadly, you can’t delete your Spotify listening history and give yourself a fresh start. Years ago, Spotify’s desktop app did offer that functionality, but not anymore. Another thing that we noticed was that Spotify’s listening history is not well synchronized across the platforms. So, not all tracks and albums load up.

It needs work, but yes, that brings us to the end of this guide. If you have any further related queries, do take to the comments down below and we’ll get right back!

Can I see how many times I’ve listened to a song on Spotify?

No. Spotify doesn’t let you see the number of times you have listened to a track. You are limited to the overall view count of a track, which is displayed right underneath. If you want more stats out of your Spotify account, take to third-party services like,, and the like.

Can I hide my Spotify listening history?

While you can’t hide your Spotify listening history from your own account, you can pause for 6 hours. To do so, when on the mobile app, tap on the profile icon → Settings and privacy → Privacy and social → Private Session. Once activated, a Private Session lasts for 6 hours, after which you’ll have to reactivate it.

Why is my Spotify listening history not showing anything?

During our testing, the feature was inconsistent as the listening history wasn’t synced across platforms. Sometimes, the feature can also glitch out and may not display all that you have listened to on the platform.
