Often listen to the same songs while shuffling Spotify music? One of the reason is that Spotify shuffle sucks, another reason is that you may have many duplicate songs in your playlist. However, Spotify doesn’t not have a built-in feature to check and remove duplicates from your playlists. You can sort songs by name and delete duplicate songs manually on Spotify desktop app, however, it can be time-consuming when you have playlists with thousands of songs.

In this post, we will introduce a best free tool to automatically identify and remove duplicate songs from your Spotify playlists across devices.

 Part 1. Remove Duplicates from Spotify playlists on Desktop

1. Open Spotify app on your Mac or Windows.

2. Click Playlists under Your Library on the left side.

3. Navigate to the playlist you want to clean up.

4. Click Title to sort all songs by title, find duplicate songs and delete them. Right click the song or click the three dots icon and choose Remove from this playlist. To remove multiple duplicate songs, press the Ctrl key (PC) or Command key (Mac) and select them.

Part 2. Remove Duplicates from Spotify playlists on Mobile

1. Open the Spotify app on your phone or tablet.

2. Tap Your Library and find the playlist you want to remove duplicate songs from.

3. Find the duplicate song and choose Remove from this playlist.

For Spotify free users, open the playlist and tap on and more. Here can you view all songs in the playlist. When you find the duplicate song, tao the three dots icon and choose Remove from this playlist.

Part 3. Remove duplicates from Spotify playlists Automatically with Spotify Dedup

Spotify Dedup is an online tool that checks your playlists and saved songs in your Spotify library. Once Dedup finds duplicates you can remove them on a per-playlist basis. Dedup will only remove duplicate songs, leaving the rest of the playlist and saved songs untouched. This web app uses the Spotify Web API to manage user’s playlists and saved tracks.

How to remove duplicates with Spotify Dedup?

1. Open Spotify Dedup in your browser and log in with your Spotify account.

2. The script checks your playlists and saved songs.

3. Once the analysis is over (shouldn’t take long) you will have lists with all the duplicates from all the playlists and you can simply press “Remove duplicates from this playlist”.

To check whether the results are right, open the playlist in Spotify and click Title until it shows a green triangle(means songs are ordered by title A-Z), and check the duplicate songs. I have checked several playlists and Spotify Dedup finds correct duplicates.

If the duplicates result is correct, click “Remove duplicates from this playlist” to remove duplicates. In case you use this and appreciate the guys work he has a Buy Me A Coffee link.

FAQs
