What Is Amazon Music History?

Typically, music streaming platforms keep track of your listening history for personal recommendations. They allow users to check and edit the listening history as well. However, the listening history feature can be given various names on different platforms. For Amazon Music, this feature is displayed as both “Recently Played” and “Song History”.

  • Recently Played: Show your recently played playlists, albums, and stations
  • Song History: Your recently played songs listed one by one

How to Find Amazon Music Recently Played on Mobile?

It is quick and easy to access your Amazon Music Recently Played from your mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, and Android. However, the Amazon Music app on mobile devices doesn’t support displaying Song History. To see your recently played songs listed one by one, you’ll need to use the Amazon Music app on your computer. The situation is the same for the Amazon Music web player – with only Recently Played available.

To view your Recently Played list on your iOS and Android devices, follow these steps:

  1. Launch the Amazon Music app on your phone and tap Library from the bottom.
  2. Scroll down until you find the Recently Played.
  3. You can swipe left and right to see the full list of your recently played playlists and albums. Tap a certain playlist/album to play it again.

How to View Your Listening History on Amazon Music Desktop App?

You can find both the Recently Played and Song History from the Amazon Music app on your Mac or Windows:

  1. Go to the Amazon Music app on your Mac or Windows.
  2. Click Library at the top and select Music.
  3. Select the RECENTS tab to see Recently Played and Song History.
  4. To see the full lists, click the SEE ALL button.

How to Clear Amazon Music History?

To edit the listening history, the best option is the Amazon Music app on your desktop. The Amazon Music app on Mac or Windows not only allows you to remove playlists or albums from your Recently Played but also delete individual songs from the Song History.

  1. From the Amazon Music desktop app or the web player, select Library > Music > RECENTS.
  2. Hover over a playlist or album and click the three dots.
  3. Select Remove from History.

To Delete an Individual Song

  1. Select Library > Music > RECENTS from the Amazon Music app on your Mac or Windows computer.
  2. Click SEE ALL next to Song History to view the entire song list.
  3. Hover over a song and click the three dots, then select Remove from History.
