How To Hide And Unhide Songs On Spotify

The option to hide and unhide songs on Spotify can only be used on your mobile app, iPad, or tablet. This option is not available on your desktop app or web player. Despite all this, the process is very easy and will only take a few seconds.

Spotify has a cool little feature that allows users to hide/unhide certain songs but is only applicable to mobile devices and not the desktop app or web player.

Below are the necessary steps on how to hide and unhide songs on Spotify.
