Play Queue and History

The Play Queue lets you quickly order and arrange the songs you want to hear in advance. 

You can add or remove tracks or albums, and change the order they play at any time (Premium only). 

What’s more, you can view your recent listening history on the desktop app. Perfect for when you forget the name of an awesome track you heard not so long ago.
