The Play Queue, which can be seen in the Spotify main sidebar, is a useful feature that lets you know what Spotify will play next. Checking your queue is easy, but you need to know how to find the feature depending on whether you’re on a desktop or mobile.

On desktop, the queue icon may be found in the “Now Playing” bar, which is always displayed. Due to the restricted space on your mobile device, just the play or pause buttons are visible. The queue icon will appear in a pop-up window when you tap it.

You can edit your queue at any time, allowing you to add and remove songs. By right-clicking on your desktop or hitting the three dots on your mobile device, you may add a song or album while you browse.

Here’s how to view your Spotify queue on desktop and mobile.
