Empty Play Queue before Play of Album/Playlists/Songs like Sonos

Post by stereopolique » Sat Mar 16, 2019 5:41 am

Hey guys,

when adding playlists (Tidal New Releases eg) I often shuffle them most of the times. Since the play-queue won't get emptied I shuffle all my recently played albums as well. I think that shuffle-behaviour is completely ok, I think the play-queue might need another handling.

What I know from my Sonos-days is that they empty the play-queue every time a new album/song whatever gets played which is very convenient in my opinion because I can add to the play-queue whenever I want to make use of it but can play playlists and albums in shuffle without playing albums I played months ago. Maybe an option in the settings to "empty play queue with every play" and the ability to add music still with "add to play queue, add last" and all of that.

And no, regularly emptying the play-queue is not an option for me because it's not in great reach to do this conveniently.

What do you guys think of it?

Sonos has changed how it handles the queue and now does this using a menu so you can select... “Replace Queue” amongst the playing options, so IMHO this would be ideal.

Hey guys,

the 'play and replace queue' option is on my wishlist too. :)

I think this was requested a few years ago already...

Is this something we could make happen? I spend TOO much of my day deleting the play-queue before playing stuff and it feels right outdated to not have this "intelligence" in the app to do this beforehand.

If you're using the Windoze app, it's easy enough to {CTRL}+D to clear the queue before adding a new album/playlist.
