How to Access Your Spotify Listening History on Android
You can improve your music suggestions, rediscover songs you’ve liked in the past, and make sure the music library appropriately matches your current interests by accessing your Spotify listening history on Android. Here are two ways to access the Spotify listening history on Android:
