Last week I showed you how to create Xbox Music playlists in Windows 8.1 using Bing. That is all fine and good for creating playlists on the fly, but after a while you might want to get rid of them. For whatever reason, it’s not a simple as right-clicking on a playlist and selecting Delete – like it is with virtually every other music player.
Deleting a playlist is different on each device, but once you delete a playlist on say your Windows Phone, it deletes it across the board on all of your devices. Here’s a look at how to delete playlists on each platform Xbox Music is available on.
Delete Xbox Music Playlists
Windows 8.1 Xbox Music App: To delete a playlist in Xbox Music using the app on Windows 8.1, you need to select the playlist first. Then at the top click the (…) icon for more choices, and select Delete.
Xbox Music for the web: Again you need to select the playlist to open it up, and then click the trashcan icon to delete it.
Windows Phone: Open the Xbox Music app, drill down to Playlists, then press and hold it to get the popup menu to delete.
Android and iOS Apps: Deleting a playlist on Android is similar to Windows phone. Just press and hold the playlist and then tap delete. On iOS, press and hold the playlist, and tap Delete from the menu that pops up.
Xbox 360: On your console go to Xbox Music > My Music > Playlists then select the one you want to delete and choose Delete Playlist.
