Have any of you ever clicked on the "I'm Feeling Lucky Mix" button which creates a mix based on your music taste?

this is a great and excellent feature to have. I've clicked on it multiple times, and now I have multiple instant mixes.

but how do you delete an instant mix? I have these instant mix playlists now, and I don't want them anymore.

I thought I had deleted them somehow previously (don't ask, I can't remember), and what's even stranger is that when I click on "Listen Now" 'All Music', I see all my music there, however, I also see Instant Mixes, I don't want them in there anymore.

When I go to http://music.google.com and login, and click on "Instant Mixes", THERE ARE NONE ! When I click on "Listen Now", there are none in there also!, this is how it should be on my cellphone/tablet as well.

Yet on my tablet, when I view All Music by clicking "Listen Now", I see them in there.

clicking on the 3 dot menu doesn't get rid of them because there is no remove option, no delete option either.


can anyone help?

The Listen Now section is populated automatically based on a few different factors (listening history, recently purchased music, etc...). If you are talking about the old "Instant Mix" feature it should have saved to your Playlists. If you're talking about the new "I'm Feeling Lucky Radio" feature, it shouldn't save anywhere.

Are these instant mixes still showing up under Playlist on your phone/tablet?

@slickromeo There are two types of instant mixes, user-generated ones (which you can delete) and auto-generated ones (which always appear). I was annoyed by them when they were first introduced, so I wrote a chrome extension[1] to give the user control over what they see. I just finished porting it to firefox[2] as well. That will help take care of them when using the web player at least. No joy for people using the app, though.
