How do I go about deleting albums from my Google Play Music account using the mobile app? I can delete individual songs but not albums or artists. On the full website I can delete songs, albums, and artists but not on mobile, only songs. I thought Google updated the app a while ago to include the delete function but I seem to be completely missing it?

I have the same issue. I have 6 albums with a few songs each that I can get rid of. I tried deleting the album and it shows back up after about 10 minutes. I tried deleting the songs and they show back up. They are not in the directory that I sync with.

When I try to play any of these songs I get "Couldn't play song. Skipped adead.

That is not really my issue, my issue is that i do not even have the option in any of the over flow menus to delete albums or artists, only when i use the overflow button on the songs.

Just delete google play music app's cache, clear media storage app's data and finally restart the device.
First launch after this will give you an empty library, just wait a few minutes and you'll get everything reloaded again, but now without the deleted songs/albums.

taz633's advice worked for me.
Taz633's advice worked for me. Thank you!

After deleting the song from the music manager app on my desktop, I cleared the cache on the app on my iPhone, closed it and when I reopened it I clicked "refresh library". The artist was gone.

I did the same online too. I went to settings, then clicked Refresh Library. When I went back to My Library, the artist was gone.
