The issue boils down to the view is diluted, imho, with things of absolutely no value. Every track I touch and play no matter the duration is listed. As soon as play is initiated on a track it is included; so you will get a situation where the play activity will not match History.
This happens when sampling tracks to see what I want to play now, or while building a Playlist, or prepping a DJ show, or sampling a new band. If I am not playing a song long enough to satisfy inclusion in History, I certainly do not want to see it in Recently Played. I sift through a ton of musical detritus to find stuff I want to hear. And things I reject immediately are done so because I don’t want to listen to them.
Some suggestions that would help things out:
- Allow customization of what Played displays (tracks, albums, compositions, radio, etc), that way I could turn off showing tracks.
- Only include tracks played long enough for inclusion in History.
Examples my Recently Played :
Played just yesterday afternoon
From one evening
