I have several songs in the Play Next queue.

I am not playing anything at the moment. How do I play the queue. Clicking play prompts me with a dialog asking if I want to overwrite the plainest queue or play the song selected in iTunes, but I just want the play next queue

1 Answer 1


Open the up next queue and double-click on the title of the first song in the queue.

(In iTunes 12) the up next queue button looks like this: up next queue button

It is in the top right corner of the playing now area of iTunes.

  • I do that and nothing happens - if I click on the ... I get various go toe and play next but it does not start playing

  • doubleclick works for me. On the song name, not on any of the buttons on the sides.
