JavaScript remove an element from array | 4 Ways with examples

You can remove elements from Array using a pop method to remove elements from the end, shift method removes from the beginning, or splice method to remove from the middle.

Ways to JavaScript remove an element from the array

  • pop() method – removes from the End of an Array
  • shift() method- removes from the beginning of an Array
  • splice() method- removes from a specific Array index
  • filter() method- allows you to programmatically remove elements from an Array

Let’s see the example

Unfortunately there is not a simple Array.remove method. Let’s see example of with above methods.

1. pop() method

The pop method removes the last element of the array, returns that element, and updates the length property.

2. shift() method

The shift method works much like the pop method except it removes the first element of a JavaScript array instead of the last.

3. splice() method

The splice method can be used to add or remove elements from an array.

JS remove two elements starting from position three (zero based index):

Output: 1,2,5,6,7,8,9,0

4. filter() method

filter method creates a new array. filter() does not mutate the array on which it is called, but returns a new array.

Output: 6,7,8,9
