Like "Joe" says, when I make my playlists I always put the songs in a "general" playlist & also my 'genre' list. Eg. I've put Iggy Azaleas' "Fancy" under both my "general" playlist (or All Songs as mine's called), but also in my R&B/Hip Hop list. I do this for all songs I really like but also some songs/artists can cross-genres (be put under both "Rock" & "Rap" for eg.), so when I get bored from my smaller playlists, I just go to 'All Songs", hit the shuffle button (as in the solution), & voilà! It's not ideal as a basic member due to swipe limits though. Man I love Spotify.
> Hi maahuum, > Sorry to go very basic, so you've gone to 'playlist', selected which playlist you want to listen to, clicked on 'shuffle play' at the top. Then did you click on the song playing (at the bottom of the screen - where the song, artist and play/pause button is just above the bottom menu list). That takes you to a screen where there should be an album cover for the song, & pause, backwards/forwards etc. Down on the bottom left of the screen there should be the shuffle "button" (a little icon of two arrows in a crossed position). Make sure this is highlighted green for shuffling your playlist. Otherwise it should be grey for following the order it is in/non-shuffle. It should work now. Just swipe through a few songs to make sure it's shuffling. > Sorry to be so simplistic, I've just started from the beginning so we don't miss anything. Hope this helps. > > Corie
