Hey @Seanban,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

If you're on the free version of Spotify, you'll be able to pick and play tracks as well as play tracks without the Shuffle mode only on selected playlists (with some slight differences on Desktop). Feel free to take a look at this support site article if you'd like to know more about the type of listening experience you can access with the free service in comparison to Premium.

 

If there's more you'd like to be helped with, feel free to reply and let us know what that's about in greater detail.

 

We're looking forward to your update and we're here to help with anything else too!

Got it @jameselgringo!

 

You should be able to play a whole album without shuffle when you open it and press the first song in the list instead of the green Shuffle Play button, you don't need to queue it.

 

You're right that there isn't a way to remove all the songs from the mobile queue at once, but can choose the last track in the queue and skip it to get rid of the queue faster.

 

You can also leave a +Vote here if you'd like to see the feature implemented.

 

Does this work better for you? If you have trouble, feel free to send us a screen recording of what happens when you try that and we'll take a closer look.

 

We hope this info helps. We'll be here if you have any other questions.

Hey there @Lehut,

 

Thanks for getting back to us 🙂

 

Can you give these steps a go and run a clean reinstall? By doing that you can make sure the app is up-to-date and the cache is not causing this issue.

 

If that doesn't do the trick, you can log into your account on another device. Does the issue persist? That way we can see if it's a device-related issue.

 

You can also send us a screenshot of what you're seeing. We'll investigate this further.

 

Keep us in the loop! If you have more questions, we are here for you.

Hi Mario, I'm on a premium family membership for about a year and it has been working fine. I don't know if something has changed but the problem only started recently. Thanks, Seán.

Hey @Seanban,

 

Thanks for keeping us in the loop and sharing this info!

 

Would you now mind letting us know a bit more about this issue you're experiencing? For example, does it happen only with your own Spotify account? Does it also happen to the other members of your Family plan? Does it happen when you're listening to a specific playlist? 

 

If it's happening with your account, right now and as a first step it'd be good to double-check that Shuffle play was not accidentally activated using the Now Playing bar. To do so and eventually turn it off, feel free to take a look at the info featured in this support page article.

 

Let us know how it goes. We're looking forward to your update and we're here to help with anything else too!

Re: Album songs won't play in order

Visitor

I had a release come out today but it is a cover song from 1997, because of the date of the original song, it's now showing all the way at the bottom of my page.  Is there anyway to arrange the albums or songs on the artist page to get these tracks at the top of the artists page to be seen?

Hey @thewaterboy,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us.

 

Currently there is no option to change the order of songs or albums at the artists page. As a workaround we'd suggest you add the song or the songs from the album in another playlist. Then you can arrange their order with the steps mentioned here.

 

You can also check these steps on how to create an idea. That way other users can also support your idea. Rest assured that he higher the number of votes an idea gets, the more likely it is for it to be implemented.   

 

Hope this was helpful for you. If you have questions, you know where to find us.

I have premium.

 

To play an album IN ITS ORIGINAL ORDER OF TRACKS, I have to "add to queue".  Yesterday I was listening to an album that I love.  I listened halfway through.

 

Today, on my Android, I wanted to listen to a completely different vibe from a playlist.  I hit shuffle play and one song from the playlist played, then yesterdays album resumed.  I clearly wanted to listen to today's playlist, and there was no way to automatically listen to it in the order I saved the songs, either!

 

I had to open my desktop computer to be able to listen to the queue.  I was able to shuffle play then tell it to play on my phone app.  Ridiculous.  I wish I could use my Google Play Music interface (which is going away) to control my Spotify music, because I rarely feel in control of MY MUSIC on Spotify phone app (not much better from the computer).

Hey folks!

 

Thanks for reaching out, we'd love to help you out further.

 

@jameselgringo just to confirm that we understand your issue fully - you're not able to play albums in order even when you've made sure that your queue is clear and that you've turned shuffle off on your desktop app? Does this also happen on mobile when you don't have queued up songs?

 

@Lehut we'd recommend clearing your queue first and giving this a shot by clicking in the frist song in the album. If you issue persists, we'll need to know on what device this is happening and if you experience this only with albums and not with normal playlists.

 

If you could provide us with a screen recording of this issue it will also help our investigation a lot.

 

We'll be on the lookout for your reply.
