[Android] Shuffle turns ON automatically when selecting new song from the playlist


Shuffle mode turns on automatically when selecting new song from the playlist.


Steps to reproduce:

I had the shuffle turned off and selected a new song from the same playlist, now the shuffle mode is on, without me pressing the shuffle button.


OS: Android 12 (S2B3.220205.007.A1)

Device: Google Pixel 4a

Spotify Version:


I see a lot of other issues reported related to shuffle, please look into this and fix the app! It's not a major issue but it is annoying.
