My Question or Issue

The shuffle button in playlists has changed. Now theres the button to turn of shuffle next to the original shuffle button. The original one can now also only be shuffled ONCE. If you tap it again it just pauses the current song. So the shuffle button has become a glorified play button that shuffles only the first time you press it.

 

Normally I press the shuffle button multiple times until I start the playlist with a good song, but now I'm forced to start with the one that it shuffles the first time. If I now press it again it just pauses the song.

 

I also asked somebody else about it and they said that they once had the same problem, but it got reversed for them. Weird.

Hey @Marlon-,

 

Thanks for posting in the Community.

 

It seems you've discovered a feature we're currently testing as we're constantly trying to improve the user experience in the app and we will make sure to pass your feedback to the right team. 

 

With the Shuffle and Play button being separated, you can always start the playlist in Shuffle mode by activating the Shuffle button and clicking on a random song in the playlist.

 

Hope this clears thing up,

 

Cheers!

What if we don’t like it, how do we give feedback? I hate the change and would prefer the old system

Hey @DarkJay,

 

Your feedback has already been passed on to the right folks! 🙂

And in regards to your original conundrum:
For the time being, even in Shuffle Mode we can still skip any song by tapping the button 'Next'. It will jump to another randomized song.
It's not ideal but it's the only suitable workaround we have for this at the moment.
