My Question or Issue

 I was having trouble playing songs in general, then after I restarted the app my shuffle play button is completely missing. Most of the reason I use the app is to have a shuffled playlist so this is kind of ruining it for me. Any advice?

Hey @Kinderland, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!


If you're on the free tier you're tied to a shuffle mode, only 15 playlists can be played on demand including your Daily Mixes, Release Radar and Discover Weekly palylists.

That's why it says Play instead of Shuffle Play as it will still play in shuffle either way in other ares of the app.


However, if you would like, you can submit your idea about changing this button in Idea Submissions board.

Hope it helps :)

I wish that were the case. however the button usually appears as shuffle
play but in this case when it just says play, it plays the songs in the
order of the list of songs. any more suggestions?
