Shuffle play skips to "suggested songs"

Shuffle play skips to "suggested songs"

When I press "shuffle play" on an album, it doesn't play the album, it just plays "suggested songs". Same happens with an artist.

Hello @SuperSuit12

Unfortunately this is one of the limitations of Spotify Free on mobile:

On mobile, you get ad-supported, shuffle-only access on compatible devices. This means:

  • You can’t stream specific songs on demand, and you’re only able to skip a track 6 times per hour.
  • Sometimes you'll hear a mix of similar tracks from other artists to what you're playing.

It does not play an artist's music or an album at all. The songs are nothing like what I listen to and seem to be just what's popular. It is not shuffle play. If I wanted what's popular I'd turn on a real radio. This is not working as intended or someone doesn't know what shuffle play means.  Others report the same issue with playlists, though my only playlist works fine.
