My Question or Issue

Every time I start up my Spotify app and select a song to play, shuffle automatically turns on. This is especially annoying when I am trying to listen to an album all the way through or listen to a playlist I have created. I do not like having to fumble with my phone while I am driving as it is dangerous. Any help with this issue will be greatly appreciated.

I wonder if it may be related to alarm clock using Spotify (I mean, I configured my alarm to play song from Spotify). I turned all those off now, switching to standard Android alarm tunes, I'll see.

After I turned off the alarm/deleted them, it stopped doing the shuffle thing for me.

Your reply reminded me to share the results as well 🙂

 

It worked for me too. I stopped using Spotify song as the alarm sound and the shuffle did not turn on even once. Some time later I set a song as alarm sound back again and yup, shuffle magically turned on again, so I permanently stopped using Spotify for alarm and I am no longer bothered by the issue.

Hi there,

I have a similar problem and it is a bit aggravating. It happens both on my phone (android) and my desktop (linux) version. I can turn shuffle on and off with no issue. The problem is that it appears to come back at random (without me selecting it - I  hate shuffle, I think an album should be listened at in the order initially designed by the artist).

I have actually just re-installed on both my phone and my desktop, as suggested. Will let you know if that solves the issue.

Cheers,

Francois

Hey there @moseph88

 

Help’s here!

 

If you're having trouble turning off the Shuffle play mode on Spotify you might need to perform a clean reinstall of the app on the device where you experience the issue. This ensures you a fresh start with Spotify by getting the latest app version with all necessary updates.  

 

If this persists, check if any power saving or data cleaning settings run active on your device. Make sure you disable these since such features can often prevent the app from operating at full capacity.

 

Keep us posted! We'll be happy to lend a hand if you need more help.

Unfortunately this did not solve the problem. I do see that this is an ongoing issue among other users. Are there any other possible solutions? Thank you for your response!

Hey @moseph88 and @frigaut

 

Thanks for keeping us in the loop. 

 

In case you experience the issue across different devices it's a good idea to check if you observe the same when using a different network. If it works with another connection, it's best to contact the service provider of the original network for more information.

 

Another thing worth trying is how this goes when logging in to a different Spotify account on the affected device. If it works with another account, follow the steps in this Spotify Answer on how to start a new account without losing your saved music.  

 

Let us know how you get on! We'll be here in case you need any further help with this.
