I have a similar problem, but it turns off when I switch manually to a new song. For example if I really want to listen to Earfquake by Tyler the Creator and then turn in on shuffle and play a couple more songs but then I get an itch to listen to Complicated by Heavens to Betsy it turns shuffle off and I have to turn it back on. It's annoying.
This totally makes no sense. Why a hidden disable when I still want to listen to shuffle. Most of the people want to keep shuffle mode enabled, when they skip a song or jump to another. If I count the times I want to disable shuffle the same time a choose a song while shuffle is enabled, the result ist 0.000~0.
Its totally bad UX to force the user to disable shuffle mode just by choosing another song.
@spotify: What about a shuffle + lock icon as 3rd state next to no-shuffle and weird-shuffle mode. The multiple states are learned behavior by the users. This could lead to satisfaction on multiple sides.
The desktop app isn't disabling shuffle when I'm clicking on another song while shuffle is active. Pls fix this bug.
That's a different scenario. Skipping a song while on shuffle has never disabled shuffle. It still shuffles after skipping for me, both on Windows and on Android. Manually selecting a song is a different story.
