On Amazon music now for a trial for for 3 months for free.

 

You can tell Alexa to play the top ten of your chosen artist, it doesnt shuffle on Amazon music however if you just ask it to play songs from an artist it will shuffle the same as Spotify, if you tell it to play the greatest hits on Amazon it does but shuffles not from top down. I have been told you can stop the shuffling I just need to find out how or if you can do this.

So far the music is about the same for quality and content however I think the algorithms are better on spotify for suggested playlists. The problem is even with a family Spotify account its mine on the Echos and the kids mess up the algorithms due to their selections. It would be nice to be able to have each of their echos with their own Spotify accounts on them. Overall I think the problem is with Amazon, its control system still needs improving considering how long the Gen 1 echo came out.

Not listening to this type of feedback is going to harm Spotifys company perception. Just wait until theres a viable rival. Then you'll have to stop resting on your laurels. 

Spotify is broken. You ask for songs by an artist, it plays some b-side shite nobody ever heard of. This is not a feature.

Start listening.

Same problem here:

Every evening when my kids want to listen to some stories before going to bed I need to log off of the Spotify app, log in with the Spotify account I created for Alexa, disable shuffle and log off and in again to my personal account. 

I have now started my 3 months amazon music trial. 

 

It is sad to see how a once promising European company loses it’s mojo and once again the money goes to the US. 

 

What really annoys me are the standard template answers from the moderators. I am

paying 15€ for a perfectly scalable product and the first time I really need something I get this low level service.

This auto shuffling is really getting on my nerves. Spotify please reverse the changes!

This is making me go insane. I can't believe how long this has been the case for...

 

"I want to listen to this artist, and by the way, could you please play a huge selection of their least popular songs and random live recordings as I dont really enjoy being alive and my time is entirely unimportant..."

 

Is this a genuine quote from the person you asked before you implemented this feature?

 

Fix it.

Is it even possible we don't get a reply from any Spotify employee?
Is it so little they care about their customers??
Is it so difficult to understand that a regression happened?
Even if they believe there is value in giving the user the possibility to shuffle, why on earth that should be a default??
I basically stopped asking Alexa to play specific artists as I only get the most obscure and useless songs of them...
I think it's time to move to Amazon Music, but I do believe is so silly to not react to such a simple regression...

Exactly.  I read somewhere that if an idea gets 500 votes they talk about it at a meeting.  Other than that tough luck, but thanks for your $$.

Did you ever move services? Which one works best? This spotify shuffle thing is madness.
