I don't understand why this change can't be reversed. However, if as you say you can't implement a change without raising a new idea, how did this change to auto shuffle ever get implemented in the first place? Your reply sounds like total nonsense to me.
However, in the interests of following your (rather strange) process, I have voted on Mdriscoll33's idea.
Can anyone else reading this thread also vote on it and perhaps it can get some traction?
This is a terrible user experience and a stupid setting. Not sure why anyone would enable this in the first place and call it a feature. Spotify, you’re already on my list of things to get rid of. But for a lack of time, I’d have moved to a different platform. This is going to expedite finding a better option. Revert back.
Oh, and I joined the community just to post this. Moderator, stop replying by calling this is a feature and fix it.
Let's try to make this clear, I have this Alexa thing and also a premium account. If I try to listen to a Pink Floyd album (and I love them, so it happens very often) it makes me listen to shuffled songs, which is not just boring, but also useless in the specific case. Now, is it faster for me to return my Amazon Echo environment or unsubscribe from Spotify premium?
Thank you for posting the voting link - created an account voted, and posted here as this is driving me crazy. I'm working on testing out other music services now.. Hopefully this gets fixed before I move.
Odd they change the behaviour on a whim, yet changing it back is a "feature request".
