Tech companies like Spotify employ lots of bright young things but clearly none are reading these posts closely. What is also clear is that Spotify employees are not using Spotify through Alexa themseleves. Otherwise, they would surely know how incredibly annoying it is to be forced to listen to an artist's B-side tracks constantly and this ridiculous forced shuffle siuation would have been rectified.
Before the change to forced shuffle, there were a few lone voices moaning about hearing an artists's most popular songs everytime Alexa played an artist via Spotify. However, it only takes seconds to see that those lone voices are far outweighed by the many many voices critisicing the enforced shuffling of songs which now occurs when using Spotify via Alexa.
If Spotify doesnt listen up, they will lose market share to Amazon and Apple music. I am switching to Apple home pod and Apple music when I move home in a couple of months. Spotify are clearly not listening or cannot control Amazon so one can only vote with one's feet. Bye bye spotify x
Exactly. I posted several weeks ago about the shuffle button being grayed out on mobile. They replied that "the right folks" are looking into it. I have to assume the wrong folks are working on it considering the button is still grayed out.
Just went onto Spotify help to ask the question and here is the response:
We're always testing things by adding or removing features to make Spotify better overall. We can't say if or when any specific features will be back, but as soon as we’ve got anything to announce we’ll let everyone know over on the Spotify Community at http://community.spotify.com/.
