I believe that the client(s) (I'm including the mobile clients with this), should have a 'Random Start' button that will start a random song from the playlist, and then continue playing the playlist as normal.
At the moment, I am just randomly scrolling and then blindly selecting a song, which takes same - would be so much easier with a button 😛
According to a few people the is a feature that allows you to double click the playlist to start it randomly, I believe this is unintuitive and I almost always have the playlist open on my screen as well. Also, this doesn't work for playlist folders...
