Playlist Specific Settings

Status: Case Closed

I'd like the ability to apply settings to specific playlists and not others. The use case is as follows:

 

I have a playlist of "ambient sounds." It is a collection of several types; crackling fires, trains passing, ocean waves, etc. I play this on shuffle and I enable the cross-fade setting because these sounds are disparatre and an abrupt change ruins the soothing nature of the playlist.

When I switch to music, podcasts or other spoken word, I do not want to use the cross-fade feature because it can cut off important parts of the track.

 

I'd like to suggest applying the cross-fade setting at a playlist level, rather than the application as a whole. Because other usere may want to apply other setting combinations to their playlists, I would expand the request to all settings or a key set to be applies on a playlist level.

I've come across other shuffle related ideas, but I haven't found any that match what I would like to see. I'd love the ability for the Shuffle setting to be linked to each playlist instead of globally. For example, when I'm listening at work, I like to have the playlist be random, where Shuffle is set to ON. But when I'm driving home with my son in the car who likes to listen to specific songs in a specific order from a movie soundtrack, I have to turn Shuffle OFF for the whole account to be able to more easily find his songs. Then the next day at work I have to turn it back ON.

 

If each playlist had it's own Shuffle setting, I could leave Shuffle ON on my playlist, and leave it OFF for his.

 

Thanks,

Austin

Marked as new idea.

This makes complete sense to me. I have to uncheck and restart albums all the time, additionally I have work related playlists that I'd love shuffled.

 

I've wanted more inteligent shuffle behavior for a while but 50 votes a year might be a high bar for a feature people can't conseve of wanting, but if they had would make implict sense.

Don't let the low votes fool you. This has been requested in various forms for years now—none have received enough votes though. 

 

I'm sure some people shuffle albums but I imagine the vast majority of users do not. Or at least not intentionally! Attaching shuffle as a local property of the playlist seems the cleanest solution.
