[Queue] Shuffle queued Tracks

It would be useful if the shuffle button would also changed the order of queued songs too.

I like to randomly add songs/albums to a playlist of songs I want to hear now but it's annoying shuffle is ignored when you add songs in this manner and having to create a playlist just to shuffel negates the point of a queue system.

I too miss the possibility to play streaming music in shuffle mode from queue. Please fix!


Agree with Scott!  Queue == Playlist.

The play queue should not be treated any differently than a temporary playlist.  Random feature should work ALL of the time. Same goes for repeat.

Boggles why this doesn't work, why would shuffle be a dead button while playing the queue


+1 This should be a standard feature. 


Really miss this too.


+1 please


This can't be that hard to integrate


+1, agreed! This is driving me crazy and would be a very useful feature as I often use the queue to listen to new music before organizing it into appropriate playlists.


I'm DJing a spur-of-the-moment christmas queue for a party with my classmates, and I reeeally wish that shuffle could work on the queue. I now realize I could have put things into a playlist, then shuffled that, but I didn't think of it until coming here and thinking about why the product team might argue against the idea. But, I started playing when people asking for music, then adding from various christmas playlists ... so now I don't want to change it over to a playlist. 

Anyway, thanks for a good product overall, but this would be super nice-to-have. Also, thanks for finally letting us remove songs from discovery weekly! That started here, and I am so glad to have that ability now. :)
