[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.

The entire Shuffle feature is one of the worst parts of Spotify.  Music players have shuffled randomly for decades.  Why is it so hard for Spotify?


Why not be honest with your customers?


I was surprised this wasn't already implemented.  Please make it so.


3 years man, 3 years....


Weird this hasn't been done yet - get to it Spotify!


It is however, possible to get it done - just add the albums/songs to a random playlist, clear your queue and then shuffle play the playlist, it'll create a random generated play queue based on the playlist.


An annoying workaround, though.


Come on Spotify. Your users that pay for your service have waited for years for proper SHUFFLE!?!? 

I just spent 10 minutes with the Windows client trying to shuffle a queue. Not possible. WTF!? If I turn it into a playlist? Not possible! Double WTF!

Good idea? It's completely ridiculous this isn't a basic feature. 




A suggestion: don't really shuffle the play queue, just jump to a random location in the queue (like when playing a playlist in shuffle mode). This way, the shuffle button would work consistently across the app.
