Shuffle from entire library

A few versions ago, it was possible to shuffle play from one's entire library. Does anyone know how to do this now that there is no 'library' view.

Following on from this, what is the difference between the 'starred' playlist and 'your music: songs'?

Thanks

Hi, welcome to the spotify community! Hope all is well in the land of *insert country here*.

 

You can shuffle play your entire music collection through the songs tab.

There is a difference between Starred and Your Songs. If you were to add and entire album to Your Music, every single song within that album is added to Your songs. Think of the Starred playlist as truly some of the greatest songs that you finely pick.

Hi @JoeThomas

 

How do I achieve the same, but with my playlists as opposed to 'saved songs'?

Sad to see this still isnt re-implemented.  I saw a few Ideas made for this but they were all closed and marked "duplicate".  Yet i cant find the "original" idea to give kudos to it.  The heck??

 

Whats the point of even allowing me to play songs already on my PC if i cant shuffle all?  And why was this feature removed in the first place??

 

EDIT: Found it.  Apparently they dont want to bring back this function right now??  Bizarre.  Anyway if you want it back someday still vote: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Bring-back-the-library/idi-p/738823

Under the “Library” tab if you select the “Playlists” menu you can then select the “Liked Songs” playlist — From there you can shuffle through every song that was previously saved under the “Songs” menu.

We could always do this by shuffling the Songs list. This doesn't add anything new unless I'm misunderstanding something.

 

I'd love to see a feature where we can shuffle our entire library. Liked songs + playlists as well.
