First time trying. Have a solution!!! Just tried and works!! Was a fluke that I figured out.

 

If u have an existing playlist you want to randomize in the actual playlist do the following.

1. Hightlight 1 song in the playlist.

2. Left click Edit and click on 'Select All'

3. Right click on one of the songs and select 'Share'

4. Click on Copy Song Links

3. Go to web and type in Textmechanic.com

4. Paste your list into the Textmechanic window.

5. Click on random. Do this several times to really randomize the song list.

6. Select all and copy.

7. You have two options in Spotify. I do option 'A'

    A. Go into the playlist in Spotify u copied and delete all of the songs accept for ONE            SONG. Won't work if you do not have any songs in playlist yet. You then go to Edit          and select Paste.

    B. Create a new playlist. Place ONE song in it and then go to Edit and select Paste.

Sorry but this simply does not work.  I have a list of track URL's from a playlist but can not find a way to copy them into a new playlist.  I had copied them out to randomize them because spotify continues to fail to have a randomize all feature.

Have to have at least one song in a playlist before u paste in. There is no ability to paste if there is not at least a song already in the existing play list u want to paste into. Hope this helps.

Hello @bkstober

 

Welcome to the community,  Sorry to hear about your problem.

Here is a simple way to do what you seem to expect:

1 - In the playlist you work on : select all the tracks you want copy ==> CTRL/CMD + C

2 - Open any Text Editor : paste your selection ==> CTRL/CMD + V

3 - In the Text Editor, Move randomly any line the way you want

4 - Once it's done : select all the tracks

5 - Open an empty playlist : Paste your selection ==> CTRL/CMD + V

6 - It's done you have a new playlist with original tracks in a random order.

 

Note : This has been tested and done many times in the Spotify Desktop under Windows. But I guess it works the same on Mac

 

Good luck 🙂

Hi, thanks for your response, simply doesn't work. See my other response
on this thread, which has a notepad file of my track url's attached (as a
jpeg). I've tried a complete uninstall and reinstall of Spotify with no
success.

Edit CTRL-V not working.

So I've done some testing and I can take an existing playlist, cut out the tracks into Notepad, select them all there copy them and then paste them back into the now-empty playlist.  Works fine.  COuld it be that because my favorites tracks were albums, thatcopy / paste of albums doesn't work?

So this doesn't work : paste of "https://open.spotify.com/track/6U6pzv1OmytAtbYujDLMmM?si=YD0QMz_WTkuIQfkH4b9KDA" but this does work : "https://open.spotify.com/track/6U6pzv1OmytAtbYujDLMmM" .  One song is added in this later case. 

I think the community should know this with regards to randomization, because playlist constructed from albums can not be randomized in the manner described above. Would love to find a work around because otehrwise I've got roughly 1500 albums to individually cut and paste to recreate this play list.
