Shuffle icon showing as active involuntarily

Shuffle icon showing as active involuntarily

Hi everyone! I have noticed an error when navigating a very specific around the artist page. If the path is followed, the shuffle button turns on without me activating it, and while it is showing active it won't actually shuffle songs. So it is just a minor visual bug.


Here is the path I am taking:

  1. Start playing a song from a Playlist (without shuffle on)
  2. Navigate to Artist page > Show all Discography
  3. Play a song from the Discography list

In my example here you will see it happen. After navigating back to the playlist and playing another song, the shuffle button will not show as active anymore. I cannot replicate on other devices such as phone, since desktop is the only view that shows songs in a list from Discography.

Hi @tomxluong,


Thanks for sharing this!


It does look like a visual issue, since the songs that come up next in the queue don't seem to be shuffled. I'm unable to reproduce this behavior on Windows though. Could you check if the same thing happens on the Web Player as well? If you haven't already, try logging out and signing back in to your account - this will trigger an internal refresh of the app that may help here. It's also worth performing a clean reinstall of Spotify.


If the issue persists, please share the exact version of the app you're running.
