i've noticed this and read this thread - and have come up with an observation. If i add a new ARTIST to my playlist - they won't get played on shuffle, until i manually choose to listen to them. Once i do that - the artist gets thrown in the mix. This may just be coincidence - but I added 7 or 8 albums by different artists recently, and only the artists that i had previously listened to came up on shuffle.
Please please please sort this!!! I have over 1500 songs on my playlist and I listen to the same 100 over and over again, it's so annoying especially as I have spotify on all day long! Please please please!!
I have the same problem. extremly extremly annoying. I have a couple hundred songs and I listen while i play video games, its really annoying when the same 10 songs play over and over again, after I spend so much time adding to my playlist.
I too have noticed this annoying glitch. It seems that Spotify repeats and repeats the same songs over and over. They should implement an option to have a playlist shuffled randomly before it even begins playing... Or at least have it where if you click the shuffle button it randomly shuffles the playlist before the songs begin. I thought I was the only one that noticed this...
No, I don't think the latest update fixed it...I thought I heard a song repeat in a playlist of over 900 tracks, and so I checked the Play Queue "History" and found a song repeated twice within an hour's period of time.
(For the record, my settings are "Shuffle" and "Repeat" both on, which to my knowledge should mean that ALL tracks in the playlist must play once before any can be repeated again.)
