And in mid-2018, this issue is back. So frustrating. I create long playlists to keep spotify from repeating too much, but sometimes I don't want o stick to a theme, so when i play my saved collection (which is near the limit btw) it keeps playing the same 50 songs over and over. Mostly these are recently added songs. And guess what, IT STICKS TO THE SAME GENRE AND THEME, JUST WHAT I TRY TO PREVENT. 😠

completley agree! been premium since 2012 with a playist i’ve been building almost just as long. just realizing i’m not hearing about 60% of the playlist, ever, when i hit shuffle. google led me here to confirm i’m not crazy. grrr!

Are you trying to get Shuffle to work on your mobile?

No, I haven't tried it on a mobile yet. The results I get are on a PC.

                                    Quality check

 

To check that your Windows Spotify player is installed correctly, try the following.

 

* Sort your long playlist by TrackTitle.

 

* DoubleClick the third track of your playlist to start the play of the third track of your playlist.

 

* Watch your PlayQueue and turn your shuffle Off and then On and then Off . . . .

 

* As you watch, does your PlayQueue alternate between [alphabeticalSort] and [random] where the [random] contains TrackNames from both the beginning and end of your playlist?

This isn’t a Windows issue. It happens on all platforms. There are over 49 pages of complaints here. Why aren’t you addressing the actual issue. Clearly a bug in Spotify.
