I was always under the impression that REPEAT meant that songs were allowed to be repeated within the same playlist... Maybe Im wrong...

This is possible...I myself had "Repeat" turned off before I saw an earlier post in this forum that suggested what I wrote in my last post, which is when I turned it on. However, the point remains that regardless of whether "Repeat" is turned on or off, songs are repeated at an annoying rate.

This is true... I am considering using Rdio until this situation is rectified.

here's an idea: i'm posting a link to this thread on spotify's twitter account. if everybody who reads this does the same it will eventually get their attention. this is too big of a problem to go unnoticed for so long. i have an 8 hour playlist that will repeat songs within the same half hour. i love you spotify... but come on

I've emailed support@spotify.com and this was their (useless) reaction. No time/date for when this will be resolved. no acknowledgement of the issue, no workaround.

 

What i DID see is that they where hiring a lot of programmers :)     That soulds like a good idea!

EVERY other Player is able to do it right.. Why isn't this faboulous Spotify ??
I mean, I really LOVE this thing!
Not using it for long, but am totally addicted..

I have the same problem and assumed it was a marketing move to get people to pay for spotify premium. Is this happening to anyone with premiuim?

Please fix this I have a playlist of over 9,000 songs and I should not be hearing or seeing the same artist appear in the play queue every 3rd or 4th song.

Im just replying to support this thread! Because shuffle is broken! I use spotify daily @ work for almost 2 years now. I have been listening to same music day in and day out drives me mad. Needs to get this fixed i cant even remember my other 1000 songs anymore because i never get the chance to listen to them anymore because the shuffle creates the same pattern of music..


Fix this in an instant!!! 


PEACE
