Answer:

Shuffling is the easiest way to get a random mix of songs. Here's how to toggle Shuffle on or off for your devices.

 

Desktop

 

To turn on Shuffle in desktop, hit the crossed arrows icon just left of the back skip button in the Now Playing bar. It'll be highlighted green with a green dot underneath if it's on.

To turn it off, just click it again so it appears gray.

 

Mobile

 

You can hit the green 'Shuffle Play ' icon to start listening to a playlist, album, or artist profile in Shuffle.

If you have Premium you can tap on any track from an album or playlist and the songs will start playing in the order they are listed. 

 

You can also turn Shuffle off and on from the Now Playing view. It'll be highlighted green with a green dot underneath if it's on.

In case you don't see the Shuffle icon, check the context menu (the 3 dots at the top right) for more options.
