Shuffle a playlist?

Hey, I can't seem to find any button on Spotify saying SHUFFLE - how do you random play your tracks / playlists?

Look at the bottom right hand corner of the client:

Re: Shuffle a playlist?

Finally worked this out. Could not understand why I could not shuffle a playlist on my iPad mini. This is how to do it. When playing a track from a playlist tap on the double arrow next to the small album art work, this will give you a full screen artwork. Just above the pause button there are two icons one is a shuffle icon (it is hard to see as I was trying to shuffle tracks when I was outside and could not see the icon due to sunlight). Tap on it and it lights up and then tracks shuffle from a playlist. Happy days no more listending to playlists in alphabetical order.

@kjm322 - Sounds like the web player, you are right it is pretty tricky to find. That feedback has been passed over to the web guys. ;) 

 

@Caz59 - You can star an entire album on iPad by pressing the "+" icon at the top of the album page. There is no easy way to star an entire playlist or artist page I'm afraid.

Re: Shuffle a playlist?

How do you Shuffle the entire playlist rather than just one artist?

Re: Shuffle a playlist?

Re: Shuffle a playlist?

You can only shuffle tracks, not playlists at the moment although this has been requested. You can work round this by copying everything into one playlist although that isn't terribly elegant :(

Re: Shuffle a playlist?

If you star all tracks, could you then play random from Stared Tracks? And is there an easy way to star bulk tracks?

Re: Shuffle a playlist?

On the desktop client, you can show all your music by selecting "Library" in the left panel then you can select all the tracks and put them in a new playlist. This can be the starred playislt, star them all or whatever. You can just play from there with shuffle on too.

 

There's no way to do this easily in the web player or on mobile versions though.

Re: Shuffle a playlist in Android?

I looked everywere but there. When you can see the track time bar (whatever). Just like the desktop player.
