[Amazon Echo] Stop auto shuffling Songs when you request an Artist via Alexa

You changed the setting so that Alexa auto shuffles songs by artist when you use your voice to start spotify.  For some reason, I have to request this as a new idea for you to reverse the setting.   You already can tell alexa to shuffle when you request an artist.  Why would it auto shuffle and force you to interrupt the music you just started to play?

Please reverse.  We were totally satisfied with Spotify and Alexa until the shuffle feature.  No longer.  We've been looking at other streaming services for the last hour. 


What a rubbish idea, change this back please, its a deal breaker for me I'll need to find a new provider if this continues my home experience is ruined



Agreed with the rest.  Change it back or will find another provider.


Are you guys serious? I don't want this shuffle-"feature". Make it optional or bring back a change in the options but the way you did is just **bleep**. Thank you for nothing! And now go ahead and fix it please!


because of the auto shuffle function it is not possible to start an audiobook with Alexa. Please change this.


Hello Spotify, have the same problem. Please fix it! :S


Why do we have to vote on something you broke



This change has completely broken our experience with Spotify on Alexa which is the primary way we consumer music at home. Please change this back and do more customer research before making such a significant change to a key user scenario.


How do we turn off this auto shuffle feature?  It sort of defeats the purpose of using Alexa if I have to go into the app beforehand.  


Terrible Idea! I would be amazed if a single user likes it. No need for voting.
