[Discover] Play random Songs from complete Spotify Catalogue

The idea is especially for people who love music, without focusing on a special genre. An "Ultimate Shuffle Button" will pick random songs from all songs available on Spotify. You can explore songs, you might never get in touch with and learn new music - or just skip if you don't like it. This function helps you to just try out something new and find out about varieties in music.

 

Edit: All Audiobooks should be excluded from this function!

Hey @PHISCHY thanks for coming to the Spotify Ideas Exchange with your idea. Right now we don't have plans for an ultimate shuffle button so we're marking this as 'Not Right Now'. However, we'll keep an eye on this ideas it grows and gets more votes and comments. We'll then keep passing the feedback on to the appropriate teams. 

 

Thanks!

Love this idea! A shuffle button that pulls from all playlists. I need this for driving in the car!

So it picks a random song from the whole Spotify library? That's a cool idea, I need this function =)

Exactly. Like the one marked previous idea somebody had in 2012 (or so). You press the button and you have no clue what song will come, you don't know which genre/categorie. You will learn a lot of different songs you might never explore, those you don't like, you just skip. I'd love to have that function. Even looking in a specific genre is hard on Spotify, because you will only find the popular artists, or probably some newcomers. Some genres you don't even find, or I didn't find on Spotify, although they exist. So you would have to search very detailed, but the problem with genres you don't know about is, that you will only find the big artists. This button should be fine for people who just want to try out new things and who are openmindet and tolerant to all types of music.

A 'mid level' option to shuffle from all of your own playlists would be great too (if it doesn't already exist!).

This option with a filter on some choosable genres would be nice! :)

This was possible until about a year ago. You could add all playlists to a "my music" folder, and just shuffle that one. Now however, you can't click on a playlist and view the songs as if the were in the same playlist.

 

I really miss the possibility to click on the "my music" folder, and just press e.g. "ent" to get to "enter sandman". Because I knew that the song was in one of my playlists, choosing the top folder would guarantee that i would find the song. Now i have to either search through all of spotify's songs, or try to remember the correct playlist.
