[Following] Shuffle Songs from followed Artists

This feature has already been suggested a few times since 2014 (maybe even before that)! 
It's a feature on iTunes since when Britney Spears was a hit (the first time)!
Winamp did it way before that (remember Winamp!?). 


It's 2018… Almost 19 and we're still unable to play songs from every artist we follow in shuffle. I don't want to (and can't even) save every song from every artist on a playlist. Who'd do that?! 

It seems like such a small thing to implement that not doing it seems almost lazy.
I KNOW you aren't lazy. Pleaaaaaase don't let me dooooown!
Thanks 🙂

If I can scroll through my list of followed artists and stop randomly to click randomly on one of those artists to then shuffle a song from that artist, how hard can it be to do that programmatically in Spotify?


This would be cool but what I've always thought would also be cool is the ability to create playlists of artists, not songs. So I could pick any number of artists and Spotify would randomly pick a song from each artist. But it doesn't add the song to the playlist. The playlist is only artists. Each time I listen through the playlist, and an artist came up that I've already listened to, it would randomly pick a different song from the artist. The problem with doing it for every artist I follow is the playlist would lack focus and I'd be doing a lot of skipping.


The closest existing feature I can think of is Blends. You can create a Blend with a friend and instead of a playlist that gets stale after a week, it updates the songs each day. This idea would be similar, except it wouldn't show you the songs, it just randomly picks them from the artists you chose.


So almost two years later Spotify made a post that their teams will work on this suggestion to put it in action. Still nothing from Spotify. They don't **bleep** aboot their paying customers and what they want the most. 


Please add back the shuffle button to artists. There use to be the shuffle buttonnextt to the play button seem you got rid of it last update. 


Hurry up Spotify. 


I would love to see this feature implemented!

Do you know how long this suggestion had been made, not just by me but a
grip of other Spotify users for years?? I don't think they'll do it, thrive
been saying for years they'll do it if enough people want it, well... We've
spoken and they're just lazy. It'll never happen in my lifetime.
