[Mobile] Bring Back "Shuffle All" for Playlist Folders

The latest spotify for android update, as well as the newest iOS update, removed the "shuffle all" option for multiple playlists within a folder. I used this feature every day and it's my favorite spotify feature. Please bring it back!

Hey everyone, we recently took the decision to remove the ability to shuffle all songs in a playlist folder on mobile devices (you can still do this from your Spotify Desktop app). As this was a very recent decision we're going to mark this idea as 'Not Right Now'.
If you're looking for a quick way to shuffle those songs you can add all songs from the folder to one playlist and then hit shuffle. This feature is also available on Desktop so if you start playing there and transfer to your mobile via Connect you will be able to listen to the shuffled folder. 
Of course we always want your feedback around changes we've made. Please continue to leave your comments and feedback here so we can bring it to the appropriate teams. Keep an eye here for updates--thanks everyone.

Please bring back shuffle all songs in folders within a playlist for premium subscribers. Don't really see any benefit to removing this feature...Especially when you "shuffle" on an artist's page and it only shuffles a select amount of songs in their discography. Very lame.


Can't believe, while navigating through the community forums, how many people I saw complaining about the shuffle button...Here's an idea: don't hit it if you don't want to shuffle; problem solved. 

Concert Regular

this is the most stupid thing spotify ever has done


Really missing this feature too. Used it every day.

Gig Goer

Used this feature quite a bit. Why was it removed?


Android users getting shafted again. Can't amend playlists on Android, and now we can't shuffle play all songs from a list? Why did that get removed? Ridiculous.

Marked as new idea.

Music Lover

Another bad idea from Spotify. Remove a perfectly good, useful feature that power users loved. If you are going to remove this at least replace with the ability to queue full playlists. 

Garage Band

Why marked as new? It is a "bugfix". A feature that was working perfectly fine and they removed (intentionally or not)...

Music Fan

This is just plain dumb. I don't actually even believe that anybody consciously removed this in an app update...more like it just got completely lost in regression testing. I'm going to assume that's what happened, and I'm going to thank the Spotify app development team in advance for bringing this feature back in the next app update!  Thank you!!!

This was the main reason I kept my premium subscription even with the ridiculous 3.333 download limit that no other service has. Hierarchical folders were a unique Spotify feature and essential to me. My whole library organization depends on that. Please bring it back, you have just killed the only differential Spotify still had.
