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!

Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your vote to this idea!
We're setting this idea to 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts.
If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.
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.
this is the most stupid thing spotify ever has done
Really missing this feature too. Used it every day.
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.
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.
Why marked as new? It is a "bugfix". A feature that was working perfectly fine and they removed (intentionally or not)...
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.
