[Music] Shuffle by Album

Simple enough concept:  Shuffle by albums instead of by tracks, for those of us who prefer full-album listening.


Should function at least within playlists and the play queue.  Perhaps it could also work in radio mode.

Hey folks,
We really appreciate so many of you coming to the Community, adding your votes and comments to this idea!
We're keeping this idea at 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. 
If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.


Why is Spotify becoming more like Pandora? It used to shuffle the music within the album and not from random artist unless all the music were played. That's not a good feature and people might as well listen to pandora since the shuffles are more similar to the artist. Changing that will keep your fans who can't do the premium. 


Dear Spotify,


What is the point of having this community board for your PAYING customers only to ignore their basic requests. Invest in your software development. Invest in your company. Do right by your customers. I know many people first hand with this preferred listening method, and this thread makes it very apparent so many others share that preference. 


I spend 5 minutes each evening queuing up my sleep album "playlist" to ease my insomnia. I like to listen to similar genres but not always in the same order. Artists put tracks in order for a reason. While blatantly ignoring customer requests, you're doing a serious disservice to artists and listeners everywhere 


-Disappointed customer 

i mean i am not a paying customer anymore because the service is useless to
me without this feature
you could call me a potential customer but at this point even if they did
implement it i wouldn't be in a hurry to return after they took years to
implement a trivially easy feature

Commenting to lend my support behind this idea. For listeners of classical music especially this would be a really great option for playlists with many albums. (Classification of classical and pre-20th century music in general sucks, please help us; make it easier to search for and listen to it.)


Not having this makes it really annoying to shuffle through albums of classical music.


Pieces get split into movements that get represented as different tracks on an album. To listen to a whole piece while in shuffle is impossible. Classical playlists end up being unshufflable because of this... 


I'm sorry to see that you are prioritizing playlists even *at the expense* of albums. This is just unnecessary.


Just do it - makes sense as many artists want us to go on a journey through a full album.


Please reconsider doing this. It's so simple and would improve the experience of a small but committed group of users by a lot.


 So I downgraded from Premium when I lost my student pricing and I'm not purchasing Premium again until shuffle by album is in Spotify.


Such a simple thing to add that there's just no reason not to, double tap the shuffle button, pleeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaase add it pleaaaase x
