[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.

Excuse my language, but gahd dammit Spotify. This was suggested OVER A YEAR AGO and is common funcionality in many music playing apps - why have you not implemented this?

 

I'm thinking for switching to another service soely to have this feature for myself, by the way. 😐

Please implement this, that way I'll have no need for an additional media player.

Why haven't they responded yet? This is clearly a good idea and doesn't seem like it'd be too hard to implement.

Indeed, how is it possible that this issue hasn't been solved (implemented) yet! Or even simply answered with some predictions of implementation.

Checking in again almost 2 years after posting this. Doesn't seem like there's been any acknowledgement yet. I would really like to at least see a response along the lines of "we're aware of this, and might consider it someday."

 

Full albums are continuing to grow in popularity. More concept albums are being released by artists. Heck, even vinyl is making a comeback. Gapless playback is supported these days on Spotify. I have 50 playlists of different groupings of albums that I can't shuffle.

 

Any love for this suggestion, Spotify?
