[Speakers][Playlists] Make 'Shuffle Play' default option

Smart speakers are amazing, and a great way to make our home smart. But the apps connected to it should also be! 

Whenever we ask for our speakers to play a playlist/artist, it ALWAYS starts with the same song, and the following ones are in the SAME order. It's annoying, because I really like my playlists, and won't ever hear the entirety of 322 songs on them in one go.

Same as the UI in the apps/desktop, the default option should be SHUFFLE PLAY. That's how all Spotify users are accostumed to use the app, and explicitly stating "shuffle play XYZ playlist" is too long/tedious a command.

Pleaaase, follow all principles of good UX and make it similar across devices!

This is a terrible idea, I’m sorry but default shuffle is annoying. If you want to listen to your playlist, it would be easier to say Alexa shuffle playlist x or even put the shuffle sign on through the Spotify app.
