Shuffle Algorithm? Please make it better.

It just played the same song 3 times within 18 songs, in a huge playlist. How TF can you mess up something as simple as shuffle....

 

See attached screenshot of shuffle playing history...

 Hey folks!

 

When using Spotify Connect from one device to another, the shuffle won't work as intended on bigger playlists.

 

The right team is aware of this issue. Head to this post for any future updates on this.

 

If anything else comes up, don't hesitate to open a new thread.

 

Cheers.

Looks like you are connected with Spotify Connect or maybe Chromecast (the screenshot ain't clickable)? Spotify has confimed that over SC the shuffle only works on 100 songs around the current playing. With more and more people pointing this out maybe they'll do something about it ... one day, in another 2 years or so.
