My Question or Issue

I can't start a playlist through the shuffle button in landscape mode.

In the attached screen recording I restart the app, show that the button does not start in landscape mode but portrait two times.

As I use spotify mostly on my tablet, it is quite annoying

Hi there @AlxndrJhn,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!

 

Can you try running a clean reinstall of the app by following the steps from this Guide exactly.

 

If the Shuffle button keeps misfunctioning after that let us know if this is happening in every playlist or just Discover Weekly.

 

Keep us posted 🙂

I followed the instruction but the problem still persists.

Affects weekly discovery and my private playlists.

Hey there @AlxndrJhn

 

Thanks for getting back in touch and letting us know that. 

 

Would you mind trying if the issue persists using a different mobile device?

 

If the issues also happens there, could you send us the exact make/model, operating system and Spotify version of both affected devices?

 

Also, could you let us know if this also happens when you try to play an album, or if it's exclusive to playlists?

 

We'll be on the lookout for your reply!

I'm also experiencing this issue on my Samsung Tab S7+ in landscape mode on version 8.6.0.830 and Android 11.

 

Seems to just be playlists for me but it is whenever the shuffle button is minimised in the top right corner rather than the large centered one above the tracklist.

My Question or Issue

Whenever I tap shuffle play on a playlist, nothing happens. This only happens for playlists and not albums, podcasts, etc. Any idea how to fix this? I've already cleared the cache, reinstalled, restarted my computer, etc. and nothing works.

Hey @fluffielixie,

 

Thanks for keeping us posted 🙂

 

Could you give these steps a go and run a clean reinstall? This one is more thorough than usual one.

 

It's also a good idea to run the app as an administrator to check if there are any changes.

 

If the issue persists, could you share with us the exact Spotify version? We'll investigate this further.

 

Let us know how it goes. If you have questions, you know where to find us.
