I know this has been posted time and time again by multiple users but I'm going to reiterate.
The shuffle feature on Spotify is extremely uneffective.
I've been using Spotify premium for several months now, and have noticed that the shuffle feature *still* sucks.
Im sure the developers are tired of hearing this, but to give an example, I've found:
A: The best way to get a shuffle experience for myself is to actually turn *off* shuffle and start my track list from the beginning of when I started adding songs. It's more effective than the actual shuffle feature itself.
B: I've used shuffle for several hours at a time, constantly having to skip songs that I heard in the first 10 minutes of when I used shuffle last.
I know the issue has been addressed and said to be fixed, but it's still an issue.
