Will the shuffle feature ever be fixed?

Status: Not An Issue
Hi, I have had a premium account for multiple years now but I am very unhappy that the shuffle mode is so broken.
Essentially, it only takes very few songs of a playlist into account. If I order by name, only songs starting with the letters W-Z are played at all. This is completely unacceptable to me, especially since there have been complaints about that on your forums for many years... Is there any plan on fixing this?
I just tried out Deezer and they have no problem with randomizing the playlist.

We’ve recently made some improvements to our shuffle algorithm. We’d love to hear your feedback here: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Implemented-Ideas/Implement-an-actual-shuffle-function/idc-p/128618....
