shuffle songs not shuffling full list of songs

Hi all,  I use spotify offline on my iphone whilst driving and usually have it set to shuffle all of my songs so it would show on my car as 1/1040  but lately its only shuffling 200 of my most recent added songs and it shows up on my car as 1/200 so its no longer registering the 800+ other songs. I've tried reinstalling the app and I thought maybe I could add all the songs to one playlist by going online and selecting a song  then using CTRL+A to highlight all the tracks but that doesn't seem to work now either ! Can anyone please help other wise I have to try and add 1040 songs manually to one playlist!

I am not sure but I think the problem is the number of the songs that you wanted to put in one playlist, too many probably. The shuffle feature probably does not work with the playlists with more than 200 songs in it as you have experienced, which is understandable because it would be more complex for the app and it would cause crashes etc. 

Why don't you try dividing those 10K songs into more than one playlists? Moreover, you can put them under the same folder and access them easily.
