[BUG] Spotify Connect only shuffles 100 songs

It's been two years and this is still a problem.

 

It occurred to me that a good workaround would be to shuffle the Daily Mix playlists on devices  since they have less than 100 tracks but of course the Daily Mix playlists aren't on the Roku.

 

Spotify - please fix this problem.

Theres a simple way how they could fix it. I think the problem is because of some overhead, the same problem has Kodi if someone knows this. If you try to shuffle a big library, Kodi will crash. Kodi creates a "partymode". In this partymode Kodi takes random 20 titles of your library and shuffle them. If all tracks are played, Kodi takes the next 20 titles and shuffle them and so on...

I dont know why spotify isnt able to do this, this could be also possible for specified playlists.

Strange. My android device is now shuffling propererly over connect. Tried various large playlists and it does seem to be randomised across artist, genre, date added etc. My ipad however still has the same fault. ..anyone elses android seem better?

Spotify Connect is now finally working (at least for me)!

I guess they haven't announced it yet, as they want to see it is stable and/or working on most equipment.

 

6000+ playlist, iPhone / MacBook with NAD M12/M22.

I am giving this a partial PASS only. I used pukingpope's playlist from earlier in this thread as a test.

 

When I play a playlist from my Android device, the shuffle appears to work as expected when casting via Spotify Connect to either my laptop or my Android TV.

 

However, when I do exactly the same thing from my laptop and cast it to my phone or TV, it only shuffles the "first" 100 songs as before.

 

On a whim, I decided to try the browser player on my laptop as an additional test. I was able to cast music via Spotify Connect to my TV and it shuffled fine. 

 

The only place where it is not currently working is on my desktop Spotify app.

 

I am kind of OK with this because I would generally only cast from my phone. I would prefer a more complete fix, but maybe the desktop app will be updated in the near future with this fix.

Hmmm, as I posted the previous comment, Spotify on my desktop prompted me to update. After the update, casting via Spotify Connect to my TV or Phone works fine from my desktop as well now.

 

I can now sleep soundly tonight knowing that my music collection can be used the way it mean to be

Its a miracle!

 

Now just to fix the fact there is no crossfade option over connect..........

 

Today would be a good day to fix this!
