Here are some pure shuffle screenshots.

Here are some where I choose a song like halfway through the playlist.

any time I toggle on and off shuffle, I get the same effect.

 

I've never organically noticed it, but it seems to happen on any Deep Dive playlist. I have a feeling it is based on the number of songs in the playlist?

 

Also let me note shuffle works fine on some 700-900 song playlists I've made myself. It's just the Spotify playlists (I've only tested Deep Dive).

Hi, 

 

So just to make sure, this is intentional? It seems horribly broken. There's no attempt going on to fix this?

 

I just find it surprising that shuffle would ever be designed to play the same songs over and over no matter what.

Solution!

Hey @tvarano54

 

We understand where you're coming from. 

 

As @Jeremy mentioned, this is expected behavior for Spotify-created playlists, but no worries it doesn't affect your own playlists.

 

We really value your feedback as it helps us to improve the app, and we'll make sure to pass this on to the right folks here at Spotify.

 

We hope this clear things up. If you need help with anything else, just let us know.
