My Question or Issue
How do I tell if a Spotify code is for just one individual song, or for a playlist that was created by someone? I have a code, and when I scan it, one song is featured toward the top, but then below, I see "shuffled with" followed by several more songs I can scroll through if I hit "and more."
Are the "shuffled with" songs the playlist that someone put together and is being shared? Or are the "shuffled with" songs just some recommendations that Spotify is automatically generating from a single song embedded in the Spotify code?
Any clarification is much appreciated - thanks!!

Thanks for clarifying!
The shuffled with section appears when you scan a code that leads to an individual track. Since you mentioned that you're on Free, all tracks under that section were added by the Spotify app itself as the Free version does not support on-demand listening, only shuffle-play. So the app shows you the song and the artist, but hitting play will actually cause the app to create a small playlist based on that song and to play a random one instead.
If a Premium user scans a code for a track, it will play directly.
If you were to scan a code for a playlist, you'd instead see the playlist's name and author as well as some of the tracks in it. In case the playlist has less than 15 tracks, you'll see the following sections:
Once again, you can only shuffle-play the playlist, as you're on Free. Premium users would see the full contents of the playlist.
Hope this clears things up. If you have any additional questions about this, feel free to reach out to the Community again, or get in touch with the folks over at firstname.lastname@example.org.
