My Question or Issue
Whenever I connect/disconnect or switch to a different device on Spotify connect whether its from my laptop to my phone or to my google home my queue gets re-shuffled every time.
I find this quite annoying because I end up having to constantly skip through songs which I've just heard because now they're all in a different order.
That seems odd, but don't worry. I'm here to help!
I want to suggest that you try logging out everywhere. After that log back in on all of your devices. This should force a account wide server resync. If this doesn't change anything I'd ask you to try creating a test account with another email or Facebook and check whether the other account behaves the same way.
Let me know how it goes.
Hi there @Declancheetham,
Thanks for getting back in touch.
Could you let us know if this only happens when the Shuffle option is on?
Additionally, sending us the exact make/model, operating system and Spotify version of your device would come in handy.
Also, would you mind sending us a short video of the issue happening so we can take a closer look?
We'll be on the lookout for your reply.
Thanks for getting back to us with this info.
If possible, could you ask a friend or a family member to log in to their personal account using your device to see if they can replicate this?
Keep us posted.
Thanks for your reply.
Not to worry. In this case, could you try creating a new test account here? This will help us continue investigating the issue.
Let us know how it goes.
Hi again @Declancheetham,
Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
This currently seems to be an expected behavior.
We really value your feedback as it helps inform our decisions going forward, and we'll be sure to pass this on to the right folks here at Spotify.
Don't hesitate to let us know if anything else comes up.
Have a good one!
I'm totally baffled by the last response. What does "this currently seems to be an expected behavior" mean? I have been experiencing the same issue and it's incredibly frustrating, especially when you have a huge playlist and you are halfway through, switch to a different device, and now the queue has reshuffled and songs you've already listened to are back in the queue. Did the tech's final response mean that the behavior is normal? When I switch devices, there is no good reason for my queue to reshuffle.
Late to the party. But if you stop listening on one device and then turn on another they are two separate listening instances so it would be normal. If you’re listening say on your phone, turn your laptop on and they connect so you swap the speaker output it transfers the instance. But you’d have to do that every time you switch device
